Last week was terrific in terms of an event that occurs on Saturday night for Games of Thrones 8. However, with so many secrets piling up, it has managed to increase the curiosity among people. Jon snow has managed to hype up things with his no statement mode on the ending of GoT. No matter who asked Jon about the end, John Bradley, Emilia Clarke, Rose Leslie or anyone else. He simply opted to be mute and made no comments on it.
It is not just him but earlier, Maisie Williams who is famous for the role of Arya Stark made an April Fool joke on The Tonight Show. With Jimmy Fallon as the host of the show, she said, “When I found out that Arya died in the second episode, I was like -”
And then she pretended to be shocked look with trembling expressions. These have managed to earn a lot of spark towards the show before it is even launched on television. Apart from the jokes, the team and HBO has maintained secrecy and put up a leakproof solid around it so that the craze is among the audience.
David Benioff with an interview with Entertainment Weekly stated, “It’s like protecting your house,” “You make it as hard as possible for burglars in hopes that they look for some other house to burgle, but it’s impossible to ever completely secure your house.”
Even Jaime Lannister portrayed by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau said, “They’re very, very strict. It’s reached a crazy level this year. We actually get the scripts, and then when we’ve shot the scene – and we only have it digitally – and then when you’ve done the scene, it just vanishes. It’s like Mission: Impossible. ‘This will self-destruct.’ ”
The fans got into the frenzied mood when even their favorite Stark – Sansa played by Sophie Turner said, “We would get sent sides for the scene (we were shooting) the next day. So, we would have to learn it all the day before. And once you’ve read it, it disappears 24 hours later, and you can never access it again. It’s tighter than the White House security.”
She added about the set visits by others, “had stickers on their phones so that they couldn’t take photos,” and even code names were given to characters, “so that no one knew who was really going to be on set.”
