Bears, rejoice! Game of thrones regular Kristian Nairn came out in an interview on Winter is Coming, a Game of Throne fan site, and the big giant oaf (as portrayed on GoT) is a welcome addition to the family.
From the post-
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!
Nairn also explained his love of metal music from a young age including bands like Sepultura and Obituary. He also discussed his love of Djaying, a gig he practiced long before making his way onto the HBO smash hit.
