The Mountain From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Admits The Weird Things Fans Ask Him To Do

The Mountain From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Admits The Weird Things Fans Ask Him To Do
Updated 9 months ago

Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson plays The Mountain, one of Westeros' most frightening warriors in HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. If you see him on the street, he's not hard to recognize — he's the man twice as big as everyone else, lifting a full-sized couch with one arm while holding a train back with the other.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Björnsson revealed that playing the part comes with one unfortunate caveat:

Do they ever make requests of you?
I get a lot of requests fans asking if I want to squeeze their eyes. That’s very popular. Or pick them up over head. But the most popular to squeeze their eyes out.

Fans have another common request:

Ah, like The Mountain did do Prince Oberyn. So do you do it?
I don’t lift anyone. Usually just girls. I have had to say no because if I’m going to lift one person then so many others are going to ask to be lifted too. If it’s just one person, okay, but it’s crowded then I know others are going to ask. You have to try to be fair to everyone you know.

While they had his ear, EW also asked Björnsson about everyone's favorite sibling spat: Cleganebowl. Many fans have long seen this battle between the two Cleganes (the Hound and the Mountain) as inevitable.

What does the Mountain think?

Do you think The Mountain will ever fight The Hound? 
That’s definitely something I would like to see. And for most of the fans, it’s something they’re all waiting for. It looks like it’s going to go that way, but who knows?

He also thinks he knows how it would end:

How do you think that fight would end?
I haven’t seen it yet in my head how I would kill him, but somehow I would smash his head or kill him like that. I think the fight would be quick rather than something long. I think people would be expecting a big fight but I would finish him really fast. It would be a surprise to people.
So you think The Mountain would win then?
100 percent.

Though most people are rooting for the Hound in any possible version of the Cleganebowl, fans are desperate for the event to happen whatever the outcome:

The season finale all but confirmed the battle is on the horizon:

Of course, if you want to watch it, you'll need eyes, so please respect Björnsson's personal space and stop asking him to squeeze your face. He deserves a little deference.

The Mountain's future on the show is looking a bit bleak:

Will The Mountain survive Game of Thrones?
That’s a good question. I don’t know. To be honest with you, I think I will die at some point. I would like to live. I think it’s pretty obvious I’m going to die in a fight.
