scandal 20/05/2019

After eight seasons and seventy-two episodes, it's come time to say goodbye to The Seven Kingdowns of Westeros. 

Some of the show's biggest stars, including Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke, have paid tirbute to the show and the impact it's had on their lives before the finale airs later tonight.

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has shared a tribute to the show and how it shaped who she is today.

"Sansa, Thank you for teaching me resilience, bravery and what true strength really is. Thank you teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love. I grew up with you. I fell in love with you at 13 and now 10 years on…at 23 I leave you behind, but I will never leave behind what you’ve taught me," she wrote.

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) shared a behind the scenes look at her journey on the show including photos with her season eight cast members in and out of costume.

"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. 
Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being" she said.

John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) paid tribute to the show with a photo from his first-ever episode, writing "Listed here is the rehearsal where I first met Kit, and the first time I wore the costume that’s seen me through 8 seasons. I’m glad I kept this. I met so many people that week who have come to mean so much to me. Back then we couldn’t have known the journey we’d go on together. I wouldn’t swap that experience, or those people, for the world."

Gwendoline Christie (Brienne Of Tarth) shared a photo of her and Kit Harrington with the simple caption, "BEING TOLD THE ENDING TO @gameofthrones."

While we saw Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) go back over the wall earlier this season, the star has said his final goodbyes with a photo featuring his wife and on-screen crush, Gwendoline Christie.

"Onscreen and offscreen love! Definitely a win win situation:-) Homage to Gwendoline Christie @gwendolineuniverse for her brilliant preformance as the warrior, the knight and the beautiful human being Brienne Of Tarth #GOTafterparty" he wrote.

Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell) posted a series of photos from his time of the show featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Jack Gleeson (King Joffrey) and more.
