Game of Thrones star: I look like Prince Charming from ‘Shrek’!

Watch "Game of Thrones" and you may catch your breath at how uncannily the character Jaime Lannister looks like Prince Charming of "Shrek".

Playing the part of the arrogant knight in the critically acclaimed HBO production, Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau believes he was the first to recognise the similarity.

"The funny thing is… I think I was the first to say that when we shot the pilot," revealed the 41-year-old actor in a video interview from London. "When I put the armour on for the first time, I said, 'That's Prince Charming from Shrek'."

Answering a few exclusive questions from Yahoo!, Coster-Waldau asserted that he had no qualms playing the villain in the medieval fantasy series.

"I've played all kinds of roles [in my career] and of course the ones that stick out are the most successful [ones], and right now that is Game of Thrones," he said, adding that he loves his character for its well-written role.

When asked about his character's dubious love affair with his sister, Lannister laughed it off by admitting that "the incest thing is, of course, weird".

"But the way I see it… he fell in love with this girl who just happens to be his sister. [And] I can relate to falling in love with someone," he added.

In the three-minute long interview, Coster-Waldau also teased about what audiences can look forward to in the upcoming season of the adventure-drama.

"There's a scene that was shot that is one of my most favourite scene ever in any job," he confessed. "Episode 7 is my favorite episode, I can say that much."
