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.

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:

http://icelandreview.com/stuff/ask-ir/2011/02/08/what-average-height-icelander

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.

Super cool video!  Thanks!

Thor isn't an Icelandic name, right? It's Nordic.

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

This is a good documentary about The Giants of Iceland:

Thor Bjornsson (The Mountain) is in it.

Interesting film.

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

The Mountain is now officially Europe's strongest man.
