PROVING HIS MIGHT
“The Mountain” is getting a chance to prove his might. Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson plays the feared guard of Queen Cersei Lannister in the “Game of Thrones” series and today he’ll be competing in the annual New Hampshire Highland Games and Festival for the third time.
The 6-foot-9, 400-pound Bjornsson will be lifting heavy stones over his head and throwing a 56-pound weight with an attached handle over a horizontal bar with one hand. The Icelandic actor is also planning to lift a car in a strength demonstration event.
The 28-year-old says he had no idea how much “Game of Thrones” would change his life. He’s much busier now, and people recognize him often. The show recently wrapped up its seventh season.
