London: Actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says the scripts for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones are being kept under wraps from the cast to avoid any hacks.
The 47-year-old actor, who plays Jaime Lannister in the popular HBO series, says the makers have become paranoid after plot details of the show’s season seven were leaked online, reported Contactmusic.
“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 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 you’re going to do the line,” Nikolaj said in an interview with Scandinavian talk show Skavlan.
Game of Thrones season eight will film until summer next year, with the six final episodes of the series set to debut at some point towards the end of 2018 or in 2019.
