For those of you who are hooked on ‘Game Of Thrones’, you’ll be familiar with the peasent slayer, horse beheading beast that is dubbed ‘The Mountain’! The actor is Hafthor Bjornsson whose roots are in competitive weightlifting back in his home country of Iceland. Bjornsson is 6’9’’ and weighs in at around 190kg, that’s 419lbs…this makes for a pretty imposing man. Last year the Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay recognised this prompting him to pursue the giant man as a player for his team. Albeit this never came to fruition, hence we’re seeing this man on the TV every Monday on the ‘Game Of Thrones’!
