Emilia Clarke Says She Is Done With The Role Of Daenerys Targaryen When "Game Of Thrones" Ends

The Mother of Dragons is hanging up her crown after Season 8.

Posted on

So as any Game of Thrones fan knows (and TBH, probably also non-fans), we're only about two weeks away from the premiere of Season 7 — which also happens to be the second-to-last season of the series.

The not-so-amazing news? Emilia Clarke (aka Daenerys Targaryen*) recently confirmed that she is not taking part in any of the potential spinoffs!

HBO

* Full title: Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.

Clarke recently told Rolling Stone that she is done with her iconic role after Season 8.

I mean, I have no doubt there'll be prequels and sequels and who knows what else. But I am doing one more season. And then that'll be it.

Along with confirming she is done with the franchise, Clarke teased that the upcoming season will tie up loose ends and be full of satisfying plot points.

  1. So now the real question: Are you sad that Khaleesi's storyline is likely to end with the series?

    YES!!! I wish we could have a series that is based just around her!
    Nope! I think I'll be satisfied with the ending and don't need to see more of her storyline.
    Honestly, I'm excited about a new GoT show with all new characters!
