'Game of Thrones' cast gets no scripts, star says

Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, said that after the script leaks that plague Season 7, the HBO drama is doubling down - to the point where even the actors aren't getting them.

Speaking on the Scandinavian chat show "Skavlan", Coster-Waldau revealed the unprecedented measures now being implemented to plug any leaks of top-secret story details.

According to the Morning Call, HBO programming president Casey Bloys gave a talk at Moravian College last month in which he said: "I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens".

Where before the scripts were given to the cast as lock-and-key hard-copies, the method was switched to password-activated digital copies to prevent theft. The hackers also demanded a ransom of seven digit amount to prevent the data leak.

Referring to the scripts for the final season 'I got them all, ' Cunningham told Metro, 'I can't open them because of all the security, and I can't walk it out'. There are state secrets that exist with less protection than the freaking Game of Thrones scripts for its final season. And then that got a little worse, so they had to do these verified emails, like you had to go through all these things to get your script and it was watermarked all kinds of ways so if you lost it, you would be sent to prison- no. [Laughs] And then the hack happened, so now we're not even going to get the script.

Coster-Waldau hinted that actors would be equipped with earpieces for each scene, and fed their dialogue line by line.
