Per Clarke , creators and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have “written a number of different endings .” None of the cast know what the actual ending is. It’s not unheard of for Game of Thrones cast members to fudge the truth a little when trying to mislead the audience.

No spoilers please: HBO's head of programming Casey Bloys said that Game of Thrones producers are 'going to shoot multiple versions of the show's ending '. Tall order: He told students 'when you're shooting something, people know .

  • "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.

Clarke added, “They’ve written a number of different endings ,’ she says . ‘So none of the cast know what the actual ending is.

"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.

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."

First Solo: A Star Wars Story reactions deem Alden Ehrenreich 'the real deal'

  First Solo: A Star Wars Story reactions deem Alden Ehrenreich 'the real deal' Solo: A Star Wars Story experienced some intense changes over the course of production, but it came out on the other end intact. That’s according to the critics coming out of the premiere screening of the film in Los Angeles on Thursday night. The first reactions to the second standalone Star Wars film has many calling Alden Ehrenreich, who plays a young Han Solo, “the real deal” with “swagger to match.” “Alden Ehrenreich is super impressive as Han,” Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy tweeted. © Jonathan Olley/© 2018 Lucasfilm Ltd.

Emilia Clarke Says Game Of Thrones Is Pulling Out All The Stops To Prevent Season 8 Spoilers. As the year comes to an end, we're reminded that we still don' t have any clarity on what to expect from the ending of Game of Thrones .

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. [It] took 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.

Emilia Clarke: Stop Referring to Female Characters as ‘Strong,’ It’s Sexist

  Emilia Clarke: Stop Referring to Female Characters as ‘Strong,’ It’s Sexist Emilia Clarke wants everyone to know that she doesn’t play strong female leads, just female leads. In an interview at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday as part of the Kering Women in Motion talks, the “Solo: A Star Wars Story” lead condemned the usage of the phrase “strong women” by journalists as sexist. She said its usage is senseless for a female lead. “If it’s not strong, what is it? Are you telling me there’s another option, that there’s a weak option?” Clarke said. “You think a lead in a movie is going to be a weak woman? It just doesn’t even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please.

Ending , not endings ? Daenerys Targaryen ( Emilia Clarke ) and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) Helen Sloan/HBO. He indicated that even the show’s cast members wouldn’ t know which ending is the real one until the episode airs. “I know in Game of Thrones , the ending , they’re going to shoot

But according to a new interview with star Emilia Clarke , precautions are going even further than that: not even the actors, she says , will know how it all ends. Now, there was reason enough to doubt this multiple - endings story from Bloys in the first place. Putting aside the fact that HBO, Game of

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 Morning Call reported.

But as INSIDER reported at the time, this plan might be less of a practical reality and more of a clever mind game HBO is playing with fans. Paparazzi photos and digital pages of scripts have leaked in the past, sometimes revealing major plot points like Jon Snow's return.

By putting the word out that there are multiple endings being filmed, HBO (and Clarke and Bloys) are muddying the waters for the spoiler-hungry followers online. Now, as seemingly inevitable leakers spring up online, we'll have to take their reports with a grain of salt because it might be based on one of the faked scenes.

Even now, as Clarke was speaking with THR, a large group of the cast is gathered in Seville, Spain, where the seventh season dragonpit scenes were filmed. This has sparked conversations among the fans about what exactly is happening. A fun cast party? Filming behind-the-scenes interviews? A big finale scene?

'Star Wars' Writer Confirms Lando's Sexual Fluidity In 'Solo'

  'Star Wars' Writer Confirms Lando's Sexual Fluidity In 'Solo' Since the beginning of the “Star Wars” saga, we’ve wondered whether LGBTQ characters exist in George Lucas’ galaxy far, far away. Up until 2018, there had been little to no queer representation in his decades-old franchise. And then “Solo: A Star Wars Story” happened.The film centers on a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich ) and his associates Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). “Solo” gives fans the Millennium Falcon backstory they had been pining for, with plum new defining character details. One of the more notable ones: Lando appears to be pansexual.

Emilia Clarke has revealed that she and her fellow Game of Thrones cast members do not know how the series will end. Amid endless speculation regarding the fate of our favourite Westeros-ians

Clarke's absence from that gathering is curious, along with the presence of surprising faces. "Game of Thrones" news site Watchers on the Wall has the full spoiler report on the Seville sightings. But this serves as just one example of how Benioff and Weiss might be trying to confuse the narrative around season eight speculation.

You can read more about this "multiple endings" plan and our theories around it here. "Game of Thrones" will return sometime in 2019 (our guess is spring, but more on that here).

Donald Glover on Lando's sexuality in Solo: 'How can you not be pansexual in space?' .
Jonathan Kasdan made news last week when the co-screenwriter of Solo: A Star Wars Story responded to a question by The Huffington Post as to whether Lando Calrissian was pansexual. “I would say yes,” answered Kasdan. “There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality. I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity -- sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of. He doesn’t make any hard and fast rules. I think it’s fun. I don’t know where it will go.” So when Donald Glover showed up alongside stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, and Paul Bettany for a Solo: A Star Wars Story Town Hall that will air on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio (channel 105) on Thursday, May 24 at 6 p.m., we asked the man who plays Lando if we was aware of Lando’s pansexuality while making the film. “How can you not be pansexual in space?” responded Glover as Ehrenreich and Clarke expressed surprise at hearing the news for the first time. “There are so many things to have sex with. I didn’t think that was that weird. Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody. I mean, yeah, whatever. It just didn’t seem that weird to me ‘cause I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s like, no, only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob.
