We all learned the hard lesson this year, that Game Of Thrones spoilers were super hard to avoid… because the internet wanted to make our lives a living hell and leak all the good stuff.
Well, HBO is now taking some insane extra measures to ensure that NO spoilers leak about the final season - and you should be happy about that.
The actors reportedly don’t even know any details about the final episodes other than on a need to know basis.
In a recent interview with a Swedish talk show, Skavlan, the actor who plays Jaime Lannister (Nijolaj Coster-Waldau) revealed that the cast won’t be getting any scripts for the final episodes.
As the show has become more popular, the cast have gotten their scripts first in the traditional print form, then digital files, and then via verified emails.
Now, things have stepped up a level!
“We’re not even going to get the script.”
The actors will now apparently have earpieces and be fed their lines during scenes!
HBO is also panning to shoot multiple endings, in order to avoid spoilers, with the network’s programming director Casey Bloys saying, “I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”
This is going to be VERY interesting...
