Jaime Lannister Actor Explains How ‘Game of Thrones’ Scripts Disappear After Filming

Very few human beings across the globe actually like and appreciate a spoiler. Most of us actively avoid them at all costs when it comes to upcoming films or television episodes, but some people love to put them out there to ruin the fun and surprises. You know what they say, misery loves company. The problem with spoilers is leaked information is big business, and while we may not like them, oftentimes our excitement gets the better of us and we end up clicking on links that share information we don’t yet know. When it comes to something that’s packed full of surprises and twists like Avengers: Infinity War, a spoiler can really ruin the big moment.

2018 has seen a solid push for the eradication of spoilers. We understand there will be people who are going to try and ruin the fun, but fans of the surprise have been doing a great job of silencing themselves, on social media especially. Maybe it’s respect for the fellow fan, or maybe Thanos demanding our silence worked…



Fans of one series that have been dealing with spoilers for years are those who love HBO’s Game of Thrones. Timelines are filled with people talking about the last episode every Monday when the seasons are in full swing. People lose friends over the conversations at times. We all understand that once you see an episode you want to discuss it, especially with a show that has as many shocking moments as GoT, but Sunday nights aren’t an easy time for everyone to watch. That’s what HBOgo and the DVR are for.




With the final season currently in production, the folks behind Game of Thrones are doing everything possible to make sure the events on the way aren’t leaked to the public. With a history of both scripts and entire episodes being leaked on the net in the past, they’re not taking any chances this time around. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the show, explained one secretive practice they’re doing to make sure the actors don’t slip up while talking with Elite Daily at the Cannes Film Festival…

“They’re very very strict. It’s reached a crazy level this year. We actually get the scripts, and then when we’ve shot the scene — and we only have it digitally — and then when you’ve done the scene, it just vanishes. It’s like Mission: Impossible. ‘This will self-destruct.'”




If it makes sure everyone is quiet, we’re with it. Season 8 of Game of Thrones will be coming back to HBO in 2019.
