Game Of Thrones Actor/Bear Magnet Kristian Nairn Comes Out On Fan Site

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 9.45.56 AMIn an interview posted on Game of Thrones fan site WinterIsComing, actor Kristian Nairn revealed that he’s gay. And a pot of honey among bears.

When asked about his…ahem…furrier fan base who holds his portrayal of Hodor, the brawny protector of mini-prince Bran Stark, in especially high esteem, Nairn had this to say:

“Well, in all honesty, when you talk about “the gay community,” you are talking about MY community, haha. I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99% or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all! Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that.”


“It’s a very small part of who I am on the whole, but nonetheless, in this day and age, it’s important to stand up and be counted. I have and always will stand my ground.”

The interview also discussed Nairn’s DJ’ing side, piggyback rides and, of course, the much-anticipated fourth season of GoT.

    I believe you mean “bear magnet” not “bear magnate.” He’s not a titan among the bear elite, is he???

  • redcarpet

    If he wasn’t before he is now CityBoy300.

    Nice to have some bear representation on TV for once.

  • sfbeast

    He might not have many lines to memorize …… “Hodor !!” …… But how great is that. Nice remark about being out and proud.

  • boring

    He also has a comically oversized crank. Like, there’s nothing sexual about it, it’s so big it stops being a penis and starts being an object.

    In a promo piece for the 4th season, he said he was wearing a prosthetic piece. It was an answer to a question about what the actors have found sort of embarrassing to do while filming the show.

    @AntBee: Ahahaha, I didn’t know that. Place that fucker right next to the Dirk Diggler piece for the most shameful Hall of Fame ever assembled.
