Game Of Thrones Actors Speak Out Against Online Leaks

Basically every big show or movie with a passionate fanbase has to deal with leaks, and Game of Thrones is of course no different. The Season 7 premiere is airing tonight, and before now, there were leaks and reports about plot points for the penultimate season. Now, some of the show’s cast has spoken out against online leaks.

“I get so angry about it like we all do,” Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s nothing you can do about it. People for some reason want to spoil things for other people and, hopefully, most people don’t look at the stuff. For those who do, it’s so easy to slip up and see something you don’t want to see.”

Littlefinger actor Aiden Gillen said leaks are especially unfortunate because he and other cast members work so hard to protect secrets. “You think about all the work you do,” he said. “I’d never say anything to anybody–even my closest family members. I take security very seriously. Maybe that’s just the Littlefinger in me.”

According to EW, HBO’s security for Game of Thrones is substantial, making use of things like scripts written in code and even keeping watch for drones on outdoor sets. But leaks and rumours are basically unstoppable, given how many people are involved in the production of the massively popular show.

Showrunner David Benioff said there is a silver lining to the leaks in that there are numerous false rumours circulating around.

Game of Thrones‘ seventh season premiered tonight, July 16, and we’ll have lots more coverage here on GameSpot soon.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
