Game of Thrones brought in decoy actors while filming season 8 finale to trick the leaksters

Game of Thrones has always had an insane amount of attention from leaksters and paparazzi, and it has been tough for HBO to keep the show secure. Season 7 had a lot of leaks, and Season 8 had its fair share of leaks as well. As we know, HBO spared no expense in trying to save Season 8 from leaking, and we have now learnt that they even brought in actors from the previous seasons as decoys to throw the leaksters off their scent. Read on!

This was revealed in the recently aired Game of Thrones Season 8 behind the scenes documentary, titled “The Last Watch“. It happened in Seville, where one of the ending scenes of the show, that is the Dragonpit scene where the new king is selected, was filmed. Executive producer, Bernadette Caulfield revealed:

“It’s very hard to keep the cast quiet, because when in Spain, you must eat and drink. So, they’re going to be out and about, and so we brought out a few ringers.”

The actors who were brought in included Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Vladimir Furdik (The Night King), both of whom had finished their filming prior to the Seville round, and some older actors like Faye Marsay (The Waif) and Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar) whose characters were last a part of the story in Season 6.

This isn’t the first time Game of Thrones used this strategy to propagate fake information to leakers. Sibel Kekilli, who played Shae, was also brought in for Season 6, even though her character had died at the end of Season 4.

The New Year brings with it new hopes and opportunities for everyone around the world. People all over the world are trying to get back on their feet after everything that happened in the Red Wedding year. Many are trying to get a fresh start, including some of Game of Thrones stars. Emilia Clarke, famous for playing Daenerys Targaryen, recently sold off her lavish California home at $4.4 million.

The modern home in Los Angeles’ artsy beachside Venice neighbourhood was truly a fit for the Queen of Dragons. The 2,817-square-foot home was built in 2009. It includes two bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The gated property features a courtyard with a 30-foot pool and multiple areas for lounging, including a covered space. The front patio has 80-year-old olive trees. The 0.12-acre property offers privacy behind its walls and mature greenery. It is also conveniently close to the beach and hip shopping and dining around the corner on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Clarke paid $4.6 million for the property in 2016, records show. She put it on the market for just under $5 million in August. It sold just before the end of the year after a price cut in November.

This might indicate Emilia plans to stay in England permanently. Earlier in 2020, Maisie Williams expressed her desire to move to France with her boyfriend. Do you have any such plans? Talk to us in the comments below!

The year 2020 was tough for people all around the world. In times like these, they need a distraction for momentary relief. That’s where the entertainment industry steps in. The artists work really hard on and off-screen to manage their job as well as their family. Some put up a smile even when they face grave problems in real life, like Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa. Entertainment Weekly recently honoured Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal for his performance on The Mandalorian.

Pascal is one of the actors who was titled Entertainer of The Year, 2020 by Entertainment Weekly. The show Mandalorian kept the audience hooked all through the year, pretty much like how Game of Thrones did for a decade. Moreover, Pedro was a part of both.

It is why I wanted to do this show. Selfishly, I knew [the Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda] was likely to make people fall in love with the show,” Pedro explained to Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation.”

Keeping viewers interested in an act for such a long time is not an easy job. Talk to us and congratulate Pedro over his achievement in the comments below!
