GAME of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has told how she wishes her dad was alive to see how the series "shaped her as a woman" in an emotional post ahead of the finale.

The actress admitted she felt "overwhelmed" writing about what the show meant to her as she thanked her "magical" fans.

From 2am, fans will be able to watch the last ever episode of Game of Thrones after eight dramatic series.

Paying tribute to the series that changed her life, Emilia told fans: "Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me.

"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. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we’ve flown.

"But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we’ve made and what I’ve done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams. Without you there is no us.

"And now our watch has ended."

The last episode of season 8 has been watched by 33million people and counting.

King's Landing was wiped out, taking with it major characters. Now fans await whether Daenerys or Jon Snow will rule.

Game of Thrones airs at 2am on Sky Atlantic and is repeated at 9pm.
