Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen  (a.k.a. Khalseei- the mother of dragons) on the legendary fantasy epic tv series Game of Thrones has paid her tribute to the show who made her famous, in an emotional Instagram post crystallizing her final days on the show’s set.

“Hopped on a boat to an island to say goodbye to the land that has been my home away from home for almost a decade,” she wrote, sharing a selfie of herself lying among flowers.

“It’s been a trip @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I’d be able to live and the family I’ll never stop missing #????#lastseasonitis.”

Co-stars on the series commented on her post, including Lena Heady, who plays the vicious Cersei Lannister “Sweet words. Love you and HOLY balls. #itistheend,” she wrote.

Clarke’s season 1 co-star Jason Momoa, who played her late husband Khal Drogo, left one loving comment "Love u. Proud of you," he wrote.

In an interview to Vanity Fair last year, Kit Harington said that he cried when he read the final script.

“It wasn’t anything particular that happens,” he said.

“You have to remember, I’ve done eight years of it. I think, no one really cares about it more than us. I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It’s going to be a strange year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person. Not only you’re attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it,” Kit was quoted as saying.

Emilia herself said in an earlier interview with Vanity Fair that she was shocked and surprised to shoot the conclusion and hinting that the character’s end might surprise some viewers.  

The hugely popular show which also has stars like Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Peter Dinklage is finally coming to its end in 2019  but the fans of the series might not be disheartened for long, as a pilot episode for a prequel has been ordered by HBO.

As per the media reports, The prequel is as-yet-untitled and is said to be set "thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones", which was based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series A Song of Ice and Fire.

The programme's logline for the prequel explains: "The series chronicles the world's descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

"And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend ... it's not the story we think we know."
