The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Producers Are Very Paranoid About Spoilers Leaking

The extreme measures being taken to keep the script under wraps have reportedly caused problems with the cast.

Game Of Thrones star Iain Glen -- who plays Ser Jorah Mormont in the HBO series -- told BBC Radio 5 that paper scripts were strictly banned on set in favour of super secret iPads.

"They're absolutely paranoid now about anyone finding out anything about the series and spoiling it," Glen explained.

"We weren't allowed a written word on a page," he added. "Everything was accessed through iPads with different security you had to get through to access it.

"Which caused a problem for the actors, I have to say," said Glen.

The final season of Game Of Thrones is set to air in April 2019, which is a long time to be keeping secret storylines hidden from fans who are desperate to know how it's all going to end.

And iPads with beefed up security aren't the only measures the producers of the show have taken to prevent snoops from spoiling it for everyone.

After HBO was hacked earlier this year and GoT files were stolen, it was reported by AP that actors wouldn't be receiving scripts at all and would instead be fed lines through an earpiece.

The crew also created actual drones designed to shoot down any rogue aerial spies hoping to get photos from the set.

“If a drone flies above sets, there’s a thing that can kill the drones, which is really cool,” GoT actress Sophie Turner told Entertainment Weekly this year. “It creates a field around it and the drones just drop. It’s very X-Men," Turner said.

But according to Glen, it sounds as though the extreme security will be all worth it because the final six episodes are "absolutely phenomenal".

"The writers really, really came up trumps. The way they pulled it all together was a real writing task," Glen said.
