Game of Thrones Star Backs Farm Sanctuary

Actor Peter Dinklage has become a spokesperson for animal-welfare organization Farm Sanctuary.

Many fans of Game of Thrones are diehard about the HBO series, but what they may not know that one of its stars, Peter Dinklage, is also diehard—about his support for animal welfare. Dinklage, who portrays the fan-favorite character Tyrion Lannister on the show, has become the new face of Farm Sanctuary’s Walk For Farm Animals campaign, which aims to increase awareness about the plight and mistreatment of farm animals. “I am outraged by animal cruelty whenever I see it, and like you, I want to do something about it,” he says in the new campaign video. Dinklage has also previously appeared in public service announcements for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
