Peter Dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, sees no one better to sit on the Iron Throne than Bran Stark.

He has own reasons.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the 50-year-old actor said Bran was the only pure person left among the contenders.

"And the fact he cannot father children is key because they’ve repeated the cycle in this Westeros history of heirs being really bad," said he.

GoT showrunners David Benioff and D B Weiss recently confirmed in the Game of Thrones season eight DVD Commentary that Bran Stark is also George R R Martin's planned King of Westeros in his upcoming books.
