In reality, the Game of Thrones star is contemplating going into politics to verify everyone seems to be handled pretty.

The 41-year-old actor, who hails from the Northern Irish city of Lisburn, publicly got here out as homosexual in 2014.

And he has much more time to get political on behalf of the LGB inhabitants today, now that his character, Hodor, was killed in Recreation of Thrones Season 6.

“I hope that we will come into line with the remainder of Europe and the remainder of the UK and Eire,” he tells the Belfast Telegraph.

“There’s a lot different horrible shit taking place on this planet on the minute, I believe it’s the least of their worries. I believe we have to get it sorted out as quickly as potential.

“I don’t see why individuals are so involved at what different individuals do behind closed doorways or of their lives.”

“After all I've had ideas about going into politics. I actually don’t imply now, positively not, however sooner or later who is aware of?” he provides.

“It appears the [Democratic Unionist Party] who're, or had been, the predominant social gathering, haven’t precisely carried out my group any favours.

“I positively can be ready to make the change myself if it’s going to assist my group and assist different individuals.”

Granted, this 6-foot-10 TV star and DJ isn’t precisely searching for an entire overhaul.

“I don’t need something wildly totally different to what we now have now,” he clarifies.

“It’s simply ensuring that everybody is handled equally. Is that so progressive? I don’t suppose it’s progressive, I believe it’s human. And never simply homosexual individuals — girls’s rights, immigrants, individuals of various ethnic backgrounds.

“I simply don’t see why individuals are handled in a different way or with a special algorithm. It’s simply unsuitable.”

Kristian lives along with his mother, who works for the Rainbow Venture, a assist company for homosexual and bisexual males, and so they’re all too conscious of homophobic attitudes and assaults.

“Individuals are so pretty on this nation. I like coming residence, after which whenever you hear one thing like that, and it’s being determined for us by individuals who I really feel are utterly outdated of their views and are maybe not making selections for the precise causes, it’s saddening,” he says.

He’d have our vote simply based mostly on that interview alone. Maintain the door… open to the voting locations!
