SEE IT: ‘Game of Thrones’ star Hafthor ‘Mountain’ Bjornsson lifts Ed Sheeran over his head


Hafthor Bjornsson is seen as "Game of Thrones" character The Mountain.

Ed Sheeran got a much-needed pick-me-up in Iceland from an old pal.

The 28-year-old singer-actor, who was performing in Reykjavik last weekend as part of his two-year-long Divide Tour, got a big lift from “Game of Thrones” strongman Hafthor Bjornsson, aka Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane.

Bjornsson posted a video of himself lifting Sheeran, who appeared in a cameo role during the seventh season of the HBO drama.

“He asked for it. Luckily I didn’t drop him,” The Mountain captioned the Instagram video. “He has to work tonight.”

Sheeran appeared briefly as a Lannister soldier singing to his comrades in the episode “Dragonstone."

Bjornsson had no trouble hoisting the 5-foot-8, 180-pound Sheeran into the air and holding him over his head for a few seconds.

Competitively, the Icelandic-born athlete has been able to bench-press 551 pounds and dead-lift 904 pounds, so lifting Sheeran, unsurprisingly, was anything but a herculean task.

Sheeran isn’t the only “Game of Thrones” actor to get the human barbell treatment from The Mountain.

“You did this to me at that wrap party in Spain, remember? LOL” responded actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Missandei, Daenerys’ trusted counselor.

Indeed, Bjornsson, 30, did remember, responding, “Yes, great times.”

The 6-foot-9, 400-pound muscleman claimed the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2018 after finishing as the runner-up the prior two years. He also snagged a prominent role as Mongkut in the 2018 martial arts thriller “Kickboxer: Retaliation,” which co-starred Jean-Claude Van Damme.
