The Game of Thrones actress has added to the excitement surrounding the upcoming series by telling reporters that viewers (and cast) will need to seek therapy after the finale next year.

During a red carpet interview this week, Gwendoline, who plays Brienne of Tarth, said:

I think just the show ending is going to send all of the world into professional help… I think it’s going to make me incredibly emotional.

“We’re all emotional about the fact that this is the end, and this is the end of something incredibly significant for all of us, and it’s been a truly incredible thing to be a part of,” she added.
