‘Game of Thrones’ Goes To Extremes To Keep Season 7 Spoilers From Leaking
HBO “Game of Thrones” executives are so concerned about season 7 spoilers being leaked to the internet that they no longer allow actors to print the script.
Instead, actors may only receive them digitally via an email account that must have a two-part authentication system, Nathalie Emmanuel told Fabulous magazine earlier this week.
Emmanuel plays Daenerys’ friend Missandei. The show is moving past George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire,” and fear of leaks has apparently grown. (RELATED: WATCH The Stunning First Trailer For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season Seven)
Even rehearsal notes must be checked out and returned each day, she told Fabulous.
“You might get given rehearsal notes on set, but you have to sign for and return them before you leave,” Emmanuel said. “If you don’t, people will chase you until you give them back!”
In another recent interview, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, shared that the secrets from season 7 were already out there on the web.
“It’s all out there by the way… if you can find it,” the actor said. He added that because “there’s 10,000 other spoilers out there, they’re not real. It just gets lost in the shuffle.”
“Game of Thrones” season 7 returns to HBO July 16.
