Conan Stevens, best known for playing Ser Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain in HBO’s Game of Thrones, is all set to join the cast of local TV show — Encantadia; as confirmed by Nelson Canlas on 24 Oras. Though details of Stevens’ character on Encantadia are still being kept under wraps, the former Game of Thrones actor offered a few insights as to what we can expect by saying that he usually gets typecast into roles due to his physique.
Most of you are probably saying: “Doesn’t strong man Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson play The Mountain?” Yes, he does. But the huge, hulk of a man that you saw fight “The Viper” Oberyn Martell, didn’t take over the role until Season 4 of the series. Conan Stevens was the “original” — if we can call it that — Gregor Clegane in the first season of Game of Thrones, where The Mountain was one of the combatants during a tournament held in Ned Stark’s honor for being appointed Hand of the King.
