The legacy of ‘Game of Thrones’ is difficult to encapsulate because of its sheer size. In just eight years the fantasy drama has become one of the world's most popular TV shows ever.
Based on bestselling books by George R. R. Martin, ‘GoT’ follows nine families that battle for the throne of the fantasy world of Westeros. The show has helped little-known actors become household names, with award-winning performances from both new faces and established stars, but it will soon come to a close with the release of the eighth and final season. Many of the cast have said their good-byes to the hit franchise, wishing their costars well and musing on how time flies. Here’s a roundup of tearful parting messages from ‘Game of Thrones’ stars.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, shared a striking Instagram selfie with a heartfelt message. “It's been a trip [‘Game of Thrones’] thank you for the life I never dreamed I'd be able to live and the family I'll never stop missing”. Clarke’s on-screen husband, Jason Momoa, commented “love u. Proud of you” under the post.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, got a ‘Game of Thrones’ tattoo just last week that says "The pack survives," underneath the emblem of her character's family.
Fan favorite Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion, shared his favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ quote on Instagram: "'A wise man once said you should never believe a thing simply because you want to believe it.'"
The series might be coming to a close, but the cast's careers certainly are not.
