As though we weren’t scrambling enough with the Daenerys news, those pesky people at Westeros decided to go and uncover yet another audition tape. This one depicts an Irish actor / DJ named Kristian Nairn auditioning for Hodor.
Fire And Blood: He certainly looks the part, though from what I saw he would more inhabit it physically than skillfully. Were I the one auditioning a Hodor, I would ask the actor to say “Hodor” in as many ways as possible, just to see what kind of different inflections we might get from him. Hodor is a one word role, not a one-note role. From the video (I urge you to see it before it gets yanked) I can’t tell if Kristian is an actor rather than just a big strong guy who looks like Hodor.
