Every fan community has a certain level of intensity, and at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, British actress and model Gwendoline Christie was forced to compare the fan bases following Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

According to the Independent, the actress who plays Brienne of Tarth in HBO's fantasy epic and Captain Phasma in Lucasfilm's Star Wars sequel trilogy was recently asked by a fan during the SDCC Game of Thrones panel on which fan base was "crazier." This was how Christie responded:


"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."

It's a good thing that Christie tried to answer the question diplomatically. Some fans can get a tad bit rabid, and if the British actress would have chosen one fan base over the other, we're pretty sure that her response would incite a war between both fandoms and result in signifcant backlash.

Game of Thrones airs on HBO every Sunday night. Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the other hand is scheduled to debut on December 15, 2017.
