Game of Thrones Casts Yet Another Actor as The Mountain

Posted by at 9:45 am on September 4, 2013

Game of Thrones MountainGame of Thrones has found a suitable new actor play The Mountain, after some problems have arisen for other actors trying to play him thus far.

His name is Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, and he looks pretty much like a mountain, based on his size. The guy is massive, and it is hard not to imagine finding him physically intimidating, which works really well to only the further the feelings they already get from him, seeing as to how his character is referred to as a mountain.

Hafbor won the third strongest man in the Universe last year, so this guy really is a powerhouse, which will work incredibly well considering what is expected out of the casting.

The show had two other The Mountains before this one. First there was Conan Stevens, who backed out because of some “scheduling problems”, and then Ian Whyte left because he claimed he could not relate to the character. So now we have Hafbor, and judging from the looks of things, we may finally have an actual The Mountain here. A character as known for being physically imposing as he is anything else.
