The actor who plays the gentle giant Hador in the Game Of Thrones series has come out as gay in an interview on the Game of Thrones fan site winteriscoming.net.
Asked if he was aware of his popularity in the gay “bear” community, the 38-year-old Kristian Nairn said, “Well, in all honesty, when you talk about ‘the gay community’, you are talking about my community (laughs). 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 percent or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all,” he said.
Nairn has never tried to hide his sexuality and has always hoped to be asked in an interview.
“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, because it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail.”
