This surprise visit was put together by TripAdvisor to promote their Game of Thrones tours. Nairn made his surprise appearance at their Giant’s Causeway Tour in Belfast, at Ballintoy Harbour where scenes from the Iron Islands were filmed. And yes, he did really “hold the door” for them.
Besides taking pictures with everyone and recreating the saddest moment in the show’s history, he also chatted with the group, sharing some inside information about the show. (So no, he didn’t just repeat the word “Hodor” over and over.)
So even though we can’t even think about this scene without having our days ruined, we have to admit that this must have been a pretty incredible experience. And of all the sad scenes on the show, it was probably a better choice than recreating the Red Wedding or Ned’s execution. Less blood in these pictures.
What other scene from the show would you love to recreate in a picture with one of the actors? Hodor your dream photo op by telling us in the comments Hodor below what Hodor you Hodor.
