Here’s a sight to behold: Hodor jamming with Megadeth.
Kristian Nairn, otherwise known as Hodor from HBO’s Game of Thrones, was caught on video at Hellfest playing “Holy Wars… the Punishment Due” with Megadeth. The behind-the-scenes footage was posted on Instagram by Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro, and shows the Game of Thrones star shredding alongside Dave Mustaine, Dave Ellefson and Dirk Verbeuren.
And looks like Hodor’s got talents beyond ferrying crippled psychics around wintry wastelands. He more than held his own against Megadeth, unleashing fast-paced riffs and screaming solos—it’s a surprise, considering Nairn has a blossoming music career as a DJ and his 6.8-foot-tall frame makes the guitar look like a toy.
“Hodor! Hold the door! Holy Wars,” Loureiro wrote on the post. “He’s an incredible guitarist.”
