Kristian Nairn’s Exclusive Interview With FanBolt

DJ Kristian Nairn recently sat down for an exclusive interview with FanBolt while in Atlanta for Dragon Con. Nairn spoke with FanBolt about his music career, how he got his start DJing, Game of Thrones, and much more! Watch Nairn’s full interview with FanBolt below:

When Nairn isn’t busy playing Hodor on HBO‘s hit series Game of Thrones, he spends his time sharing his love of music with the world as a DJ.

“I was always a very prolific club-goer. I used to go to the clubs a lot when I was a kid. Much too young to be going to the clubs, I might add. I was always a musician. I always played the guitar, piano and stuff… I watched what the DJs were doing and the reaction they would get and I thought ‘I want to do that,’ and I want to take what I feel with my music and share it with people and see if I get the same reaction.”

Ever wonder what songs would make his character’s playlist? Nairn states, “Something quite repetitive like “Macerena”… he likes his dance routines…”Silence: by Delerium..he’s a quiet guy, so “Silence.” I don’t thnk it’s going to be too hardcore techno or something like that.”
