'What happens in Sibera stays in Siberia...unless it is covered by The Siberian Times'

'Father my babies' plea from women to Harry Potter lookalike 

By The Siberian Times reporter

Siberian supermarket worker's images went viral after he was spotted on Instagram, and now he's in big demand.

'All this is very funny, but I still do not quite understand what's going on.' Picture here and below: Nikolay Posled

Nikolay Posled, 23, from Krasnoyarsk, is popular on social media since his pictures were revealed, showing him looking 'more like Harry Potter than Daniel Radcliffe'.

'There are girls. They ask me if they can have a child from me,' he said. 'They're obviously Harry Potter fans. All this is very funny, but I still do not quite understand what's going on. For me, it's all new. Specifically, that everyone suddenly needs something from me. '

It is not clear what his girlfriend thinks of the interest in him from other women. But he has had some less welcome attention.

'In social media I get many messages. Some 'funny guys' write rubbish, threaten me, like promise to kill or something,' he said.

It was five years ago when his eyesight began to deteriorate that he bought glasses, and people started noticing the similarity with Harry Potter.

Tattoo

Nikolay also made a tattoo on his arm - a deer, but he claims it is not like Harry Potter's Patronus. 

He is often stopped in the street or asked to pose for pictures.

'Until the media gave me publicity, it did not interfere in my life in any way,' he said. 'Now I feel uncomfortable. I'm not an actor and I did nothing outstanding. 

'I owe such popularity only to nature. I did nothing to become popular, and never specifically imitated him. I do not have idols.' In charge of candies at a Krasnoyarsk supermarket, he promised: 'I will never seek to meet Radcliffe, but it might happen by chance.'

Nikolay also made a tattoo on his arm - a deer, but he claims it is not like Harry Potter's Patronus. 'It's just a deer in a forest,' he said.

But he has read all the Harry Potter books - and still rereads them. But he is not much good when it comes to the wizardry of JK Rowling's character. 'I don't have the powers,' he said.
