Sharing a picture of himself carrying new Canadian wife Kelsey Henson – who is 5’2, pretty diminutive compared to her husband’s 6’9 frame – Björnsson said he was “so excited for all of the future adventures we will tackle side by side”.
Icelandic strongman Björnsson, who won the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2017, is expected to return in the last series of Game of Thrones, reprising his role as Cersei’s zombified bodyguard Gregor Clegane.
Fans are hoping he’ll enjoy a fight with burnt-faced brother Sandor ‘The Hound’, played by Rory McCann, in the so-called Cleganebowl.
“That’s definitely something I would like to see,” Björnsson previously said about the face-off. “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?”
And turns out Björnsson has an idea how he’d beat his in-show brother. “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,” he said.
“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.”
