He was the giant star of the highest rated episode of TV ever, but the actor behind fan favourite Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun (say that after three beers) has actually popped up throughout Game of Thrones in many different guises; as well as appearing in some other huge films.

Ian Whyte, the actor in question, is 7 ft 1, which has made him the go-to guy for directors looking for a man to play a giant. Here are some of his other notable roles.

He was also a short-lived version of Ser Gregor Clegane in season two
