Watch Game of Thrones' latest addition perform incredible feats of strength
When you hear the nickname “the Mountain” thrown around, you really hope that it’s an ironic one, especially if he’s coming after you. Sadly, for some around Westoros, that nickname is apt as these tests of strength showcase.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, or Hafthor Bjornsson, is the third actor to fill the massive shoes of the Mountain and is a fitting choice for the role. The 25-year-old stands at 6’9” and weighs more than 180kg. If that wasn’t enough in itself, he takes part in the World’s Strongest Man competition and has set world records for some incredible tests of strength.

His Reddit AMA made him seem like a nice guy, but if you happen to get on the wrong side of him it looks like he’s perfectly capable of breaking you in half or throwing you some distance.

Expect to see more of Hafthor as this season of Game of Thrones unfolds.
