Here's the second part of my interview with Game of Thrones' Hodor (Kristian Nairn) where we discuss some items outside of the hit HBO show. Nairn is a super, huge Thor fan and visits CBM often for all things Thor related. However, he was understandably busy shooting Season 2 of Game of Thrones and missed out on some choice CBM developments so it fell to me to bring him up to speed. If you missed the first part of the interview which was predominantly focused on Game of Thrones, click here. Embrace him CBM community, this guy is definitely one of us!

Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones, the television series debuted in the U.S. on April 17, 2011. The production is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, with additional locations elsewhere in Europe also being used. The show's cast is mainly British and Irish.
Highly-anticipated since its early stages of development, Game of Thrones was very well received by fans and critics. The series was picked up for a second season on April 19, 2011, two days after its premiere. On July 14, 2011 the nominations for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced, with Game of Thrones being nominated for 13 categories, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage, which he won. The series also won an Emmy for Outstanding Main Title Design the weekend before, at the Academy's non-televised technical Emmy awards presentation.
