Game of Thrones was loved by fantasy fans across the globe for many reasons. There was political intrigue, fantastical creatures, beautiful vistas, and above all, nuanced and relatable characters with great dialogue.
And whilst there were many characters with quotable lines, Tyrion Lannister and Ser Bronn of the Blackwater had some of the best moments in the entire show.
Peter Dinklage was born to play Tyrion. He captured the wit and intellect of his character perfectly, and he was always entertaining whenever he was on screen. As well as having some laugh-out-loud lines, Tyrion regularly spoke words of wisdom.
Bronn (played by Jerome Flynn) wasn’t as educated as Tyrion, but he still had plenty of great lines. Indeed, he was one of the funniest characters in the entire show and he never apologised for speaking the truth.
It’s hardly surprising, therefore, that these two characters got along so well. Whilst Bronn’s loyalty to Tyrion was partly motivated by financial gain, the two of them developed a close bond throughout the show's eight seasons.
But can you remember who said which line?
