NOTE: Only “reprinting” the paragraph mentioning Rory, you’ll see why. Go to the above two links for the whole thing. As far as I know, Nairn’s mom pulled through. I checked his Instagram and as of September ’20 there doesn’t seem to be anything more about the incident.


“I was working as a DJ and in musical theatre. I didn’t have any real aspirations to act but my agent put me up for a role in Simon Pegg’s film Hot Fuzz. Another one-worder, oddly enough – that was ‘Yarp,'” Nairn recalled. “I didn’t get it, – by coincidence, it went to Rory McCann [who plays The Hound in GoT] – but the casting director remembered me, and four years later, called me back for Hodor.”
