Wanna get a good look at one of Game of Thrones’ most dangerous killers? We've just gotten our first peek at the third actor to don the mantle of Ser Gregor Clegane, aka The Mountain That Rides.

Actor Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson, following in the larger-than-life footsteps left by Conan Stevens, who played him back in season one, and Ian Whyte, who played him in season two, has Instagrammed a pic of himself in full costume but sans helmet.

Have a look:

Note that he’s holding his broadsword there, so don’t be fooled by his smile! Fans of George R.R. Martin’s saga A Song of Ice and Fire will no doubt be looking forward to a certain EPIC fight between him and a brand-new character in the upcoming fourth season. We’re pretty sure he'll bring it.

How do you like Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson’s look as the new Mountain?
