Before He Was Tyrion Lannister, Peter Dinklage Was a High School Student with a Dream, and a Mullet

You know him as Tyrion Lannister and perhaps as the Station Agent, but did you know that in high school Peter Dinklage rocked the baddest mullet of them all? A former classmate of his recently posted this picture from the 1987 Delbarton School yearbook on Reddit. It shows Dinklage with one of history’s top five mullets and the quote, which is cut off, is from playwright Sam Shepard: “Words are tools of imagery in motion.” It’s a much better quote than that chemistry girl’s.

Dinklage has spoken before about being an outcast in high school and it’s hard to see why because this mullet should have propelled him to the top of the social ladder in 1987. Nevertheless, now he’s starring in a wildly popular television show and his old classmates are spending their day looking at Reddit. Revenge is so sweet.
