Zelig Dinklage is the celebrity daughter of talented theatre director and an actress Erica Schmidt and New Jersey-born actor Peter Dinklage from HBO television series, Games of Thrones. Zelig is not the kind of kid you get to meet at all times as she is not often seen with her parents when they attend public events together.
As someone who comes from an entertainment family, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the younger Dinklage joins her parents in the show business sometime in the nearest future. Presently, the young girl is focusing on her education and it’s unclear if her parents have plans of pushing her to the spotlight at an early age.

More Facts About Peter Dinklage’s Daughter
1. Her Parents Are Hollywood Heavyweights
While Zelig’s mom banks as an actress, writer, and theatre director, her dad is an award-winning actor who started featuring in films since 1995. He starred in numerous Hollywood productions and eventually found fame sometime in 2011 after he was cast as Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones, for which he earned international recognition and widespread praise for his superlative performance.
Since Peter launched his acting career, he has been featured in several projects but these movies are considered his most critically acclaimed projects: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017), Lassie (2005), Living in Oblivion (1995), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and The Station Agent (2003).
The American actor has snagged about fifty-eight nominations and twelve prestigious awards for his involvements in blockbusters such as Game of Thrones. Some of his awards include Primetime Emmy Awards (thrice for GoT) and a Golden Globe Award. Peter has also been nominated for Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor (in 2012, 2016 and 2017), as well as Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor from 2013 to 2017 in a row, making him one of greatest actors of his kind.
Zelig’s mom is best known for emerging as the winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show which she won for her excellence in New York Off-Broadway theatre. As a phenomenal director, some of Erica’s professional credits include Debbie Does Dallas (2002), Humor Abuse (2009), Cyrano (2018), Carnival! (2006), A Month in the Country (2017), People Be Heard (2004) and many others. The actress has also starred in the widely acclaimed 2002 drama, Miles from Nowhere.

2. Zelig Dinklage Has One Sibling
Zelig Dinklage has one younger sibling whose name and sex is yet to be made public. Peter and Erica welcomed their second child together in the year 2017 and the two are currently raising the baby together.
3. Height & Body Measurements
There is no available information about Zelig’s height, weight, and body measurements. This is mainly because she is still a young girl and has many years ahead of her to grow taller and bigger. Secondly, Peter and his wife are very protective of their daughter and this rules out the possibility of giving away details of their daughter’s body statistics to the public, at least for now.
As for Zelig’s dad, he has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia which largely affected the growth of his bones. He is 4 feet 5 inches tall and his wife stands at a height of 1.68 meters (5 feet 6 inches) and weighs 59 kilograms (130 lb).
Erica and Peter’s eldest child is widely believed to be named Zelig but to date, neither the Game Of Thrones star nor his beautiful wife has even confirmed that much because the couple lives an ultra-private life and they rarely make public appearances with their kids.
