The Mountain from Game of Thrones is Scary Even Without a Huge Sword

If you don’t watch Game of Thrones, well, props to you for somehow avoiding one of the hottest shows of the past few years that everyone talks about. If you are like the rest of us, you watch Game of Thrones and have read all of the A Song of Ice and Fire books by George R.R. Martin. It’s okay, even my wife has read all of them and seen all of the seasons at least twice through. It’s just that kind of thing; addicting.

So, if you know Game of Thrones, you know that they had to find a new actor to play The Mountain, Gregor Clegane, for the last season. The guy that they picked? Well, he’s freaking HUGE. His name is Hafthhor Bjornsson and he’s 6’7” and 418lbs. That is a monster, monster of a man and the scene he is perhaps best known for is one of brutality that I won’t spoil for you if you’ve yet to catch up. I can assure you that it is brutal, though.

This is a video of him sparring in a Boxing ring and dear god is this man scary as hell.
