Wun Wun wasn't Whyte's first turn on GoT. He also appeared as Ser Gregor Clegane, also known as The Mountain, in Season 2.

Whyte replaced Conan Stevens as Clegane in the second season. He was later replaced by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, and went on to portray Wun Wun. He's also played a White Walker in Seasons 1 and 2 and was Dongo the giant in Seasons 3 and 4.
