Game Of Thrones: This is how Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Gwendoline Christie bid adieu to all

Today marks a rather sad day for all the Game Of Thrones (GOT) fans out there. House Stark, House Lannister and House Targaryen who reigned in our hearts for ten years became history, in the truest sense of the word. It is not just fans and viewers who are heartbroken with the dramatic ending to the eight season long series. Prior to the airing and streaming of the finale episode, our very own Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark took to Instagram to bid their final adieus to the show.

With a rather moving message, Emilia Clarke who played the Mother of Dragons said a goodbye to her character. She mentioned how the show shaped her as a woman. Through her Instagram handle, she shared two pictures with her co-stars, one of her signature regal braids and a close-up of Khaleesi in all her glory.

She captioned the pictures as: “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”

Sophie Turner who played the eldest Stark daughter shared a group picture with the cast. She shared another picture featuring herself and her onscreen siblings, Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams) and Jon Snow (essayed by Kit Harington). Under the photos, she wrote quite an emotional note and addressed it to Sansa who she ‘grew up’ with and ‘fell in love with’.

Her caption read: “Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is. Thank you teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love. I grew up with you. I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on.. at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you’ve taught me. To the show and the incredible people who make it, thank you for giving me the best life and drama lessons I could have ever asked for. Without you I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you for giving me this chance all those years ago. And finally to the fans. Thank you for falling in love with these characters and supporting this show right through till the end. I’ll miss this more than anything.” She isn’t so much of a little bird anymore!

Before the fifth episode of season eight - where Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Jamie Lannister and Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister die in each other’s arms which is a bit of poetic justice – Nikolaj shared a bunch of goofy pictures with his onscreen sister-partner Lena with the caption: “The best, sweetest most wonderful sister from another mother @iamlenaheadey . That was a fun decade.”

He also shared a video hours before the finale episode where he asks everyone, ‘Who will win Game Of Thrones?’ and then shrugs.

Gwendoline Christie who played the loyal warrior-knight Brienne of Tarth took to her Instagram and shared a BTS snap with Kit. She pretended to look distressed on being told how the season ends. She captioned it: “BEING TOLD THE ENDING TO @gameofthrones”

Is this a final wrap to GOT then? We wish we could say ‘not today’.

Here’s to ten years of ice and fire!
