Game of Thrones' Kristian Nairn (aka Hodor) Comes Out as Gay

Game of Thrones actor Kristian Nairn has revealed that he is gay and that he has never tried hiding that fact.

The 38-year-old actor was being interviewed by GOT fansite WinterIsComing.net when asked about his character Hodor’s popularity with the gay community.

“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,” Kristian said. “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. I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, cos it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!”

“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,” he added. “So, yeah, people have been great, on the show, but I don’t see why it would be an issue.”
