As literally the whole wide world waited with bated breath for Game of Thrones Season 8 to premiere, Emilia Clarke decided to share a fun picture with the fierce Drogon - one of teh remaining two. However, the picture revealed what the real Drogon looks like. And it's hilariously just a green screen. The actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the series, took to her Instagram account on Sunday night as fans prepared to watch GoT's world TV premier and treated everyone to a BTS picture.
In the picture, Emilia is seen dressed up as Daenerys, hugging the green screen with a huge grin on her face. Drogon, which is named after her dead barbaric husband Khal Drogo, is quite obviously lying motionless in her tight hug. She captioned the picture with, “Me and my baby (dragon) (Drogon) just very excited for you all to see #season8gameofthroneswhich if I’m not mistaken begins....now. #gulp #enjoy #forthethrone#forthelasttime #buckleupkids @hbo@gameofthrones # # #☄ #.”
Here's the post:
And fans were just delighted to see anything even slightly related to GoT showing up on social media. Within seven hours, Emilia’s post got over 2.9 million likes and thousands of comments including those from celebrities like Reese Witherspoon. She had posted earlier too when she and her co-stars watched the first episode themselves. Here's her post from April 4:
And while all this happened, the first episode of Season 8 finally premiered where the Unsullied, Dothraki and Daenerys’ dragons made a regal entry into Winterfell as the North and Wildlings welcomed, with worried hearts. But they were not welcomed with good news. Bran came forward to inform the duo that one of Dany’s dead dragons had joined the team of dead. With the living fighting among themselves for the Iron throne, the final season will end with the big battle between the living and the dead.
The first episode of Game of Thrones season 8, which will have six episodes of over an hour each, premiered this morning in India on Star World.
