While the death of Hodor, one of the beloved characters in the hit series Game of Thrones, shook the world, Kristian Nairn, thinks that the character died in a nice way.
In a recently held ToyCon PH 2016 in Manila over the weekend, Nairn, told reporters that he was happy how the beloved characters die in the Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 5.
“It’s really hard not to tell people, and of course, it’s really sad, but I really liked the way he died and I think he died a really nice way, and I was happy, I was pretty happy,” Nairn said.
He said he already knew about the death scene about a year ago, adding that it was hard for him not to tell people about what’s going to happen in the upcoming episode.
“You know, I’ve known this for the whole year, I’ve known I was going to die for an entire year. and I have really a big mouth I like to tell people things and it was really difficult for me not to tell. The only person I told was my mother, [she] was the only person. so if you imagine for a whole year, every day, people were asking me, what’ll happen for this season,” Nairn said during the opening of the ToyCon Ph 2016.
When asked whether he anticipated that Hodor’s death will be a big hit, he said yes, but what he did not expect was how the public, especially the online world reacted to Hodor’s death.
During the same event, Nairn also hinted a possible interesting twist that GOT fans should look forward to. When asked about the fate of the characters, especially Hodor’s death, the Irish DJ and actor said, “I know Hodor was dead, but this is Game of Thrones, anything could happen.”
