Kristian Nairn Height ~ How Tall is He Really?

"I had an upbringing to respect other people's privacy and their right to be and choose what they want, and I expect - no, demand - no less for myself."

~ Kristian Nairn

Irish actor, Kristian Nairn is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Hodor in the popular fantasy series Game of Thrones. Hodor in the A Song of Ice and Fire books (base material of Game of Thrones) was seven feet tall. Kristian himself is close to it or at least was... he had claimed to be 6'10" in the past and he looked like it. 

Now though... Kristian is starting to look a bit shorter - closer in height to Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain who rides). While a person his age shouldn't lose any height at all, it is certainly possible to lose height as a super tall person due to excess weight (he would have weighed probably close to 400 lb - 181 kg at his peak), bad posture, etc.

The height of Kristian Nairn is

6'8" or 203 cm

Peak height was 6'10"
