Ad makes reference to the character's death scene from season 6
Kristian Nairn, the actor who played Hodor in Game Of Thrones, appears in a new advert for KFC.
The ad, titled ‘Lunchtime is coming’ and promoting the fast food chain’s new Ricebox menu, makes references to the character’s death scene in season 6 of the HBO show. Watch below.
Northern Irish actor Nairn also performs as a DJ, recently touring his ‘Rave of Thrones’ show. Describing his DJ sets as “loud, bassy, dark, uplifting, fluid”, Nairns recently told NME that he thinks his character would be a fan.
“I think he would enjoy dance music, with the patterns and repetition, but I don’t think he would be a great DJ, and certainly a terrible MC over the microphone!” he said.
Game of Thrones season 7 returns on HBO on July 16. Watch a trailer for the new season below.
Meanwhile, the final season of Game of Thrones will reportedly consist of ‘feature-length’ episodes that are more than an hour in length.
Speaking at Con of Thrones, a fan convention in Nashville, sound designer Paula Fairfield reportedly revealed that season 8 “could be in the 80-plus-minute range of a feature film”.
Fairfield also reportedly claimed that the finale of Season 7, which has been confirmed as being 82 minutes, will act as a potential blueprint for the show’s final season – ahead of its debut next year.
