Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage had a full-on mullet in a picture from his 1987 high school yearbook.

Peter Dinklage's Mullet

In the late 1980s, Dinklage attended Delbarton prep school in New Jersey, where he proudly sported a mullet that had an impressive amount of volume. A Reddit user uncovered the yearbook photo of the actor with the ‘do and uploaded it for posterity. It wasn’t long before the vintage snap went viral – on imgur is has more that 1.5 million views.

Complementing the actor’s hair in the yearbook picture was his senior quote, which was by actor and writer Sam Shepard. It reads, “Words are the tools of imagery in motion."

After graduating from Delbarton in 1987, Dinklage went on to study at Bennington College, from where he graduated in 1991. While at Bennington, Dinklage apparently had some more fun with his hair. He had “long flowing hair,” Dinklage’s college friend told Esquire earlier in the year. “The hair was unbelievable, like total hippie hair.”

In 1995, Dinklage landed his first film role in Living in Oblivion in which he played a frustrated actor with dwarfism. His breakout role came almost a decade later in 2003’s The Station Agent. Since then, he’s appeared in a number of features, including Elf, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

For his role as Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, Dinklage has won an Emmy and a Golden Globe in the supporting actor category.
