Los Angeles – Fans of Game of Thrones can’t seem to get enough of series star Peter Dinklage—and that’s why, with the hit series’ fourth season now underway, PETA is launching the Emmy Award–winning actor’s new video exposé of the meat, egg, and dairy industries. And although fans may relish the bloody battle scenes in Game of Thrones, they may be shocked by the violence revealed in Dinklage’s “Face Your Food,” a follow-up to Paul McCartney’s “Glass Walls” and Alec Baldwin’s “Meet Your Meat” videos.

“The images that you’re about to see might make you want to turn away, but this is what you pay for every time you buy meat, eggs, and dairy products,” Dinklage begins in the video short, which debuts today on PETA.org. “That’s why tens of millions of kind people just in the United States alone have decided to leave animal products off their plates for good.”

And Dinklage is one of them: He first went vegetarian at the age of 16, and he credits his dad with helping him make that decision. “My father was a big influence on me in terms of having a great respect for nature at a young age,” he says in an exclusive video interview with PETA. And Dinklage adds that over the years, it’s gotten easier to find vegan food. “There’s so many more organic markets, soy products, restaurants,” he says. “It truly is less expensive and very easy to find.”

“As you’ve seen here,” concludes Dinklage in the exposé, “by buying meat, eggs, and dairy products, you’re paying for cruelty. Please make the kind choice.”

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
