Actor Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor on "Game of Thrones," came out of the closet (at least publicly) via an interview for "Thrones" fansite Winter Is Coming. About halfway through the interview, Nairn was asked about how bears hold him "on a pretty high pedestal," and he just matter-of-factly went for it, excitedly so....

I have some friends in the gay community, “bears” as they’re wont to call themselves, who hold you on a pretty high pedestal. One good friend of mine (I’ve known since we were in the 5th grade together) says your bear following is “extensive.” Is this something you’re aware of?

Kristian: Well, in all honesty, when you talk about “the gay community,” you are talking about MY community, haha. 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% 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, cos it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!

Congratulations Hodor!

    He's always been out of the closet. He was a drag queen for like a decade. Not news.

    Well why one earth would they when there's a class act like you right there.

    Are you kidding me? I came to write this because he's hot (TO ME) but then I realised, shit, this comment is also a bit homophobic. Love a straight woman who doesn't think people are gay because no one from the opposite sex wants to f**k them.
