The singer was performing as part of her residency at the London venue when she took time to visit Christie in the front row. She had previously brought Christie on stage during a gig in Australia, back in March 2016, after Christie revealed she has loved Madonna since she was a child.
Madonna shared footage of her recent conversation with Christie on Instagram on Thursday, captioning it: “Madame X plays Game Of Thrones with one of her favorite Knights!” – a reference both to her Madame X Tour and to Christie’s role as Brienne of Tarth in the series.

In the video, Madonna can be seen sitting down next to Christie for a casual chat, with Christie at one point telling her: “I love you!”
“Are you enjoying the show?” Madonna asks, to which Christie promptly replies: “You are so phenomenal tonight.”
Things became more risqué after Madonna asked Christie if she comes to the theatre often by herself.
“I love to do it alone… if you want something done well, you have to do it yourself,” Christie joked.

Madonna later asks Christie: “Where’s your drink?”, prompting Christie to pull out a small beer bottle, asking the singer: “Is this OK? Do you like beer?”
In response, Madonna takes a sip from the bottle before jokingly gargling with the liquid.
Some of the drink appears to spill onto Madonna’s face, leaving Christie to wipe it off, after which Madonna comments: “Winter’s coming.”
The joke is quickly met with laughs from Christie and the rest of the audience, before Christie quips: “Tonight you’re so great, winter isn’t the only thing that’s coming.”
