During season six of Game of Thrones, there was one character who remained (and remains) an imminent threat to all those around him: The Mountain.
The golden plated warrior, loyal only to the new Queen, Cersei, has constantly been a terrifying force for evil, with his new look only adding to the character’s sinister presence.
Underneath the helmet, things are just as scary. While we weren’t given a look at Ser Clegane’s mangled face during season six, a picture has since emerged of actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson in his Mountain make-up. As expected, it’s terrifying.
Recently, the Icelandic actor launched his own brand of Vodka, releasing a hilarious YouTube video alongside, playing off his Game of Thrones role.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the HBO show will film in Iceland early next year, with six primary actors apparently filming at the location. Season seven has yet to get a release date, but will likely hit the airwaves later than previous seasons.
