Oh, sure, there are some actors and actresses who look exactly like their TV alter egos. (Hi, Zooey Deschanel!)

Dying to try out a complicated Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen braid or get that flowy Russian spy mane that Keri Russell sports in The Americans? Whether you're a vintage maven like Megan Draper on Mad Men or a modern New Girl, YouTube has you covered.

Warning: Many spoilers ahead. After last week's rather sleepy and depressing episode, Game of Thrones really upped the ante this week.

Obsessed? So are we.
