Iain Glen: Game of Thrones showrunners ‘absolutely paranoid’ about spoilers

Iain Glen told Variety that the showrunners are very worried about Season 8 spoilers.
It might go without saying — and in fact it may have been said already — but Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) put it out there nonetheless: the producers of Game of Thrones are really, really worried about Season 8 spoilers getting out.

If the Flyers can fire Dave Hakstol and replace him with Joel Quenneville, they have to do it
Sunday December 16, 2018

Joel Quenneville might be the next coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. If the team has the chance to hire him, they can’t pass up the opportunity. Reports this afternoon suggest the Flyers will fire head coach Dave Hakstol and hire the former Chicago Blackhawks head coach, at least according to Dave Isaac of the Camden Courier-Post. […]

Glen talked with Variety recently about the lengths the show went to in order to keep the possibility of spoilers to a minimum, which included shooting fake scenes and forbidding hard copies of the script.
“They’re absolutely paranoid now about anyone finding out anything about the series and spoiling it,” he said in a BBC radio interview. “We weren’t allowed a written word on a page. 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.”
The extra security couldn’t have been too much of a problem, as the cast did sit down and read “the entire arc of the story from beginning to end right through over the course of a day,” Glen said, noting that it was the first season the cast had ever done a full read-through in such a short amount of time.
It was, as you might imagine, an emotional experience.
“There were a lot of tears that day…and it’s been a season of that because it’s been a season of farewells and finishes,” he said. “Kit [Harington], if he wasn’t lying, had not read it, so he was reading it on that day for the first time.”
Like other cast members who have been giving interviews over the last 18 months, Glen (to HBO’s great relief) was tight-lipped about details of Season 8, except to say that fans won’t be disappointed because “these six episodes are absolutely phenomenal. The writers really, really came up trumps….The way they pulled it all together was a real writing task.”
