Emilia Clarke on Game of Thrones Season 8 security measures: social media ban and multiple endings

Game of Thrones is a show that is so popular, it’s famous for being there most pirated show, ever. Now, over the years we’ve seen a lot of leaks that have had to do with the show, ranging from little bits to entire scripts and plots, and even episodes.

Sophie Turner confirms Game of Thrones will not return till 2019

For Season 7, we saw the number of leaks that emerged, making it the most leaked Season yet, and it’s natural that HBO is trying everything to make sure Season 8 doesn’t suffer the same fate. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) discussed the the security measures for Season 8, and more. Read on!

Speaking of the restrictions this year, Emilia said :

“We have a very strict social-media ban this year, because people need to stop spoiling it for everyone. It’s really frustrating.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) talks about the cliffhanger in 'The Spoils of War'

That’s not all. Emilia also says that nobody really knows the ending of the show because the showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, have written multiple endings for the show :

“None of the cast know what the actual ending is. If there’s ever a leak of any kind, don’t believe it because it’s probably not true.”

She also talked about the end of the show, which she says will be very emotional. She also spoke about a lot of other things, so go check out the interview, here. Speaking of Game of Thrones, we cannot wait to see how the season goes for Daenerys. Got any theories? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
