Without a doubt, Game of Thrones has become one of the highest profile — and not THE highest profile — TV series out there. Every week as it aired, fans enjoyed the speculation and water cooler conversation that comes with such a show.

Season 8 of Game of Thrones will bring the epic saga of power to an end. We know that the scripts have been written for the final six episodes, and based on earlier statements from actors, we had an inkling that the actors have already had them in-hand. However, there is one more surprising thing we learned from actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos in the series.

Speaking with IGN, Cunningham said:

“I got six [of the scripts]. I’ve got them all. I can’t open them because of all the security, and I can’t walk it out. I can’t open them.”

That’s right. It sounds like HBO has distributed the scripts to actors, but in the interest of security, have pretty much blocked them being able to open them.

Not quite sure what good it does for the actors that they don’t know what they’re reading, but we’re sure when the time comes, they’ll send someone over or give instructions for unlocking the scripts on their computers.

At least we hope so.

Production is expected to begin for Season 8 of Game of Thrones this month, and is set to go until summer of next year.
