Peter Dinklage wasn't sure he wanted to play Trumpkin (the red dwarf) in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Therefore, the actor flew to Los Angeles to meet with Andrew Adamson, who had directed the first Chronicles of Narnia movie three years ago and was in pre-production before directing the sequel.
"I wasn't completely sold on the idea until I met him," Dinklage told USA Today.
After seeing his own images on a story board, though, Dinklage was sold.

In the sequel, out today, the Pevensie children return to Narnia to help Prince Caspian claim his throne, which has been usurped by his evil uncle, King Miraz. Trumpkin, one of the many Narnians in hiding, fights alongside the Pevensies.
He's a "cynical, begrudging caretaker," Dinklage said. "I'm like the crazy Mary Poppins."
Sounds interesting to us. Count us in!
