Game Of Thrones “The Mountain” Loves His Tiny Pomeranian
Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane was arguably one of the largest beasts on the set of Game of Thrones. Since being killed a few seasons ago (Ooops, Spoiler Alert!), he has since “come back” in his next gen life, Ser Robert Strong, who fiercely protects Queen Mother Cersei Lannister.
The man behind “The Mountain” is actually actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who has taken Iceland’s title of Strongest Man for five straight years. While nothing on the show could possibly make Ser Robert Strong bat an eyelash, behind the camera it is Björnsson’s tiny little Pomeranian who melts his heart.
Asterix, Björnsson’s little pup even has his own Instagram account where he is shown posed wearing adorable outfits and looking absolutely tiny next to his enormous owner. Normal-sized dogs would look pretty small compared to Björnsson, but not surprisingly Asterix looks like a furry little bear baby in comparison!
Björnsson also holds the title to Europe’s Strongest Man for two years running with his 6’9” frame and 400+ pounds. To keep in shape, he performs incredibly feats… such as having Asterix tag along in his cardio workouts (not really, but you get the picture. And in case you don’t, here’s the picture).
