Personal life[edit]

Nairn is 208 cm (6' 10") tall. In March 2014, he publicly came out as gay in an interview with a Game of Thrones fan site.[3] He stated: "When you talk about 'the gay community,' you are talking about MY community... I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it's really lovely. Again, it's a privilege, and I really mean that."[4] He went on to say that his homosexuality is "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."[5]
