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.
