Zachary Levi: Game of Thrones messed me up

Zachary Levi

Zachary Levi was reeling after watching the last season of epic HBO drama Game of Thrones.

The Star Trek actor is a huge fan of the epic HBO series, based on George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire.

Many of the show’s followers were reeling about the penultimate episode that aired last month, in which many high-profile characters were murdered.

Zachary admitted he was “messed up” for days after he finished watching season three.

"Well, I'm a giant Game of Thrones fan - the last couple episodes of that show just destroyed my spirits," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"I was messed up for a week, honestly. It was insane, I couldn't believe how much a show had just like... not since Lost have I followed a show that passionately and personally."

Zachary spoke to the outlet from Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The star was there promoting his new movie, Thor: The Dark World.

He said being a part of the project was a dream come true.

"[Filming Thor 2 was] amazing. I grew up a big comic book fan. There's a certain amount of bucket list things in my life as an actor - one of those things being a comic book movie - and I get to check that off and I got to work with incredibly talented people like that cast,” he explained.

The cast and crew shot the fantasy film in London, which wasn’t the most pleasant location. The experience, he said, was nevertheless “magical”.

"I got to live in London for five months, and, you know, the weather could be a little better," he joked. "But, it was still amazing. And I was there for the Olympics, and that was insane. It was really a kind of magical experience."
