Party Like Hodor With This Exclusive Playlist From The 'Game Of Thrones' Actor

He may not be on season 5, but he IS on the dance floor.

By Kat Boehrer

Were you bummed that Hodor was absent from Sunday night's "Game of Thrones" season five premiere? Well, ICYMI, he's ALSO a DJ -- which means you don't have to have a completely Hodor-less year if you're into tunes.

Although his musical career preceded his appearance as the lovable stable boy on the cult HBO TV series, actor Kristian Nairn's work behind the decks has recently been getting worldwide attention. And -- lucky for us -- Nairn shared a few of his favorite tracks with us prior to his big gig last weekend at Ghostbar Nightclub at the Palms in Las Vegas.

In contrast to his newfound international DJ identity, Nairn's musical taste seems to err towards throwback tracks and old-school disco vibes. He’s big on synths and underground sounds, and seems to be inspired by the classic house music that spawned the EDM we know today. Take a listen to the tasty tracks below and read why Nairn hand-chose them to share with the world.
