The 31-year-old actress took to Instagram on Sunday (17.06.18) to reveal she had visited the set of the hit HBO fantasy drama – which will air its eighth and final season next year – in order to officially say goodbye to the show in which she has played mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen since the show’s first episode in 2011.

Despite the hugely popular show – which also stars the likes of Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and Peter Dinklage – coming to an end in 2019, fans of the series might not be disheartened for long, as it was recently reported a pilot episode for a prequel has been ordered by HBO.
The prequel is as-yet-untitled, and is said to be set “thousands of years before the events of ‘Game of Thones'”, which was based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’.
The programmes logline explains: “The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.
“And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend … it’s not the story we think we know.”
The prequel has been created by Martin and Jane Goldman, who will be serving as the showrunner.
