Singer says she found solace in the show after her mother's death

Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks found solace in HBO hit show "Game of Thrones" when her mother died, and she became such a big fan of the fantasy drama that she would like to write music for it.

"I didn’t leave the house for almost five months," Nicks told Radio Times magazine in the U.K. about her reaction to her mother's death in late 2011. "And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mother’s death, I watched the entire first season of 'Game of Thrones.' That certainly took my mind off everything."

Nicks appeared in an episode of "Glee" dedicated to Fleetwood Mac. Asked if fans may get to see her in "Game of Thrones," she said: "I would love to write some music for the show. I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it -- one for each of the characters."

Added Nicks: "I’m always looking for that kind of inspiration, and I’m very inspired by the show -- as I was very inspired by'Twilight.'"

Discussing her favorite "Game of Thrones" characters, Nicks told Radio Times: "Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) is my new favorite heroine. And Cersei (Lena Headey) is fantastic." She also lauded other characters on the show.

Nicks this year has also guest starredon FX thriller "American Horror Stor"y in an episode entitled "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks."
