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.
