Kristian Nairn (Hodor) Spotlight PanelKristian Nairn (Hodor) Spotlight Panel

When I first started watching Game of Thrones I hadn’t read the books yet and I had no idea that a mentally impaired character who only said one word, “Hodor”, would become such an emotional storyline for this series mostly involving intrigue and war.

At Baltimore Comic-Con’s spotlight panel we were able to meet Kristian Nairn, the actor  behind Hodor. At the panel he spoke about his love of World of Warcraft, his time on the set with the actor who plays Bran, learning of the world’s reaction to his big episode in season 6, and being involved in the music scene.
