Peter Dinklage and his wife Erica Schmidt were every inch the perfect couple as they joined a cast of stars for a screening of his romantic musical Cyrano in New York City after collaborating on the original stage version in 2019.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ star, who plays the title character Cyrano de Bergerac, walked the red carpet for the star-studded screening alongside his wife, who wrote the film’s screenplay based on their own stage adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play .
For the occasion, Peter cut a dapper figure in a navy three-piece suit, while his wife of 16 and over opted for a loose-fitting black velvet dress.

Dinklage, 52, paired his blue suit with a white shirt, gray suede boots and a purple tie.
He still sports a mustache and goatee combination while keeping his dark brown locks styled with a slightly scruffy look.
While sharing the red carpet spotlight, the New Jersey native captured Schmidt.
The design of her full-length number included reinforced shoulders and a modest neckline.
She had her auburn locks styled with bangs and pulled back from her face in a bun.
Classy: The Game Of Thrones star was dressed in a navy three-piece suit, while his wife, who was more than 16, opted for a black velvet dress.
Personal and professional team: Dinklage plays the title character of Cyrano de Bergerac and Schmidt wrote the screenplay based on both her 2018 stage adaptation and Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac
With productions such as The Sorcerer, All The Fine Boys and Cyrano on her resume, Schmidt, 46, has made a name for herself in the theater world.
Their musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic play tells the story of Cyrano de Bergerac (Dinklage) who longs for the affection of the beautiful Roxanne (Haley Bennett), who has fallen in love with another man, Christian de Neuvillette (Kelvin Harrison Jr. ). Though Cyrano understands that his social status and physical appearance will forever keep him from his love, he offers Christian his skills as a gifted poet in order to bring him and Roxanne together once and for all.
The ensuing love triangle – against the backdrop of a looming war – is both humorous and wistfully bittersweet.
