Everything you don't know about The Mountain
When Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane crushed Oberyn Martell's skull like a watermelon in one of the most gruesome Game of Thrones deaths to date, the character went down in pop culture history. From that shocking moment, fans of HBO's hit fantasy series have been dying to know more about Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the 6-foot-9-inch, 400-pound Icelandic strongman who has been portraying The Mountain since season 4 of the show. It probably won't surprise you to learn that his workout routine would leave most mortal men needing weeks of recovery time, but there's much more to Björnsson — or Thor to his friends and family — than just squats and dead lifts. Here's everything you probably didn't know about The Mountain That Rides.
