Emilia Clarke says goodbye to ‘Game Of Thrones’ with emotional message
Clarke said the set had been her “home away from home” for almost 10 years and admitted she would “never stop missing” her GoT family.
“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 @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I’d be able to live and the family I’ll never stop missing #LastSeasonItIs,” she wrote.
Clarke certainly isn’t the only one to get emotional when talking about the series finale, with Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, previously admitting on The One Show that he sobbed when reading the script.
He shared in an interview back in October, “I cried at the end! It wasn’t anything particular that happens. You have to remember, I’ve done eight years of it.”
Harington continued: “I think, no one really cares about [Game of Thrones] more than us… It’s been an institution longer than any other institution I’ve been in. School, drama school, anything.”
“I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It’s going to be a strange year. Saying goodbye to everyone, having your last scene with this person or having your last scene with that person. Not only you’re attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it,” he said.
Game of Thrones Season 8 is set to air next year.
