Drunk texting your ex. Burning the house down whilst trying to make pizza. Urinating in public. These are all pretty common concerns for the average drunk person during a particularly boozy night. But for the cast of #GameofThrones, there's a much larger threat to keep in mind: Accidentally leaking spoilers.
According to a recent interview with Nick Grimshaw on his BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, Maisie Williams and her Game of Thrones co-stars like to get on the hooch after a hard day at work. However, she's rather worried that they might get a bit too loose and let some script details slip:
"We go out for drinks and stuff and we just end up talking about the show and then, because we’re a season ahead we have to really watch what we’re saying".
If this blurry photo of Williams with Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Isaac Wright (Bran) out on the town is anything to do by, the Stark siblings definitely enjoy a cheeky drink now and again:

Please, No More!
Some people might be frothing at the mouth for any and all Season 7 details they can get their hands on, but not everyone is on board. Most people actually enjoy watching the show unfold each week without the threat of spoilers. In fact, Game of Thrones actor Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) had some rather strong thoughts on the matter:
Her comment was in regard to the entire plot for Game of Thrones Season 7 being allegedly leaked, making the internet a very, very dangerous place for anyone trying to avoid having their viewing experience essentially ruined for them.
It Wouldn't Be The First Time
The Game of Thrones cast may be professionals, but they're also only human. There's been more than one leak from the show's actors in the past— check out these slip-ups:
1. This Is Going On Instagram!
Getting a minor role in Game of Thrones is a pretty exciting moment for an actor. So exciting that you just have to share it with the world via social media. At least, that's what Elie Haddad thought when he literally posted a photo of his script on Instagram halfway through filming.
Haddad played Khal Brozho, a Dothraki who appeared in only one episode. The actor "accidentally" included an entire page of script from Season 6 along with his super Instagrammable morning mug of coffee with a tablespoon sticking out of it. The script revealed the following interaction between Daenerys and the Dothraki Khals, who were eagerly sizing her up:
2. Two Truths And A Lie
It's fine to leak spoilers if you make it a game, right? Some of the Game of Thrones cast had a bit of fun with fans whilst playing a game of "two truths and a lie", which left viewers with more questions than answers. While we didn't know it at the time, some of the spoilers that were revealed were Ramsay's death and Arya's return to Westeros.
3. "It's Only Tits And Dragons"
In the most blatant disregard for spoilers ever, one-episode-wonder Ian McShane was surprisingly candid about the details of his character, Septon Ray. Before Season 6 had even aired, her revealed that his character was "like an ex-warrior who's become a peacenik" who would help bring back "a much-loved character that everybody thinks is dead". Oh, and he also shared the fact that he would die at the end of the episode.
He got quite the reaction from his blatant spoilers, to which he had only one thing to say:
“You say the slightest thing and the Internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think, 'get a f---ing life'. It’s only tits and dragons."
