Sharing details from his personal life, “Game of Thrones” star Kristian Nairn announced to the world that he is a gay man on Tuesday (March 11).

While discussing his sexuality with the fansite Winter Is Coming, the 38-year-old actor stated, “Well, in all honesty, when you talk about ‘the gay community,’ you are talking about MY community, It’s a privilege, and I really mean that.”

Also revealing why he failed to mention being gay before, Kristian admitted, “I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, cos it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!”

He continued, “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. It’s 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.”

“I have and always will stand my ground. So, yea, people have been great, on the show, but I don’t see why it would be an issue,” he added.

After the Q&A session hit the web, Mr. Nairn took to his Twitter account and tweeted, “haha. Yeah it’s weird to see ‘comes out’ as the headline!! I was never in!! No one asked! Lol.”
