Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers (concerning the character Hodor) up ahead.

The world wept when Hodor met his end on the most recent season of Game Of Thrones. It wasn't just the fact of his dying that was profound. The buildup—the frantic escape from the cave, the revealing of his name's significance—amounted to a rich and proper sendoff for a beloved character of the series.

Some may have wondered what was in store for actor Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor. On Thursday night they got their answer at Comic-Con, when Nairn showed up at an afterparty at San Diego's OMNIA Nightclub to spin some house tracks for the adoring crowd, TMZ reported. That's right: Hodor is a house DJ. And, according to The Daily Mail, the 40-year-old Nairn has been at it for 16 years, so last night's performance wasn't just some publicity-grabbing ploy.

Several attendees recorded the performance. As you can see in the first video, Nairn makes a nod to GoT when the words "Rave of Thrones" flash on the screen behind him. It also sounds like Narin's got a taste for old-school house jams that take a bit from the Chicago and Detroit house scenes.
