ReedPop through Reed Panorama Exhibition has boasted a stellar line-up of speakers and guests from local and abroad. One of the names that got us excited was Kristian Nairn who plays the role of Hodor on popular TV series, Game of Thrones. Hodor is portrayed as a stable boy for the Stark families who wills to give up his life for his master.
