Acclaimed dwarf actor Peter Dinklage is sick of being asked to speak to colleges about his size - because he doesn't want to become the poster boy for little people.

The STATION AGENT star is often approached by organisations hoping to spread the word about little people's struggles, but he's not interested in becoming their spokesman.

He says, "I've felt a lot of almost responsibility. It's kind of like, 'I'm just an actor.'

"A lot of people want me to go to colleges and make speeches and things. I'm not a spokesperson. At the end of the day, I'm an actor who wants a gig."
