When one door closes, another one opens. (Too soon?)

That certainly seems to be the case for Game of Thrones star Kristian Nairn, who portrayed the beloved Hodor on the series up until last Sunday’s episode, when he tragically died holding a door closed.

While Nairn’s days on the hit HBO show may be over, it turns out his music career has actually been booming since his character’s heroic demise.

“His demand has shot up, with offers coming in from all over the [world],” his agent, CEG’s Michael Schweiger, told Page Six. “Funny how some people get famous after they die.”

As it turns out, Nairn is an accomplished electronic music DJ who regularly tours with his show, aptly named Rave of Thrones.

Who knows? If Kit Harington‘s Jon Snow can come back to life, perhaps Nairn might return to Westeros one day, too – though let’s pray it’s not as a White Walker.

And in the meantime, there are still plenty of to go around.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on HBO.
