Game of Thrones star has a pretty brutal warning about the final episode

The details of Game of Thrones' season 8 are Westeros' most closely guarded secret since...well, just about forever.

And with four months to go until the final season kicks off, fans are increasingly eager to find out whatever information they can about what is going to happen.

Some of the cast members have been sharing insider information about what to expect, and now Gwendoline Christie - who plays Brine of Tarth - has teased a particularly emotionally draining few episodes.

The actress told E! News that fans are "going to need therapy" once the finale (and Game of Thrones' last ever episode) airs.

And when she was asked if this meant someone dies, she added:

"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."

It comes as Emilia Clarke candidly opened up about Daenerys Targaryen's "final on-screen moments".

She told Vanity Fair

“It f**ked me up. Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavor in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is...

“I’m doing all this weird sh*t. You’ll know what I mean when you see it.”

Game of Thrones is due to return for its final six episodes in April 2019.
