The Mountain height weight size how big?! Cersei for scale! Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson weighs 419 pounds, says Reddit AMA.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Game of Thrones!
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson weighs 400 pounds. His personal records:
- Squat – 350 kg (794 lbs.) raw
- Bench press – 230 kg (507 lbs.) raw
- Strongman Deadlift – 420 kg (924 lbs.) raw with wrist straps
- Loglift – 192.5 kg (424 lbs.)
So a 25 year old will play the older brother to a 44 year old, I guess they can work their TV magic to accomplish that!
He is the tallest strongman ever from Iceland, Janill. ICELAND.
Yes, again, friggin Iceland is dealing it ;) Are these people some king of superior race? or what! lol
The Mountain looks a lot older than 25.
Ages are strange in Westeros anyway.
Margaery is played by a 32 year old and Tommen, not even close.
Fun fact, out of all the actors that played the mountain, this guy is the shortest.
Compare with Mountain #1:
The Faces of The Mountain:
SEASON ONE Portrayed by Conan Stevens
SEASON TWO Portrayed by Ian Whyte
SEASON FOUR Portrayed by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson
That's a lot of tattoos to cover up ;)
Holy smokes, yeah. I just noticed no tattoos in the pictures at the top and bottom of this page. Wow!!
This article is really interesting about his strong man career:
He once threw a washing machine 15 feet!
Oberyn and the Mountain off camera:
Sizes of first and third Mountains plus the Hound: 6'9", 7'1", and 6'6"...
The Mountain dead lifts 994 pounds:
I cannot even IMAGINE the amount of protein that kid had to eat to become the Mountain. Maybe like... 10 whole cows!?!?
OMG, he was so skinny!
Janill, is there something that happens to Icelandic people that makes them become HUGE?
I think it's just him, not sure how big the general population is. Tallest population I think is Dutch, at 6' 1" for males.
Iceland was not measured.
Here is the question asked in a Wiki:
180.6 centimeters (5' 9") Icelandic men
Dutch *are* the tallest.
I just love that Iceland is known as The Land of Ice and Fire.
Iceland... Is Westeros???
Thank you for those stats, Janill.
Skip to the bottom of this page for a cool video on Icelandic giants.
According to his Reddit AMA, he listens to metal while training and his cardio regimen is "sex."
Super cool video! Thanks!
Thor isn't an Icelandic name, right? It's Nordic.
He's 6'9, 419 pounds. Age 25:
At Game of Thrones episode 4.07 we're in the year 300AC.
Oberyn born in 258AC - 42 years old
Tyrion born in 274AC - 26 years old
Ser Gregor: either born in 265AC or 266AC, wiki isn't certain so he's 34-35.
The Hound: 270AC - 271AC so he's 30

I thought so too! Iceland is even more fascinating than we realized.
