Stan Lee’s exhibit is available for viewing and surprise, surprises, Mr. Stan Lee, who is 93 years old, just made a ‘live’ appearance at TOYCON today, June 11, exclusive for fans visiting TOYCON PH annual fest in MOA. Lee ‘Skyped’ with his fans who eagerly awaited his video appearance.
Following his recent ‘demise’ in the hit series Games of Thrones, Hodor made fans of the series excited as the ‘giant’ arrived in Manila to have a sit down meet-and-greet with the GoT character. Kristian Nairn was warmly welcomed by the press during the first day of TOYCON PH’s PopLife fan Xperience and he initially shared some GoT secrets to their fans inside SMX Convention Center.
“I’ve known this for an entire year and I don’t really think much. I like to tell people things and it’s really difficult for me not to tell. The only person I told was my mother,” Nairn told everyone when he was asked how he learned his character’s gonna get killed. “I knew that as well (if Jon Snow’s alive), I knew two huge secrets. It’s really hard not to tell people.”
“I can honestly say (categorically) that I know exactly as much as you, I knew nothing, like Jon Snow. But who knows, it’s Game of Thrones and anything can happen,” shared Nairn when asked by Karlo Samson of StreetsMNL for Inquirerr.net, what he can say about Hodor’s death in the series.
Nairn shared a lot of things during the press conference. He even shared with us that he’s wearing his same wardrobe outfit for 5-6 years and it has never been washed. “It smells like animals. It smells like cows, chickens, and horse manure.”
“We are like a big family, as dysfunctional as our size. Some of us still see each other for years,” said Nairn when asked about his relationship with his GoT co-stars.
When asked if he expects if Hodor will come back, here’s what he said, “From an ocular point of view, yeah it’s another years of work. Paycheck. I like it and it’s going to be amazing but from the character point of view, I kinda like the way it is. I think it’s really good, it completes, the circle. It’s weird to come back. But if they want me to come back, I’ll come back. I’m not gonna fight with them.”
Catch Kristian Nairn and the rest of the guests at TOYCON PH today and until tomorrow, June 12.
