- Joe Jonas knows how “Game of Thrones” ends.
- That’s because his fiancée Sophie Turner – who plays Sansa Stark in the hit series – told him what happens.
- Precautions were taken, though, as Turner told Entertainment Tonight that Jonas was made to sign an NDA after being filled in on the details.
- Earlier this year, Turner admitted to W Magazine that she’s already told a few friends how the show ends.
- “I’m so bad at keeping secrets,” she said.
Joe Jonas just couldn’t help himself.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Turner said that Jonas “kind of figured it out” and asked to be filled in.
“He signed an NDN, NDA and everything so it’s all good,” Turner told ET’s Leanne Aguilera at WonderCon in Anaheim, California.
Jonas isn’t the only one the actress has told about the ending, either.
Earlier this year, the 23-year-old admitted to W Magazine that she’s already told a few friends how the show ends.
“I’m so bad at keeping secrets,” she said.
“I don’t think people tell me things anymore because they know that I can’t keep them. I’ve already told the ending of ‘Game of Thrones’ to a few people.
“I was like, ‘Hey, if you want to know, I’ll tell you,'” she said.
“But it’s people that I know, not random people. It’s people that I know will keep the secret.”
HBO has taken extreme measures over the show’s run to try and prevent leaks, but has struggled to keep all of the secrets under wraps.
For example, on season seven, Gendry’s return was confirmed when a full video of actor Joe Dempsie filming new scenes leaked online.
It was reported in 2017 that “Game of Thrones” would “shoot multiple versions” of the ending to prevent the fanbase from gathering any information.
“I know ‘Game of Thrones,’ [for] the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said at Moravian College in Pennsylvania, as reported by The Morning Call.
“I think they’re filming a bunch of stuff and they’re not telling us,” Clarke said on THR’s “Awards Chatter” podcast. “I’m being serious – I’m being deadly serious. I think that they don’t even trust us.”
Ian Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont on “Game of Thrones,” told BBC Radio 5 that the cast was given secure iPads on which to read the scripts for season eight.
“They’re absolutely paranoid now about anyone finding out anything about the series and spoiling it,” he said. “Everything was accessed through iPads with different security you had to get through.”
Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss told Entertainment Weekly that they turned to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy for tips on how to keep secrets.
“They have given us a lot of hints about how to lock things down, things we never would have thought of or didn’t know were possible,” Weiss said.
“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO for its eighth and final season on Sunday, April 14.
