GAME of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays the formidable Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, has tied the knot.
At 6’9, the “World’s Strongest Man” actor, 29, towers over his new wife, Kelsey Henson, who stands at just 5’2.
Björnsson tied the knot with Henson in his native Iceland over the weekend, and took to Instagram shortly afterwards to share the happy news.
“It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife,” he wrote alongside a photo of the pair on their wedding day.
“I get to hold this beautiful woman through thick and thin for the rest of our lives! I’m so excited for all of the future adventures we will tackle side by side. #justmarried.”
Henson also shared a gushing tribute on Instagram to her new husband.
Looking forward to pulling this big guy around for the rest of my life. ♥️ . @thorbjornsson I love you now and forever and promise to stand by your side through all that life throws at us. I love you baby! 👰🏼🤵🏼 . . @weddingiceland . #married #justmarried #wife #husband #wifelife #ballandchain #together #forever #partners #soulmate #bestfriend #goals #love #happy #happiness #smiles #beautiful #family #secret #intimatewedding #wedding #photography #weddingphotography #weddingphoto #iceland #lava #fields #viking #canadian

Björnsson and Henson are believed to have met last year in a bar in Canada, where Henson was working as a waitress, after she approached him to ask for a picture.
Björnsson’s fame skyrocketed after he first began appearing in Game of Thrones during season four — and he’s already hinted that he’ll return for the final season.
Earlier this year, Björnsson was asked by a fan on Instagram which was his “favourite GoT scene to be in.”
According to winteriscoming.net, the actor replied: “It happens in season 8 … so I can’t speak about it.”
The eighth and final season will reportedly air sometime in the first half of next year.
