Sci-Fi Wire Interviews Peter Dinklage
From Sci-Fi Wire: In Prince Caspian, Trumpkin has lived through the destruction of Narnia and becomes a cynical survivor with little faith that the Pevensie children can restore his world to order.

When things are too faithful to the books, it’s sort of like why make the movie when you can read the book? What I like about this is they tweaked things here and there and changed things, and maybe I’m speaking because they expanded my character quite a bit,” he added with tongue in cheek.
