New Delhi: Is the cult series, Game of Thrones, reaching Pakistan? This seems to be the question on the minds of every GoT fan ever since the Internet discovered a Tyrion Lannister lookalike allegedly from Pakistan.

Lannister, a Game of Thrones character, is played by American actor Peter Dinklage and Pakistani national Rozi Khan has become the latest recipient of instant Internet stardom with his striking resemblance to the actor. However, the 25-year-old waiter from Mansehra confesses to having never heard of HBO's fictional show until he heard people talking about his uncanny resemblance to the popular character Tyrion Lannister from the series.

This resemblance has attracted quite a fan following for Khan who admitted that people often stop him to get a picture clicked with him. However, he remains unfazed and told AFP in an interview, “I don’t mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that’s why I have become very famous everywhere."

Interestingly, not just his facial features but he also stands as tall as the American actor, Dinklage, at 135 cms (4 feet 5 inches). 

Game of Thrones is slated to release its eighth and final season of the series on 14 April on HBO. There are already many theories floating about the finale among fans as well as the actors. In separate interviews, actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage(Tyrion Lannister) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) hinted cryptically at their characters dying.
