HBO's flagship series Game of Thrones is quite rightly the biggest and the most sought-after TV spectacle in the world. Everyone's waiting for the upcoming final season 8. Any details, fan theories and/or images from the sets grab headlines the moment it surfaces online.

It is known that the studio is taking all relevant measures to make sure the climax of the upcoming season isn't leaked, they are reportedly shooting multiple endings in order to maintain secrecy.

Now there are reports claiming Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen might die in season 8, as per India Today.

According to the reports, many major Game of Thrones actors including Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) were seen in Seville. They arrived at the Spanish city after shooting some important sequence from Dragonpit in King's Landing. Other characters seen on sets were Davos Seaworth, Brienne of Tarth, Sam Tarly, Gendry, Robin Arryn, Varys, Jorah Mormont, Yara Greyjoy, Grey Worm and Jaqen H'ghar.

But Clarke was nowhere to be seen. Given the current scheme of things on the show, Daenerys missing from an important part of the narrative does raise doubts. Season 7 finished with Jon Snow and Daenerys teaming up to fight the impending danger of the Night King and his army of wights.
