About the stars
Haftor Björnson (Isle of Hafþór Björnsson) – Icelandic sportsman and actor, multiple prize-winner of the competition for the title “The strongest man in the world”. Hafthor Julius Björnson was born on November 26, 1988 in Reykjavik, Iceland. The great growth of Hafthor (206 cm) in his family is the norm: his father’s height is 203 cm and his grandfather is 207 cm. Hafthor studied at Bradholt College.
He started a professional sports career in 2006 as a basketball player. He played on the spot for the Icelandic clubs “K.R. Basket Reykjavík »(2006-2007) and« FSu Selfoss basketball »(2007-2008). Since 2008, after a knee injury, he left basketball and retrained for power extreme. Three times (in 2010, 2011 and 2012) was recognized as the strongest person in Iceland.
In August 2013, was approved for the role of Grigor “Mountains” of Kligan in season 4 of the series “The Game of Thrones.”

In 2015, Björnson held a spar with Conor McGregor.
On January 31, 2015, Bjørnsson broke a 1,000-year record at the World’s Strongest Viking competition in Norway, dragging a 650-pound 10-meter log 5 steps ahead. The former record was set at the beginning of the 10th century by the Icelandic Viking Orm Storfelsson, nicknamed Orm the Strong who carried a ship’s mast of similar weight three steps before breaking his back.
But this mountain of muscles and power was powerless in front of an army of vicious and envious Internet trolls.
Numerous achievements of Haftor in the sport and success in the cinema mean little to the eternally hungry and therefore embittered beings, called trolls. Rather, they only attract unhealthy attention to him.
Any strong person has a vulnerable place, and for Haftor, his new lady of the heart, Kelsey Henson, has become one. The world learned about their relationship in September last year, and the girl quickly became a target for trolls.
The reason for the attacks is not necessary to look for, a huge difference in dimensions – is already an excuse for ridicule. From the innocuous, like “He carries you in your pocket?” And “And how do you kiss?” To those who translate and then feel ashamed ..
Under the mood, Kelsey jokes, “Well, he bends over, and I stand on my toes and stretch,” but more often he simply ignores the trolls. As for Hafthor himself, he avariciously notes – no one in real life will tell him anything in person, all infinitely brave only in Instagram and social networks.
Haftor quickly realized that this hell-army can not be defeated by ordinary forces. And … retreated. Occasionally it blocks the most torn trolls, otherwise just does not notice the boiling and less joint photos with Kelsey spreads. He is the strongest man on earth, and what have they achieved or can they achieve? That’s the same. But still it’s a shame when your beloved woman is hurt, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
