(RADIO.COM) – Peter Dinklage is famous for playing Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but his musical background may surprise you.

Dinklage was part of a punk rock band called Whizzy in the mid-90s. “I was like Sid Vicious, just bleeding all over the stage,” Dinklage told Playboy in a recent interview.

“Blood was going everywhere. I just grabbed a dirty bar napkin and dabbed my head and went on with show.”

Sounds like a performance a Lannister could get behind.
