Born November 26, 1988; the 30-year-old actually began his career in sports. He is a strongman competitor, and former professional basketball player. He began his career playing with the FSU Selfoss professional basketball team. Standing at 2.06m, he played for a series of Icelandic top-flight sides as a centre. However at age 20 in 2008, he suffered a knee injury –which led him to pursue his athletic career in strongman competitions, achieving great success.

He was named Iceland’s Strongest Man five years in a row and has also been named Europe’s Strongest Man twice. In 2015, he beat a 1000-year-old record at the World’s Strongest Viking competition for carrying a 1,433 pound log five steps.

He joined the cast of Game of Thrones in 2013 for his first acting role and has now played The Mountain –the massive killing machine, for five seasons.
