If you’re a “Game of Thrones” fan, the first voice you’ll hear tonight on NBC Olympics’ coverage of the Sochi Opening Ceremony (7:30 p.m. ET, NBC) will be very familiar.

Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the popular TV drama, is the narrator for the opening seven-minute segment that will set the stage for tonight’s festivities.

You can check out a piece of the full segment over at The Hollywood Reporter.

Last month, the BBC unveiled its Sochi Olympics trailer featuring narration from another “Game of Thrones” actor, Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister).
