Gainz of Thrones – Buffest Game of Thrones Actors
So Season 7 of Game of Thrones is currently well underway, and I’m completely hooked. In my excitement for this series I wanted to create a unique top lists video, and I decided to do this with my usual fitness theme. So I chose the top buffest actors in the show, which my wife named Gainz of Thrones!
Below is my Gainz of Thrones video:
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – Gregor Clegane/The Mountain
First on the list has to be World Strongman competitor Thor Bjornsson, who plays Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain. Thor is 6’9” tall, and is 397 lbs! Fully armoured up he strikes an intimidating form, and often dwarfs the other members of the cast. Thor obviously trains like a Strongman, and Peter Dinklage shared a great story about how he was mesmerised watching Thor eat seven chickens in a single sitting.
Jason Momoa – Khal Drogo
Jason Momoa played Dothraki Warlord Khal Drogo. Jason is 6’4” and weighed 214 lbs for his part in the show, and is known for his brutal training sessions to get into top shape. However Jason is now somewhat of a training and nutrition veteran, following a number of physical roles such including Conan the Barbarian.
Rory McCann – Sandor Clegane/The Hound
Rory McCann plays the role of Sandor Clegane aka The Hound, brother to The Mountain. Rory is 6’6” inches tall and weighs 240 lbs. Although he’s always in his armour, Rory is great shape. The Scottish actor even used to be the face of Scottish Oats, complete with vest and kilt!
Joseph Gatt – Thenn Warg
Joseph Gatt played a Warg in the Thenn tribe. The Thenn are a tribe of free folk known for ritual self sacrifice and cannibalism. Gatt is perhaps best known as the motion capture performer and likeness for ‘Kratos’ from the acclaimed “God Of War” video game franchise. Joseph is 6’1” and weighs 220 lbs.
Conan Stevens – Gregor Clegane/The Mountain
In the first season of Game of Thrones, Gregor Clegane aka the Mountain was originally played by Conan Stevens, however he left the show to play a role in The Hobbit movie. Stevens was well received due to his likeness to The Hound, as well as the fact he is 7’1” and a lean 320 lbs!
Kit Harrington – Jon Snow
Finally we have Kit Harrington playing the role of Jon Snow. Compared to some of the monsters of the show he is tiny at 5’8” and weighing in at around 169 lbs. However Kit is in awesome shape, you’re just unlikely to see it in the show as he’s always wrapped up warm in the frozen north. He has recently been adding size to his physique after getting super lean for his role in Pompeii.
So that’s my top list of buffest characters from the Game of Thrones. Let me know if there is someone you think I’ve missed or should be on the list, and as always if you like this video, don’t forget to hit that thumbs up button and subscribe for more videos!
