In a new interview, Kristian Nairn talks to Verizon about his music, his costars, and Game of Thrones while visiting New York City.
A successful DJ in Northern Ireland, Kristian is currently promoting his debut single, “Up” feat. Leanne Robinson while touring with Rave of Thrones.
“It’s a party for the people,” Nairn tells Verizon. “Fans do come dressed. I do my normal set. I don’t do anything different. It’s very much about the music.”
His musical gigs may be called Rave of Thrones, but it wasn’t his idea. “It was more of a managerial type decision from the promotions company. They thought it might be fun; I initially disagreed. Rave of Thrones? That’s so naff. But then people started to come. They had a great night and it got people’s awareness.”
Nairn discusses the other DJing actors on the show and the co-stars with musical interests. “We’re quite a musical bunch,” he says.
He dodges more specific questions about season 6 but acknowledges, “It will probably become public knowledge soon. I know Bran [Isaac Hempstead Wright] has broken the fact that he’s back, but it’s fairly self-explanatory that if Bran is back, then… Do you think I have this beard for no reason?”
I did in fact mutter to myself, while watching Nairn spin at A Night of Ice and Fire, “Damn that’s a big ole Hodor beard.” In addition to the beard, he’s been hanging out with his GoT co-stars back in Belfast, so…see you in season 6!
