Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal: Oberyn's Challenge Is a "F--- You" to the Lannisters

Peter Dinklage, Pedro Pascal

Trust a Dornishman to get excited by impossible odds.

On Sunday's Game of Thrones (9/8c, HB), Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) will enter into trial by combat against Gregor Clegane, who is nicknamed The Mountain for his ridiculously vast size. The series cast massive Icelandic strongman Hafthor Bjornsson to dwarf his onscreen competitor. "He's nearly a foot taller than me. He's 6-foot-9; I'm 5-foot-11," Pascal tells TVGuide.com. "I think he's nearly three times my weight. He's 420 pounds of muscle. It felt like I was with a giant. And then put him in the armor, and his sword alone was exactly my height. It was incredibly intimidating but also really delightful because I think that the character Oberyn really relishes that kind of challenge."
