Actress Emilia Clarke Quits ‘Game Of Thrones’ Series

Emilia Clarke, an actress that played the role of mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen in the TV series, Game of Thrones, has bid the cast and crew of the series a farewell.

Clarke paid an emotional goodbye to ‘Game of Thrones’ after visiting the set of the HBO fantasy drama for one final time.

The 31-year-old actress took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal she had visited the set of the hit HBO fantasy drama – which will air its eighth and final season next year – in order to officially say goodbye to the show in which she has been since the show’s first episode in 2011.

Posting a picture of herself laid down against some flowers, 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 @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I’d be able to live and the family I’ll never stop missing #lastseasonitis (sic)”

Despite the hugely popular show which is coming to an end in 2019, fans of the series might not be disheartened over Clarke’s exit for long, as it was recently reported a pilot episode for a prequel has been ordered by HBO.

The prequel is as-yet-untitled, and is said to be set “thousands of years before the events of Game of Thones“, which was based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series A Song of Ice and Fire.

The programmes logline 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.”
