Istanbul to host actor of ‘Game of Thrones’
Actor Kristian Nairn will DJ at Garajistanbul.Northern Irish actor-DJ Kristian Nairn, who plays the character Hodor in the hit U.S. TV series “Game of Thrones,” will be in Istanbul on Dec. 27, the last Saturday night of the year.
To be hosted by the Istanbul Blue Night, Nairn will meet the audience at Garajistanbul with his “Rave of Thrones,” a series of themed dance parties for diehard fans of the most illegally downloaded TV series of all time. The parties, which have been performed in many U.S. states, feature everything from fire-breathing dragons to “Whitewalkers.”
Nairn, who was the resident DJ at Belfast’s Kremlin club for over a decade, initially appeared as a guest star in the first season and returned in the role of Hodor for the second, third and fourth seasons. He became famous for his single-word role in the series, in which all he ever says is his name.
