Emilia Clarke says ‘Game of Thrones’ is filming multiple endings — and even the cast doesn’t know which is the real one

“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke says she thinks her co-stars are filming alternate endings to the series for season eight.
But Clarke said even she probably doesn’t know which is the “real” ending.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Clarke said, “I think that they don’t even trust us.”
We’ve heard about the “multiple endings” plan before from HBO president Casey Bloys.
This might be an elaborate plot to throw off would-be leakers and spoilers.
Any future leaks will have to be taken with a grain of salt because they might not be “real.”

Almost as soon as “Game of Thrones'” seventh season concluded last year, HBO began spreading word of a plan to thwart the spoiler-hungry fanbase. Now Emilia Clarke is adding fuel to the fire with a new interview in The Hollywood Reporter.

“I think they’re filming a bunch of stuff and they’re not telling us,” Clarke said on THR’s “Awards Chatter” podcast.

According to Clarke, not only might “they” (likely a reference to co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) be shooting fake endings, but they aren’t cluing the cast into which ones are real or not.

Here’s the full section from “Awards Chatter” for context:

Scott Feinberg: “How long have you known how ["Game of Thrones”] is going to end?”

Emilia Clarke: “I don’t even know that I do now. I’m being serious. I think they’re filming a bunch of stuff and they’re not telling us. I’m being serious — I’m being deadly serious. I think that they don’t even trust us.”

Feinberg: “So you don’t know who ends up on the throne?”

Clarke: “No. I don’t even know. I read what I read last year — I’ve read those scripts. Holy moly. [I[It]ook me a couple hours to come down from that. That was the most intense reading experience of my life.”

Feinberg: “But you didn’t read the last episode?”

Clarke: “I did, and since then, people are saying something on set and you’re just like, ‘I think that they’re filming other stuff.’ And everybody’s being really cagey about it. And then there’s a lot of like ‘Wait why’re you — what are you — wait a second.’ Cause there’s lots of different endings that could happen that I think that we’re all doing all of them and we aren’t being told which is actually what’s gonna happen.”

It sounds like Clarke is saying that she’s noticed comings and goings on set that don’t seem to add up with the scripts she and the cast received last fall. And not only that, but she says she thinks Benioff and Weiss are keeping the real ending a secret — even from the cast.

Last year, HBO programming president Casey Bloys spoke about a similar-sounding plan.

“I know ‘Game of Thrones,’ the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens,” Bloys said at Moravian College in Pennsylvania, local paper The …read more
