Until a few months ago, Rozi Khan had not even heard of Peter Dinklage or Tyrion Lannister.

In the beginning, they started calling me Peter Dinklage. After that I saw his show, and then slowly, slowly I became famous.

The resemblance between the two is so uncanny they even have the same height. Both men are 4 feet 5 inches tall.

The eighth and final season of the wildly popular Game of Thrones concludes on May 19.
