Sophie Turner took home “a huge spoiler” from the Game of Thrones set

All the Game of Thrones cast members are hitting the press trailer ahead of the final season of the show, and some of them are saying the darndest, most intriguing things. Take this video interview from Channel NewsAsia, which sat down with the likes of Sophie Turner (Sansa), Maisie Williams (Arya), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Carice van Houten (Melisandre), Liam Cunningham (Davos), Rory McCann (the Hound) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion). They talk about their first days on set, their last days on set, and what they “liberated” from the set. Most is just good fun, but there’s at least one intriguing nugget in there.

Unsurprisingly, pretty much everyone cried on their last day on the job, even people who don’t cry often, like Carice van Houten. I’ll bet it was particularly hard to watch Ser Davos break down. “I tried not to [cry], but I couldn’t keep it together,” Cunningham remembered.

Sophie Turner also bawled. Her tale is particularly interesting:

"If was like a five-day shoot that we were on, like for this one scene…Every time they would yell ‘cut,’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, this might be it, this might be it.’ And then they’d be like, ‘Another setup!’ And so I’d have to touch my tears and be like, ‘Okay, don’t cry yet.’"

That’s emotional and everything, but what’s intriguing is that she mentions they were on a five-day shoot for one scene. That’s an unusually long time to spend on a scene that isn’t a battle, so you know it’s gonna be important. My bet is that it’s whatever a critical mass of cast members shot in Seville.

The cast members also revealed what props they took home from the set. Cunningham nabbed a Dothraki sword and the wooden stag Davos gave to Shireen (both the burned and non-burned versions), Dormer took home Beric’s eyepatch (and would like his sword, please), and Williams snagged a bunch of Faceless Man coins as well as a breakable stick she used to attack Joffrey way back in season 1. Good times:

But once again, Turner’s response is the most interesting. “I kept a scroll,” she said. “Bryan from props gave it to me on my last day.”

"But it’s a huge spoiler for the show, for season 8, so I’ve kept it away in the depths of my wallet, never to be seen by anyone."

A scroll, huh? And presumably one that means something to Sansa. What kind of scroll could come into play in a major way in season 8, do you think? Maybe it’s the scroll that shows that Jon is the trueborn son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, that Sam and Gilly could have brought back from the Citadel? That’s the first thing that comes to my mind, anyway. Discuss below!
