For a show that relies so heavily on unexpected plot twists and turns, HBO’s Game of Thrones is beset by leaks, unauthorized set visits, and other spoilers creeping out ahead of time.
At least one star of the show takes offense Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, takes the leaks personally.
“It really, really upsets me,” Williams tells Radio Times. “Because, there’s only a certain group of people who’d look at that anyway, compared to the audience that watches the show.
“It hurts. It’s just like, oh we wanted to tell this story, and yeah, lots of people don’t want to read it, and don’t want to look at it.
“But then it’s even more annoying when you know [the leaks] might be from someone on the inside, and it’s just like… you’re trying to make something really cool, that is really cool, and people really like, and it’s like ‘stop ruining it’.
“It’s such a childish, annoying thing to do. And yeah, it’s sad. It really annoys me.
“I don’t know if that’s unexpected, that I’d be like ‘Oh, I don’t really mind!’ People still watch it, but it does really grind my gears.”
If these people leaking Game of Thrones have actually seen the show, they should probably know better than to get on Williams’ bad side.
