Hugely popular little person Warwick Davies who has starred in Willow and Countdown during his glittering career has revealed that he will be taking over from Peter Dinkylage in Game of Thrones for the final season.
Warwick has announced that while Peter did a damned good job as the resentful gnome who "drinks and knows things" he's basically not dwarfy enough for the tragi-comedy planned in the final series.
"It was decided that Peter is just too good an actor, he's more Shakespeare than pantomime, he has this really serious face and no one could even imagine him running across a stage and getting hit by a shovel" said Warwick.
"Warwick will be required to run across a dragons backs crying," ooh, he's fierce, he's got a good set of teeth hasn't he , Danearys?" before being lasooed to the ground by Jon Snow," said producers.
"Peter just couldn't wriggle on the ground like Warwick could," said a source.
A spokesman for Peter Dinkylage said "Peter refused to do it."
