Played by Kristian Nairn

Hodor is a simple-minded stableboy at Winterfell. He is memorable for his large size, said by Osha to be a result of giants blood, and the fact he only says the word 'Hodor'.[1] The Stark children believed this to be his name, until enlightened by Old Nan, his great-grandmother, that his real name was in fact Walder.[2] He has brown eyes.[3]

In the TV series Hodor is played by Kristian Nairn.[4]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

After Bran's fall, he needed a way to move about the castle. Maester Luwin designed a basket that could be strapped to Hodor's back in which Bran could be placed. However, Hodor, being a simpleton, sometimes forgot that Bran was in the basket, which caused Bran moments of pain.[5]

A Storm of Swords

Hodor accompanies Bran Stark, Meera Reed and Jojen Reed north to find the three-eyed crow.
