Stevie Nicks dedicates Fleetwood Mac song to Game of Thrones star

Stevie Nicks gave Game of Thrones star Kit Harington a special shout out at Fleetwood Mac’s New Jersey concert on Wednesday by dedicating classic hit Landslide to the actor.

Nicks, who is a big fan of the fantasy drama series, hinted at the presence of one of the main cast members as she and her bandmates performed at the Prudential Center in Newark – although she didn’t directly identify the Brit, who is known for his role as Jon Snow, to prevent him from being mobbed by fellow audience members.

According to Billboard, Stevie then lamented the fact that she wasn’t invited to join the line-up for the upcoming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones because she is convinced she would have been the perfect person to play Kit’s onscreen mum, Lyanna Stark.

“They really should have cast me as his mother,” she told fans. “Oh well, too late.”

Stevie then raised a toast to her favourite “dragon king”, before launching into Landslide.

Crowd members soon realised Harington was among them – he was enjoying the show with his new wife, former TV co-star Rose Leslie. The couple wed last summer (18).

Stevie previously credited Game of Thrones with helping her beat a bout of depression as she struggled with the 2012 death of her mother.

“I didn’t leave the house for almost five months…,” she confessed to the Herald Scotland in 2013. “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.”

The series also inspired Stevie creatively as she subsequently began writing poetry about each of the show’s main characters.

The last season of Game of Thrones premieres next month (Apr19).
