You Won’t Recognise Game Of Throne’s Hodor In Real Life

Turns out, 40-year-old actor Kristoan Nairn is a house DJ! Ah-mazing...

It’s not unusual for Game Of Thrones actors to look a little different to their on-screen characters.

Jon Snow is a little less hairy in real life. Daenerys Targaryen isn’t even blonde. And Yara Greyjoy pretty much looks like a totally different person.

But there’s one GOT actor that’s totally blowing our MINDS. Hodor, we’re looking at you.

The Irish actor has been a house DJ for 16 years

He might be a simple-minded oversized giant on the show, but in real life, actor Kristoan Nairn is only a super cool, fully-fledged DJ.

Yep, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we caught sight of Hodor spinning some tunes on the dancefloor at the Comic Con after-parties at the weekend. Because, look what a dude he is!

And here’s a fun fact for you – the 40-year-old Irishman was actually a house DJ for 16 years before he joined HBO’s biggest ever fantasy drama. So he really knows his way around that DJ booth.

Another GOT actress that recently hit the headlines was Gemma Whelan, who plays iron born badass Yara Greyjoy, due to the actress admitting that she barely gets recognised in public.

‘People don’t normally recognise me”, she said on Good Morning Britain. ‘It is happening a bit more now because I’ve had more to do this season.’
