A report by Unilad tells us that the studio is “going to film fake scenes to confuse fans” plus “they’ll also not be giving actors scripts” in an attempt to prevent potential leaks.

Last August, the script of the first 5 episodes of the 7th season was leaked online by a certain ‘Mr Smith’. Shortly thereafter, plot details were also revealed on Reddit.

Now HBO is taking extreme efforts to avoid such things from happening.

During the early seasons, actors always had hard-copy of the scripts before they began shooting their scenes. This season, however, will be “the most secure yet,” wrote Unilad, “with the actors even being given earpieces so they can be fed their dialogue to deliver, line by line.”

The award-winning show is based on the best-selling book series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by George R. R. Martin.

In 2016, the show even ranked #7 on Empire’s ‘The 50 Best TV Shows Ever’ plus Rolling Stone also named it the 12th ‘greatest TV show of all time’.
