Back in 2014, Kristian Nairn, the actor who played Hodor on Game of Thrones, came out to the public as gay. Nairn told a Game of Thrones fan site, “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, ’cause it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail.”

Kristian is an open book as far as he’s concerned.
