The Mountain is heading to Dublin later this month

Best not spill his pint, we imagine.

Yes, that’s right, The Mountain aka Gregor Clegane aka Franken-Gregor aka The World’s Strongest Man aka his actual name Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson will be in Dublin later this month as part of the Dublin Comic Con.

When he’s not popping the heads of his enemies or just eternally avoiding fighting his brother The Hound (just get on with it already!), Björnsson is constantly winning World’s Strongest Man competitions, like this time he pulled an entire double decker bus just for the heck of it.

Anyways, should you want to meet him, he’ll be in the Dublin Convention Centre on Sat 12 and Sun 13 Aug, and full details of that can be found right here.

And he is far from the only famous face who will be in attendance, as you can also expect to see Marina Sirtis (aka Counsellor Troi from Star Trek: The Next Generation), Kevin Conroy (aka Batman in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham Trilogy of video-games), Michael Rosenbaum (aka Lex Luthor in Smallville), Joe Pantoliano (from the likes of The Matrix, Memento, The Goonies, The Sopranos, The Fugitive, etc.) and loads more besides.

Full details of what else you can find happening at this year’s Dublin Comic Con can be found on their official website.
