Kristian Nairn is not out of work after the death of his character Hodor in Game of Thrones Season 6. Not all of the fans of the HBO series are aware that the Northern Irish actor also has a musical side although he is neither a singer nor a band member.
Nairn used to be the resident DJ of a gay club called Kremlin in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where most of the Game of Thrones Season 6 were filmed. From 2013 to 2014, the actor went on a tour called Rave of Thrones in the United States.
In 2014, the actor came out as gay saying when people talk about the gay community, they are talking about his community. He pointed out that his sexuality is a very small part of who he is on the whole.
Being busy as a progressive DJ after the death of Hodor does not mean that Nairn is saying goodbye to his acting career. In fact, he is set to star in two fantasy films that will hit theaters before 2017.
These two films are Mythica: The Godslayer and Victrix. The former is written by Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin and directed by John Lyde while the latter is written by Tom Stevens and directed by Vic Armstrong.
In Mythica: The Godslayer, Nairn plays the character Tek. The film also stars Matthew Mercer as Szorlok, Melanie Stone as Marek, Nicola Posener as Teela/Ana Sett, Adam Johnson as Thane and Jake Stormoen as Dagen, among others.
Victrix marks Nairn’s reunion with his former Game of Thrones co-star Max Sydow, who played the Three-Eyed Raven in the HBO series. In the film, Nairn plays Finbar while Sydow plays Abbot Lucan.
