Emilia Clarke who starred as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones has shared an emotional post on social media as the show came to an end.
The series of 8 seasons which lasted for about 10 years aired its final episode last night which over 50 million viewers worldwide glued to their screens.
Speaking about how the show took most of her adult life, Emilia Clarke revealed that she put in much energy to portray the Daenerys Targaryen character which many have come to love her for.
She wrote on Instagram:
“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.“
