Game Of Thrones Star Reveals Season 8 Is Most Secretive Yet

The next Oceans movie better involve Sandra Bullock trying to steal GoT secrets.

As we all patiently wait for the highly-anticipated Season 8 of Game of Thrones, it seems HBO aren't taking any risks when it comes to leaks this time around.

Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry in the series and who made his big return after he row row rowed his boat for THREE AND A HALF SEASONS, gave us a glimpse of how the show had changed while he had been on his break at sea.

"The most palpable difference is just in terms of security," Dempsie said in an interview with Metro.

But it isn't an introduction of metal detectors and having your dragons patted down before entering the set, it's all about the secrets.

"I mean security in terms of plot and scripts and any information pertaining to where we might be shooting at any given time. During the whole course of season 7 and season 8 I have never laid eyes on a shooting schedule," Dempsie said.

"Your filming dates are on a need to know basis. You don’t get hard copies of scripts anymore. They are all on this special app. Which are triple locked. The level of security has upped massively."

Game of Thrones isn't the only production to amp up security to try and avoid major leaks. While Elizabeth Olsen was on Jimmy Kimmel Live she revealed Marvel wouldn't give her the entire Avengers: Infinity War script unless she went to a particular jail cell -- we mean reading room.

"They offered a room to sit in and read off an iPad for five hours in a room without anything else around you," Olsen said, "That sounds unpleasant, so I just said, 'Can you tell me what goes on and just give me my pages?'"

Dempsie also talked about the other changes he noticed in his three-year gap between filming saying, while nothing had really changed on the production itself, the reactions of people in Belfast were wildly different.

"In terms of going out and about in Belfast just for a bite to eat," Dempsie said, "We were just out in Seville filming. We were staying in this beautiful hotel in the middle of town."

"Within two days of being there, obviously word had spread that we were there, and just arriving back from work in the car it was like a film premiere."

The celebrity status of the cast was at its peak over the weekend when Dempsie's co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie tied the knot. Kit's on-screen sisters Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams were also there along with Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage.

While a release date for the eighth and final season has yet to be released, the six-episode season will definitely launch next year.
