Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke bids farewell to Northern Ireland in emotional post

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has bid Northern Ireland farewell as filming reportedly wraps on the final season of the fantasy series.

The English actress, who has played Daenerys Targaryen since 2011, was spotted in Belfast over the weekend.

In a post on her Instagram page, Clarke bid farewell to Northern Ireland after reports she has completed production.

The image showed the actress lying on a bed of flowers with the caption: "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."

A number of Clarke's co-stars responded to the post, including Jason Momoa, who played her husband Khal Drogo in season one. He wrote: "Love u. Proud fo you."

John Bradley, who played Samwell Tarly, replied: "It's been the best. Ever. And you've been incredible."

Clarke and Bradley were spotted together in Belfast on Sunday as they both attended Liam Gallagher's Belsonic concert at the Ormeau Park.

The pair were joined by co-star Conleth Hill and showrunner Dan Weiss.

Clarke posted a snap of the group on Instagram, telling her followers: "The human embodiment of a wonderwall. Thank you #liamghallager for the reminder.. #90’stributebandlookalikes?"

The final series of Game of Thrones has been in production in Northern Ireland for a number of months but is believed to have been recently completed.


Titanic studios in Belfast plus a number of exterior locations have been used to depict the fictional land of Westeros since the show premiered.

The final series of Game of Thrones will air in 2019.
