WATCH: Kristian Nairn surprises Game of Thrones tour group and recreates Hodor's 'hold the door' scene

Kristian Nairn surprises Game of Thrones fans

Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor in Game of Thrones, surprised an unsuspecting tour group in Belfast on Wednesday.

The Northern Irish actor challenged the group to break through a door against him White Walker style at Ballintoy Harbour which features as part of the Iron Islands of House Greyjoy in the hit HBO series.

Here's the original scene from Game of Thrones:

The location is on the Causeway Coastal Route near the Giant's Causeway, which is the top UK Game of Thrones tour with TripAdvisor.

In the five years since the show launched, tours have risen by 2270 per cent at some locations across Europe. 

Antrim, which provides the backdrop of King’s Landing, King's Road, Winterfell, The Iron Islands, Riverrun, the Twins, Slaver’s Bay and Dorne, has increased by 229% in search traffic on TripAdvisor since the end of 2012.

You can book the Game of Thrones and Giant's Causeway full day tour from Belfast for £35 (€39) HERE
