Pakistani finds fame as ‘Game of Thrones’ doppelganger

 

Pakistani waiter Rozi Khan had never heard of the Game of Thrones or its hugely popular character Tyrion Lannister until his striking resemblance to the dwarf anti-hero got heads turning at home.

The 25-year-old so resembles actor Peter Dinklage — who has played the witty and wily nobleman since the hit series’ first season in 2010 — that he gets regularly stopped by strangers desperate for a picture.

“I don’t mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that’s why I have become very famous everywhere,” he said.

Not only are Khan and Dinklage’s faces strikingly similar, but they are also the same height at around 135 cms (4 ft 5in).

Photographs of the pair have unsurprisingly made their way onto social media showing the doppelgangers side-by-side.

“Wherever I go, someone says to me: ‘Sir, who is this man with you on Facebook’, I say that he is my friend. ‘He looks like you’. I tell them he is my brother. It’s not a bad thing,” said Khan.

The television series has won 47 Emmys — more than any other fictional show in history — along with a Golden Globe for Dinklage, 49, for best supporting actor in 2012.

A much anticipated final series is set to premiere on April 17

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
