'Game of Thrones' Actor to Speak at Arts & Lectures Event

Hodor is coming to Cal State San Marcos.

Kristian Nairn, the Irish man best known for playing gentle giant Hodor on the HBO blockbuster series “Game of Thrones,” will appear at CSUSM on Oct. 15 as part of the university’s fall Arts & Lectures series.

“Game of Thrones” made Nairn famous, but he’s more than just an actor. For the last 20 years, he has been one of Ireland’s most prolific resident house DJs, playing alongside some of the best in the business, including Fatboy Slim and Steve Aoki. He’s currently playing his DJ sets in clubs around the world, and he headlines his own “Rave of Thrones” club show, an immersive GoT clubbing experience that has toured the United Kingdom, United States and Australia.

This evening with Nairn includes a moderated Q&A, an open audience Q&A and a meet-and-greet with photos.

All attendees must purchase or reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
