Where to begin with ‘Game of Thrones’? In just eight years the fantasy drama has become one of the most popular TV shows ever. Based on bestselling books by George R. R. Martin, ‘GoT’ follows nine families that battle for the throne of the fantasy world of Westeros. The show has helped little-known actors become household names, with award-winning performances from both new names and established stars. The show is coming to a close next year, with the release of the eighth and final series. Many of the cast have bid farewell to the hit franchise, wishing their co-stars well and musing on how time flies. Here’s a roundup of fond farewells from ‘Game of Thrones’ stars.
