- Emilia Clarke shared a goodbye note on her Instagram
- "Finding the words to write this left me overwhelmed," she wrote
- "Love you forever, Dany and Drogo," wrote Jason Momoa
This is a spoiler free Game Of Thrones read. So don't you worry. It's been hours since the curtains were drawn on Game Of Thrones once and for all and folks from Camp Targaryen and the Unsullied and the Greyjoys and the Starks flooded Instagram with posts that are emotional tug at your heartstrings. Emilia Clarke, who played the Mother of Dragons for 10 years and eight seasons, bid adieu to Daenerys Targaryen in a lengthy post, signing it off with "Mother of dragons over and out." *Sniff sniff* We aren't crying, you're crying. Anyway, as Emilia Clarke wrote how the wildly popular character "has taken up the whole of my adult life," comments poured in on her feed in numbers but the most touching of them all was that of actor Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, the Dothraki chieftain, Danaerys' "sun and stars."
Khal Drogo, to whom Daenerys was married off somewhat against her will, met his end in the very first season finale Fire And Blood in 2010, which marked a turning point in the Dothraki Khaleesi's life - she emerged as the feisty mother of dragons from the ashes of her husband's pyre. Almost eight years later, Khal Drogo writes: "Love, my love. So proud of you. Love you forever, Dany and Drogo."
Others who commented on Emilia Clarke's post include John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), Gwendoline Christie (Ser Brienne Of Tarth) and Pilou Asbek (Euron Greyjoy), each of who feature in pictures on her post and all of who also bid Game Of Thrones farewell with own experiences. Aisling Franciosi (Lyanna Stark), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Bella Ramsey (Lady Mormont), Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Conleth Hill (Varys), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) also feature in Emilia Clarke's pictures.
"Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we've flown," wrote Emilia Clarke along with a thank you note for fans: "But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we've made and what I've done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams. Without you there is no us. And now our watch has ended."
Red Emilia Clarke's full post here:
Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me. The mother of dragons chapter has taken up the whole of my adult life. This woman has taken up the whole of my heart. I've sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice. Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we've flown. But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we've made and what I've done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams. Without you there is no us. And now our watch has ended. @gameofthrones @hbo #love #motherofdragonsoverandout
