Peter Dinklage says he is ready for Game of Thrones to end.

Game of Thrones fans have known that the end of the series was near, even if they were not ready to leave the franchise. But at least one of the actors says it is the right time to end the show.

Yeah, it’s time. Storywise, not just for all our lives,” Peter Dinklage told Variety. “It’s the perfect timing to end it.”

Dinklage, who has won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for playing Tyrion Lannister, called the upcoming ending “bittersweet” and a “sad part of our business.” Yet he indicated that it was better for a show to go out while it was still on top.

“Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing,” he said.

Peter Dinklage is currently attending the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere of his new movie I Think We’re Alone Now. The movie also stars Elle Fanning and was directed by Reed Morano.
