HBO Confirms Air Dates And Run Times Of Final ‘Game Of Thrones’ Episodes

HBO Confirms Air Dates And Run Times Of Final ‘Game Of Thrones’ Episodes As the premiere of the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” approaches, HBO has released the air date and run times for the upcoming episodes. While earlier rumours indicated the six-episode season would comprise super-sized, feature-length episodes, this doesn’t appear to be the case for all, as the first two episodes of the season clock in at 54 minutes and 58 minutes, respectively. However, subsequent episodes are indeed longer, averaging about 1 hour and 20 minutes in length.

HBO scattered six Iron Thrones around the world ahead of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 We're less than a month out from the premiere of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, and despite the show's insane level of popularity, HBO has nevertheless been trying some expected -- as well as some novel -- ways to get the word out about the new season's imminent arrival.

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

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, 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.

Khan works at a small Kashmiri restaurant down a narrow line in Rawalpindi, serving customers hearty dishes such as mutton and spinach curries.

Owner Malik Aslam Pervez described him as a hard-worker -- and also a drawcard for the eatery.

"When he takes a day off or gets sick, people look for him and ask where did he go? They get upset. They love him. There is always a crowd here but it has boomed because of him," he said.

Born in Mansehra in northern Pakistan, Khan says he would love to meet Dinklage, describing him as a friend and brother.

"I love him very much, he is my friend... he is my height so I like him a lot," said Khan.

For customers, seeing Tyrion Lannister in the flesh is also a thrill.

"When I saw him, I'm happy, I feel that I met with Lannister in real [life]," said Zain Hadri, 20.

"Game of Thrones" tells the story of noble families vying for control of the Iron Throne, all the while keeping one eye on the "White Walkers" leading hordes of the undead toward an invasion from the North.
