A Wattpad request and my first Gregor Clegane one. I do not own Gregor, Sandor or Ned. They belong to George R.R.Martin.
Warnings: Violence, injuries and blood.
Pairings: Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane x fem!Stark reader, Sandor Clegane, Ned Stark
They say there is a way to soothe
even the most savage of beasts. But, when talking about Ser Gregor Clegane,
there seemed to be no way of calming the rage. Until he met you. There was
something about your presence that made the people around you much more tranquil
including the Mountain. You were the only one of your siblings that did not
seem to have the famous Stark temper and it rubbed off on others. The entire
city of King’s Landing would soon realize it as well.
I’ve never given much thought to the Mountain but...
…is there ANYONE who thinks he could TRULY care for someone? Like Sandor does Arya and Sansa…well, in a kind of similar way. Or is Gregor too much…well, too much a monster and such to care about anyone deeper than just lusting after them?
Weird question- but do you know why gregor was recast so many times??
The first Gregor was very well cast, but there were issues with him also filming The Hobbit at the same time. There’s rumors he wanted GoT to pay for his travel from NZ and that didn’t work for HBO, and that the actor also was unpleasant anyway, so they cut him loose.
Gregor #2 was a quick patch on the situation after they suddenly didn’t have Conan Stevens anymore. They needed a very tall actor, so they had Ian Whyte step in. Whyte usually plays creatures on GoT like White Walkers. But he wasn’t very suitable for the role- he’s quite lean and he doesn’t have the nasty Gregor demeanor. He’s apparently a very nice, professional guy, and they’ve continued to use him in other roles like Wun Wun.
When they brought the character back for season 4 and the important Viper fight, they went looking for a huge dude, and they found him, with Thor. He’s young for the role (I mean, REAL young) but physically was closer to the part than Whyte.
Where do you think Gregor Clegane dredged up the Mountain's Men from?
Well, I mean, it’s not like scoundrels, bullies, and monsters are particularly hard to find. I imagine he just found them around, and others were drawn by his dark reputation and ability to commit atrocities relatively free of consequences to sign up.
