Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane in “Game of Thrones,” has shared a new picture of him holding the massive sword he uses in season 7. Meanwhile, costume designer Michael Clapton revealed in a recent interview that the Targaryen red will slowly start creeping into the cloths of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke).

Ever since The Mountain fought with Oberyn Martel (Pedro Pascal), the former hasn’t had opportunity to use his sword in battle. That may change this year, as the character was seen unsheathing his sword in a video released by HBO.

Björnsson has now shared a photo of him holding the massive sword, beautiful scenery in the background. The actor invited his fans to caption the picture (see below),

Meanwhile, costume designer Clapton spoke with Insider about the costume of Daenerys this year. The Mother of Dragons moved from the sandy deserts in Essos to the shores of Westeros. Clapton explained that the character will be covered up more, and the design takes into account that she is the head of the Unsullied army.

Clapton pointed out that as the story enters the final phase, the women on the show are getting darker costumes, which seem to be mono-chromed. However, she teased that there are hints of red in Danny’s costume. The designer said that she has been asked by fans why she can’t make things more obvious in the costume. Clapton explained that this is the “joy” of the show; viewers will have to “search things out.”

Daenerys will start to tap into her Targaryen heritage this season. The designer confirmed that red will start “creeping” into her dresses in “Game of Thrones” season 7. There is symbolism in her costume, and the dress she wears this year has to portray strength and authority.
