Game of Thrones actor Kristian Nairn had a lovely weekend at London Film & Comic Con – not least because he got to meet Marty McFly.
Nairn, who plays fan favourite Hodor in the series, was attending the convention in an official capacity, but had plenty of time for fanboy excitement of his own.
He posted pictures of himself with the actress and Scream star Neve Campbell, and the star of the Back to the Future series, Michael J Fox, who took part in a 30th anniversary reunion panel with co-stars Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson.
"When we met he looked me in the eye and shook my hand and just said quietly, 'go on, say it for me just once'," Nairn wrote in an accompanying Instagram post.
Many Game of Thrones fans posted their own pictures with "Hodor", while Nairn's co-star Daniel Portman, who plays Podrick Payne, was similarly starstruck at meeting Fox.
Today I met Michael J. Fox. What an absolute gentleman and an absolute icon! pic.twitter.com/FqYrx1R5rR— Daniel Portman (@Daniel_Portman) July 19, 2015
