Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈhafθour ˈjuːliʏs ˈpjœsːɔn]; sometimes spelled as Hafthor Julius Bjornsson; born November 26, 1988) is an Icelandic professional strongman, actor, and former professional basketball player.

The Mountain may be one of the strongest characters in Game of Thrones, but the actor who plays him can now share a similar title in reality.
Icelandic actor Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, a role that had itself already once been recast, so why all the change?
