Star Wars or Game of Thrones?
July 28, 2017 By Jon Somers
Fans are pretty passionate and generally each think they are the most passionate fans. Ask fans of Star Trek, James Bond, DC or any other series and you can bet they will think their group of fans is the best. But imagine being a star in two of the most successful franchises and then asked to pick which fan group is more passionate. Well that’s what happened to Gwendoline Christie who was put in an awkward position when she was asked which of her fan bases was “crazier”.
During the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con, a fan asked Christie – who plays Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy drama and Captain Phasma in the latest Star Wars films – who was more passionate.
In what was the most diplomatic answer ever given Christie said:
“It’s not really a craziness, but the level of passion is pretty much equal. What is noticeable is that Star Wars is something many of us grew up with, which gives many of us a sense of hope. That’s how I feel – like I came home. With Game of Thrones, we’re going into season seven now, and there’s a similar feeling. I hope that Game of Thrones lives on so people have that same feeling of home and love for it.”
