The most closely guarded of scripts, rumour has it that if a member of the GoT cast reveals any plot points from an upcoming season of the show then they are thrown into a cage full of hungry bears with self-esteem issues.

Ok, while that might not be strictly true, Kit Harington has revealed that he did have to film hours worth of fake scenes with the sole purpose of throwing off paparazzi and those looking to ruin the plot for the show's seventh season

Insanity!

Speaking to chat show host Jimmy Kimmel this week, Kimmel tried to pry some season 7 info from the British actor, asking: "Will you have a scene with Daenerys Targaryen, can you tells us that?"

Harington's response was surprising to say the least...

"What I can say about this season is - we had a lot of paparazzi following us around, especially when we were in Spain, and we did fake some scenes. We put together people in situations where we knew the paparazzi were around so they'd take photos and that would get on the internet to fake scenes so people would think they were real."

They really have thought of everything.

Kit said he had to film three sets of five hour-long scenes, all of which were totally meaningless. As well as having to shoot on his day off.
