Not as much as the fantasy series but the Game of Thrones fan theories are quite popular. The star of the HBO series, Peter Dinklage fueled one such theory in his speech at the Emmy Awards. While receiving his award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a drama series, he thanked his on-screen brother Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and his statement was received as a spoiler by fans.

Dinklage addressed Nickolaj as ‘brother from another mother’ and the fan theorists took it quite literally. This went on to charge up the theory that claims Tyrion Lannister, the character that Peter Dinklage plays, is the ‘third head of the dragon’.

Daenerys Targaryen hears a voice in her visions which says ‘The dragon has three heads’, igniting the theory. Fans claim that Tyrion Lannister is the illegitimate child of Aerys Targaryen and Joanna Lannister and therefore he could tame one of Dany’s dragon because he has Targaryen blood in him.

Hence, fans assumed that the actor blurted out a spoiler in his acceptance speech.

Peter Dinklage appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show, where he was asked if he really spilled the beans at Emmy’s. The actor laughed it off and said, “I love all of that.”

“I like to think that I would be smart enough not to just blurt out spoilers in front of the four viewers of the Emmys,” he added.
