Emilia Clarke pays tribute to Daenerys and 'Game of Thrones' in touching Instagram post

The last ever episode of Game of Thrones air last night. Watched by millions around the world, fan reactions have been pretty mixed so far. Some people loved it, while other people outright hated it. However, there's no doubt that the end of the show is going to leave a pretty big void in a lot of people's life. Not just in the hearts of the fans, but also in the cast and crew, who have spent so much of their time working on it.

One person who has been left feeling quite emotional over the finale is English actress Emilia Clarke. Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen, took to Instagram over the weekend to share her thoughts on the fans and the franchise in a touching tribute. She posted an adorable image of herself and the whole cast together and added a bittersweet caption alongside it.

Check out this interview with Emilia below: 

Emilia wrote:

"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."

She added:

"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."

Emilia isn't the only person to have gotten misty-eyed over the Game of Thrones ending. Last night, fans everywhere took to social media to talk about one very emotional scene in particular.
