Season six spoilers below.
Hodor, last seen beyond The Wall being commanded to “hold the door” at two different points in the space-time continuum, will reappear in the present at San Francisco’s Mezzanine this August. This time he will probably bring more words with him.
Kristian Nairn, the actor and DJ behind Hodor’s “Game of Thrones” character, has been using his television off-time touring the world on an elongated tour he’s calling “Rave of Thrones.” Hailing from Northern Ireland, he last performed his deep house music set in the Bay Area in 2015, meaning this appearance in the area will be the first since the tragic demise of his beloved character.
In the heavily-discussed cinematic death, Hodor held the door closed against an army of zombie White Walkers to allow the escape of Bran Stark and Meera Reed. Nairn has since told the New York Times that, while it was all very heartbreaking, he is enjoying fan tributes to his character since his final episode aired.
“There’s a very nice thing going around the Internet that says, ‘Not all heroes hold weapons, some hold doors,’ he said. “He is a hero now, but I think he always was, in his own way.”
See Kristian “Hodor” Nairn when he DJs Mezzanine in San Francisco this August 12.
