With Game of Thrones officially ended, HBO has started to market their other flagship series Westworld, which is getting its third season next year.

Clarke, who has also portrayed Daenerys Targaryen throughout the entirety of the show, said she was "overwhelmed" by how much she wanted to say about the show's conclusion - and also shared a touching tribute to her father, who died from cancer in 2016. And it just kind of took over my mind, it was all I would think about. "I'm happy", he said. "He was like, 'I can't be with you until you love yourself, I can't see you love me more than you love yourself.' That was something, him doing that".

Growing up in the spotlight caused Sophie, 23, major problems with her body image, and at one point she would eat nothing but nuts but she eventually sought therapy when her weight dropped so much, her periods stopped.

Sophie Turner explained how she developed a very close bond with Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams, who also grew up on the show and faced the same hurdles.

In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, the 23-year-old English actress said that growing up on Game of Thrones was very hard.

Turner first met the singer at age 20, she "was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell". "I genuinely thought it was a joke script and that [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] sent to everyone a script with their own character ends up on the Iron Throne".

For the occasion, the "Game Of Thrones" star chose a green and white plaid button-down shirt with a set of forest green biker shorts.

The Hurricanes managed to eliminate the defending Stanley Cup Champions in seven games in the first round. They got the short playoff series they desperately needed with the four-game sweep of the Canes.

"I've never asked, because I wouldn't want to put her in that position". As the lady of House Stark, Sophie Turner is definitely inspiring for many of us.

"Back then we couldn't have known the journey we'd go on together".

From 73 episodes, over eight years, the show's cast has evolved.

While saying that he didn't really want the job, Bran accepts it without hesitation.

Alongside pictures, she wrote: "Thank you for teaching me to be kind and patient and to lead with love".
