This photo that just came out today of Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell) hanging out with Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (the Mountain) is just the latest in a string of epic Instagrams from our favorite HBO show. It's heartwarming to the core that a show can be as crushingly sad and violent as Game of Thrones and yet, the actors behind the series seem to be genuinely fun-loving, warm, and friendly people. They've taken some pretty fantastic shots together over the years.

Margaery and Danaerys: Married and usurped princesses in the show, attached at the hip in real life.

Cersei and Oberyn: Manipulator and professional shit-talker in the show, nose nuzzlers in real life.

Sam, Dany, and Theon: None of them have ever met in the show, and they pose for photos in real life.

Tyrion and Robb Stark: Sons of warring houses on the show, boating buddies in real life.

Jon Snow and Danaerys: Scions of ruined houses who have never encountered each other in the show, huggers in real life.

Theon and Robb Stark: Asshole traitor to the other's cause in the show, funny-face-makers in real life.

Jaime Lannister and Robb Stark: Bitter firstborn-son battlefield rivals in the show, arm in arm in real life.

Brienne, Loras, Cersei, Oberyn, and Ellaria Sand: Not at all ever this close on the show (with the exception of the last two), dogpiled in real life. (Ed. note: Thanks to a couple of commenters below for confirming it was Ellaria under that hair!)

"Hodor!" photographed by Arya: Barely know each other on the show, DJ and fan in real life.

Brienne, photographed by Oberyn: Would never go on vacation together on the show.

George R.R. Martin and Oberyn: One killed the other guy on the show, drinking buddies in real life.

Margaery, Sansa, Arya, and Oberyn: Have hardly ever met on the show, photoboothing in real life.

Loras and Mace Tyrell, Jon Snow, Jaime Lannister: Haven't had any scenes together in ages on the show, boozers in real life. (Ed. note: Thanks to commenter Victoria Birch for noting that that's Mace.)

Loras and Arya: Have had zero scenes together on the show, stick out their tongues in real life.

Cersei and Tywin Lannister: More of the same.

And Walder Frey: Let's be honest, he's got it down pat.
