Sölvi Fannar

Agent for 'The Mountain' (Game of Thrones)
Athlete, Actor and Poet

Sölvi Fannar is an actor, model, health professional, writer, poet, multi-athlete, musician and artist, dubbed a 'Renaissance Man' and 'Iceland's Bruce Lee.'


Born in Iceland but now based in London, his first taste of acting came in a feature film, as a singer in a children’s choir at the age of 12. After this, there was no turning back.


Following his studies at the legendary Icelandic Film School, Sölvi has been involved in film, TV and media projects worldwide and is now the ‘agent’ for Icelandic actor and current World’s Strongest Man, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, also known as Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane in 'Game of Thrones.'


Scheduled to appear alongside Stephen Fry and Anna Friel in the upcoming British film, 'Margery Booth: The Spy in the Eagle's Nest,' his two most recent films are 'Three Dots and a Dash' (as Boris Popov) and 'Operation Ragnarok' (as leader of a Viking squad).


In 2014, he was interviewed by Vice for The Giants of Iceland; he is also the inventor of ‘kiss-up’!
