New Delhi: Actress Emilia Clarke bid adieu to popular drama series Game Of Thrones in an emotional Instagram post. Wait... it doesn't necessarily mean the end of her character Daenerys Targaryen. Emilia may have just completed filming the eighth and final season of the show and there's post-production work, including special effects, left before the new season airs in 2019. The Internet had a "panic attack" of sorts after reading Emilia's post, which doesn't reveal the fate of her character. A terrified Instagram user commented: "What?!?!? Does that mean they've finished filming or she dies!?!?" Most of the Instagram users voted for latter. In her Instagram post, Emilia wrote: "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. It's been a trip Game Of Thrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I'd be able to live and the family I'll never stop missing."
