In a recent interview with Radio Times, Nicks said she’d be interested in helping out with the fantasy series.

“I would love to write some music for the show,” she said. “I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it — one for each of the characters.”

Nicks also revealed some personal favorite characters on the show.

“Khaleesi [Daenerys Targaryen] is my new favorite heroine,” she said. “And Cersei is fantastic… And you know who else is mean?...  the one that’s going to marry [Joffrey], Margaery. She is just such a great evil person. And she thinks she is going to be able to handle him. And then you have Brienne of Tarth – I love her.”

Nicks is no stranger to television, having recently guest-starred on the FX drama “American Horror Story” and having appeared on the NBC sitcom “Up All Night” in 2012.

Because she had visited the set of “Glee,” co-created, like “Horror,” by Ryan Murphy, and felt close to the cast and crew, she said she couldn’t turn it down when she was asked to appear on “Horror.”

“I couldn't say no,” she told Rolling Stone. “I could say, 'I'm not an actress, so it's going to [be bad] – but I will be glad to try, for you.”

Nicks is a member of the band Fleetwood Mac and has also released solo work, including the well-reviewed 2011 album “In Your Dreams.” Fleetwood Mac toured this fall after releasing the EP “Extended Play” this past April. In addition, it was recently announced that former member Christine McVie will be rejoining the group. The group’s publicist Liz Rosenberg said they “are hoping to make an announcement about a possible tour… some time in 2014.”
