Yes ladies and gentlemen, another GoT recast it seems!
Ironically it is a recast of a recast I complained about this very day (see previous post): Ser Gregor Clegane III !
His name is Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Icelands’s strongest man, he stands at 6’9″, is 24 years old and has no previous acting experience.

Plus, if he keeps his helm on, I miiiight just be able to imagine Gregor Clegane I in it!
Here he is, in all his glory:
