This ’70s throwback photo of the series’s author has people noticing a similarity to the star of the hit show.

And throughout it’s run, a number of stars have come and gone. Usually in a fiery, bloody mess.

One is George RR Martin, the world-renowned author of the original Song of Ice and Fire series on which the show is based.

Who is world-renowned for his rugged masculinity, knowing absolutely nothing, and…

It is true, his butt fits the golden ratio — this is how good looking he is.

Whereas George RR Martin is an extremely talented author

He has a golden brain, okay? But what if we told you that these two have way more in common looks-wise than you’d think?
