Northern Ireland actor Kristian Nairn surprised a Game of Thrones tour group in Co Antrim on Wednesday and recreated his character Hodor’s famous ‘hold the door’ scene.
The unsuspecting group of fans were at Ballintoy Harbour on a guided tour arranged by Belfast company McComb’s Travel.
The area is well known as one of the main locations previously used during production of Game of Thrones.
After surprising the group, Nairn recreated the iconic scene from season six of the HBO series.

McComb’s Travel posted pictures of Nairn’s appearance on their Facebook page on Thursday, captioning the images: “It’s not every day that Kristian Nairn aka Hodor from Game of Thrones arrives on our Game of Thrones Tour!
“Kristian gave both Derek our guide and all of our tour passengers the fright of their lives when he held the door of Ballintoy Boat House.”
