Peter has a condition called, Achondroplasia which is a common form of dwarfism. Even though his teenage years were fretted with frustration and anger due to his unusual condition, he became more tolerant and receptive once he entered adulthood.
Early in his acting career, Dinklage refused to accept “typical” roles for actors with dwarfism, like “elves for leprechauns”. As a result, he often struggled to find work. While he had only a small part, Dinklage made an impressive debut in the 1995 parody of the independent film world, “Living in Oblivion”, playing a dwarf hired for a dream sequence who goes off on the film’s director, Steve Buscemi.
