Nairn's portrayal of Hodor on Game of Thrones was his first acting role; Nairn earned enough to buy his mother a house. He is a progressive house/trance DJ, and used to be the resident DJ of Kremlin, a gay club in Belfast. Since Game of Thrones began, Nairn has toured as a DJ with "Rave of Thrones" using musical themes and costumes from the television series. At the end of 2017, he performed the first part of the Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike concerts in Antwerp. He was the DJ during the BlizzCon 2016 anniversary party and BlizzCon 2018 closing festivities. In October 2018, Kristian Nairn appeared in a commercial for eToro that was launched on Youtube, featuring the Internet meme HODL.
In March 2014, Nairn publicly discussed his gay identity in an interview with a Game of Thrones fan site. He stated: "When you talk about 'the gay community,' you are talking about MY community... I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it's really lovely. Again, it's a privilege, and I really mean that." He went on to say that his sexuality is "a very small part of who I am on the whole, but nonetheless, in this day and age, it's important to stand up and be counted." Although media described this interview as his coming out, Nairn stated he had "never been in."
