I doubt anyone’s ever looked at The Mountain of Game of Thrones and thought, “Oh, I’m sure he can’t be that strong.” I know I certainly haven’t. I mean, the dude is 6’9”, just shy of 400 pounds, and can wield a sword that may be taller than me.
But he’s pretty damn gnarly in real life too. Most recently, the strongman-actor, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, spent his downtime pulling a 17-ton big rig in Iceland like it was no big (rig) deal.
And apparently Björnsson’s little pup Asterix can too. What a duo! I hope they fight crime at night.
