GAME OF THRONES star PETER DINKLAGE has flashbacks to his punk rock days every time he looks in a mirror - because the scar on his face came from a bloody encounter with a pogo-ing fan.
The dwarf actor reveals he was accidentally kneed in the head during a gig at fabled New York club CBGB, but he refused to leave the stage to have his gash attended to.
He recalls, "I was in a band called Whizzy for many years in New York... We played a show at CBGB, and I was jumping around onstage and got accidentally kneed in the temple.
"I was like Sid Vicious, just bleeding all over the stage. Blood was going everywhere. I just grabbed a dirty bar napkin and dabbed my head and went on with the show.
"Now I have a pretty big scar that runs from the my neck to my eyebrow."
