In an interview with a Game of Thrones fansite, actor Kristian Nairn—who plays simpleminded servent Hodor—came out of the closet.
When asked about his "extensive bear following," Nairn was far from tight-lipped:
"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. 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!"
Way to go(dor)!
