During an appearance on the Daily Show last night, Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion in Game of Thrones, shared a little behind-the-scenes action with Jon Stewart, including quite an interesting story about his monstrously-sized co-star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who portrays The Mountain. 

“We were having dinner one night in Croatia, and he ordered seven chickens. He ate seven whole roast chickens. Amazingly lovely guy, but huge.”

Björnsson is famous most recently for carrying a 1320-pound log five steps, breaking a 1000-year-old Viking weightlifting record.
