Kristian Nairn, better known as Hodor on Game of Thrones has come out. Or rather, he never talked about his sexuality because no one ever brought it up.

Nairn finally got his wish while talking to the fansite Winter is Coming, who asked the actor if he was aware of his large “bear” following in the gay community.

To which Nairn responded, “Well, in all honesty, when you talk about ‘the gay community,’ you are talking about MY community. I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99 percent or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all! Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that.”

“I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, ’cause it’s not something you just blurt out,” he continued. “I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!”

We’re glad he finally got his Hodor wish.
