The staple Game of Thrones character bolsters an absolutely jaw-dropping physique, being made of pure muscle and standing at 6ft9. It's almost as if Icelandic athlete turned actor Hafþór Júlíus "Thor" Björnsson was born to play the role.


Although Thor was always in shape, he definitely wasn't always of the size he is today. Here are some photos that trace the ex-basketball player's physical transformation, evolving from The Hill to The Mountain.

Thor's achievements show us that nothing is insurmountable.
