Game Of Thrones Helped Stevie Nicks Battle Depression
Game of Thrones has been a point of obsession and intrigue for us over its past three seasons on HBO. But if used correctly, Fleetwood Mac front woman Stevie Nicks claims, the medieval fantasy series can also have vaguely therapeutic applications—or at least it did for her.
While speaking to the Herald Scotland on the European leg of Fleetwood Mac’s current tour, Nicks segued a question about grieving her mother’s recent death to the HBO show. After she died, Nicks says, “I didn’t leave the house for almost five months.
“I worked on the edit of my documentary about the making of In Your Dreams. And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mother’s death I watched the entire first season of Game Of Thrones—so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything.”
