Emilia (29) is in Northern Ireland filming for season seven of the HBO show.

"Belfast you are shining for us this morning," the British actress wrote on Instagram on Sunday, alongside a picture of a foggy outdoor scene.

She followed the caption with several hashtags, stating: "Makes Sunday working that much more doable, or maybe that's the 17 coffees. The Mother of Dragons sure woke up this morning."

Shooting began at the end of August in the city, where a large part of the filming takes place.

Fans of the show have been lucky to spot the cast between filming throughout the seasons, with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who play Sansa and Arya Stark, even getting a tattoo at the Belfast City Skinworks in September.

The hit series will end after season eight leaving fans with only two more series of the Golden Globe-winning show.

Show bosses have kept pretty quiet about the last two series, only revealing that they'll be shorter in length than the previous six seasons.
