Northern Irish actor and DG Kristian Nairn has just released his first dance track.

Kristian, who plays the monosyllabic Hodor in hit HBO show Game of Thrones, last year toured with Rave of Thrones, a GoT themed DJ tour.

Now he has just released his first two-track single, Up/Beacon, with vocals by Leanne Robinson, and he has plans to release more in the near future.

A regular on the Belfast DJ circuit, Kristian told Red Dot Diva in 2012 that he sees acting and DJing as similar processes with “slightly different components”.

“When DJing I am definitely trying to keep my mind very much switched on and for Hodor it’s really the opposite,” he said.

“I still want to be present in the scene and to react well to what is happening because I believe Hodor is a great reactor. I don’t think too much is planned in his head!”
