With just three weeks until the premiere of the final season of hit drama series Game of Thrones, a Pakistani waiter has been dominating social media timelines for his resemblance to one of the show's most-loved characters.

Rozi Khan has never watched Game of Thrones but has been inundated with requests from fans who think he is the show's Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf whom many love to hate.

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

He said he hopes to one day meet actor Peter Dinklage, who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister.

Pictures of Rozi have circulated among Game of Thrones fans on social media, with many pointing out that they have a very similar height and facial structure.

A trailer for the eighth season of the series, which premieres on April 14, was released earlier this month to much fanfare.

The trailer opens on Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) alternately running for her life and, it seems, calmly preparing to shank a rival. The series' long-awaited war seems imminent, as we see Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) preparing for battle.

The season will contain only six episodes, with individual episodes set to run for 90 minutes or more.
