When it comes to keeping scripts under wraps, producers are taking no chances, according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister in the wildly popular HBO fantasy thriller.
He has claimed the actors are “not even going to get the script” ahead of filming, in an attempt to clamp down on the the plot leaks that have blighted the show in recent months.
It is not the first report of unusual tactics designed to keep the show’s plot a secret. Last month, HBO chief said the show’s producers were planning to film a series of false endings, solely in order to confuse would-be leakers.
“They’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens,” Bloys said. “You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know.”
HBO has not yet announced the airdate for the eighth and final Game of Thrones season.
