The Mountain, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson gifts free vodka and flowers to women in new video

Game of Thrones has a lot of characters, of which, some really stand out because of their strengths. Now, characters like Varys, and Littlefinger, might stand out because of their wits, but characters like The Mountain, stand out for having physical strength. The Mountain is shown to be a ruthless character in the series, but Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the actor who plays him in the series, is quite the opposite in nature. Proof? Hafþór gifted vodka and flowers to women, recently. Read on!

On the eve of Iceland’s National Women’s Day, Hafþór went to the the Kringlan mall in Iceland, to distribute small bottles of his own brand, Icelandic Mountain Vodka, and flowers to women of all ages. The International Women’s Day is being celebrated today but it’s important to remember that Iceland celebrates National Women’s day as well and it’s on 19th Feb, as mentioned in the video. Check the video out, below :

It’s no surprise that the women Hafþór approached seemed to appreciate the gesture. He is obviously quite well known, and loved and fans did not only accept the gifts, but also stopped to hug him, and take pictures with him.

To meet the star of one of your favorite TV series, and have him offer you free booze and a flower sounds something like a dream come true. The vodka apparently isn’t too bad, either. In their report, Supercall said that they named Icelandic Mountain Vodka one of the best new vodkas of 2016, and apparently is it quite a tasty one.

The last we saw of The Mountain, he was brutally murdering Septa Unella on Cersei’s command. He later did an ad campaign with the actress who played her in the series. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is all set to return as The Mountain in Season 7, when it returns in summer this year, most probably in July.

What do you think about Hafþór’s sweet gesture? Talk to us in the comments, below!

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn’t burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn't burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones series finale was hated by the fandom to a degree where it triggered millions of people into signing a petition to remake the final season of the show. However, if there was one thing that everybody liked, it was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. Most of the fandom agreed that this was a great choice, but now it seems as though that might not have been intentional like we had thought. Read on!

Now, as you might know, Emmy nominated scripts are made available online, and with the series finale of Game of Thrones, titled “The Iron Throne” getting nominated, the script followed soon. What we saw in the show was Drogon burning the throne down, and the general interpretation was that Drogon was mad at the throne for being the real reason behind Daenerys’ death, and that Drogon wanted to break the wheel like his mother always wanted. However, the script has a different version of how it went down:

“Drogon wants to burn the world, but he will not kill Jon. He breathes fire on the back wall, blasting down what remains of the great red blocks of stone. We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration.”

Well, that’s awkward. The very reason why everybody liked the melting was that they assumed it was because Drogon was smart enough to see that it was the throne’s fault. Now, this looks like just another reason for the fans to hate the showrunners and writers/directors of the finale, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the meantime, the PDF of the script has been locked down on the Emmy website, requiring a login to be able to access.

What do you guys think about this reason? Would you have preferred it to be intentional? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa celebrated his 40th birthday with a 168-pound Guinness and whiskey cake

If there’s one Game of Thrones star that knows how to party, it’s Jason Momoa. The actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, recently celebrated his 40th birthday at a surprise party thrown for him by his friends. Apparently, the party involved a giant 168-pound cake made out of Guinness and whiskey! Read on.

We had reported about the mini-reunion that Momoa had with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke, who was present at the party. Now, further details have been revealed, and it looks like the cake was the star of the party, reports INSIDER.

Made by UK-based baker Aggy Dadan of Edible By Aggy, the cake was infused with Guinness and whiskey and took a week to make. It was served on a giant sugar surfboard, with a wave on one side and a mountain on the other, two things Momoa is known to love. It also featured mini-figurines of Momoa, shown climbing the mountain and playing the guitar while surfing on the wave. Check out the pictures:

Dagan said:

“I was thinking, what could be better than putting the whole thing on a sugar surfboard. We incorporated a little mini pint of Guinness, because he loves Guinness, and a little box of donuts for his best friend [Mada Abdelhamid], who calls himself ‘Donut Man.’

Jason is a big family man, so [Abdelhamid] wanted to include things that represented that in the cake. They left it pretty much up to me, which I love. I love when people let me use my creativity.”

Dagan had previously made a 3/4 scale Aquaman bust cake for Momoa for the premiere of the film, and Momoa seems to have stuck with her.
