Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) says the cast won't get Season 8 scripts

Game of Thrones is a very popular show, and it has faced its share of problems because of the same. The show is the most pirated show on the planet, and we have seen entire scripts and episodes getting leaked prematurely. The leaks went a bit too far in Season 7, and HBO has been vigilant since then, so that it does not happen again. In a new interview, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the role of Jaime Lannister on the show, talked about how HBO will not be giving the scripts to the cast this time. Read on!

Coster-Waldau was recently on the Scandinavian talk show, Skavlan, and talked about the security measures that HBO is taking up make sure there are no leaks, reports Belfast Telegraph. Apparently, the cast will not be getting the scripts this time, but will rather hear the lines through earpieces, on set. Nikolaj explained how the security has evolved over the years. He said :

“It’s very secret now. I don’t know if you heard but there was a big hack.

The first season we got the scripts like you should get them and then you could sit and do notes and stuff. And then after a couple of years they got paranoid because there was some leaks so we had to get them only digital, on a PDF file.

And then that got a little worse so they had to do these verified emails. 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.”

He went on to say :

“And then the hack happened, so now we’re not even going to get the script. Now we are going to do a scene, we will be told what’s going to happen and then we roll.

We’re all going to have earpieces for the scene and then someone’s going to tell you the line and then your going to do the line.”

So looks like the hackers won’t have it as easy as usual. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones casts the role of Harry Strickland for Season 8!

Game of Thrones Season 8 has begun production, as you might already know. A while ago, we posted about the new casting calls for Season 8, and it had quite a few roles. Being the final season, the show will need to tie up a few loose ends, and that will require a few new roles to be cast. One such role now seems to have been cast now, and it is a somewhat important one. Read on!

The role in question is that of Harry Strickland, leader of the mercenary group we know as The Golden Company. German actor Marc Rissmann seems to have been cast for the past, according to his Spotlight CV, and Agency page

Emilia Clarke defends nudity on Game of Thrones, talks about her Indian connection and more

Emilia Clarke Harpers Bazaar Interview (1)

Game of Thrones’ star attraction is the Mother of Dragons, also known as Daenerys Targaryen, and Emilia Clarke, in our realm. As the show draws to an end, the very one that made her name, every fan is looking forward to how it ends for Emilia, and what’s beyond it. She recently gave a nice big interview as the covergirl for the December/January issue of Harper’s BAZAAR magazine, where she discussed quite a lot of things. Let’s get into it!

The issue will hit the stands November 28th. Check out the cover, below :

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) discusses nudity on Game of Thrones, dating, and more

Speaking of where she comes from, Emilia said :

“It’s this epic story: My grandmother was colonial Indian, and it was a big old family secret because her mum had an affair with someone in India. She would wear makeup to make her skin look white. She loved India more than she loved England. Fuck, yeah. I love that part of me—I’m like one-eighth Indian.”

Apparently Esquire’s sexiest woman alive doesn’t quite believe in the concept of ‘the one’ :

“There is ‘the one’ for particular parts of your life—you change as you get older. So when I was in my teens, there was ‘the one’ for my teens, for sure, and then, you know, there’s ‘the one’ for the next time of your life. There’s this Buddhist philosophy that says you can only really understand yourself through your interactions with other people

I think in the early days I second-guessed everyone. I mean, I do that in life anyway, but especially with fame and becoming successful, and strangers knowing you more than your circle of friends, I would worry about what people thought of me. Then you get to a point where you’re like, ‘You know what? I’m okay.’”

She also spoke about how the talk about nudity on Game of Thrones annoys her :

“I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah, all the porn sites went down when Game of Thrones came back on.’ I’m like, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale?’ I fucking love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn’t handle not seeing it. That is all sex and nudity. There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce.

People fuck for pleasure—it’s part of life.”

Here are some of the pictures from Harper’s Bazaar interview.

Issac Hempstead Wright has a theory about Bran Stark’s Game Of Thrones season 8 fate

Bran Stark starts university in the UK, and fans react to spotting the Three-Eyed Raven out in the open

Of the many characters that make Game of Thrones what it is, there is one that is held to be the key to the whole thing by many a fans, and that is because the character has an air of mystery to it. We are of course speaking of Bran Stark, who is now the Three-Eyed Raven, and all deep. We have seen the character undergo transformation like no other on the show, and the character is at a point right now where he could be holding the key to defeating the Army of the Dead. In a recent interview, Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark, revealed his thoughts on how the Bran Stark character arc could come full circle. Read on!

Is the old Bran Stark really dead? Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright discusses in detail

Issac recently spoke to TIME, and it seems he has a new theory, and it’s not that same old theory which says that Bran Stark is actually the Night King, although we won’t be giving up on it just yet. Issac explained his alternate theory :

“I like the idea that it’s actually a full circle and Bran becomes the Three-Eyed Raven that was in his dreams when he was younger. I like the idea that it’s a deterministic, destiny driven thing where the old wise man went back in time as the Three-Eyed Raven to tell the young Bran to go north to the cave and it’s a paradox.”

Now, this isn’t really that far fetched, definitely lesser than the Night King theory. There have been things said that can be taken as clues. For example, this famous dialogue : “The past is already written. The ink is dry.” This is an indicator that Bran can’t really change anything, but can just become what he is supposed to become. There is a good chance he actually goes back to help himself become the Three-Eyed Raven. The Three-Eyed Raven even says to him as a farewell : “The time has come…for you to become me.” Could be yet another clue.

Here's a clip of the tragic Hodor scene from the Game of Thrones season 6 special features

Issac also expressed his love for fan theories :

“My favorite fan interactions are always when someone has something to say about the show or some kind of theory, because I’m a big fan of the show as well. I think I speak for the whole cast when I say that we all love this television series as much as everyone else does. So when someone comes up to me and gives me a theory or asks me my opinion on something, I love being able to talk about that.

What do you think? Could Issac’s theory actually be true? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

In addition to this, our source has also mentioned that filming has been going on at Wolf Hill Quarry, which was used to film the epic Ice Lake Battle in season 7. The filming has been going on since last week and apparently the crew has been filming even at night but we don’t have much information about what’s happening over there as people are not allowed to go near it.

We will keep on sharing more information and as when we come across it.
