The actress, who plays Brienne of Tarth on the series, told the Radio Times of the show's ending, "You're going to need therapy.

"The show ending is going to send all of the world into professional help."

Christie's co-star Emilia Clarke, who has played Daenerys Targaryen on the show since it debuted in 2011, said the eighth and final season is "bigger than anything we've ever done."
