How will the HBO hack affect the future of ‘Game of Thrones’?

Game of Thrones’ action-packed penultimate season is the victim of a cyber attack, with hackers leaking episodes days before they’re set to air.

Though the spoilers haven’t affected viewership — the fantasy series actually hit a ratings high — the cast could face unforeseen consequences, star Nickolaj Coster-Waldau revealed on EW Morning Live.

“We get a call, ‘They have all your information, and we’re not sure what’s gonna happen,'” Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, recalled of his conversation with security experts. “‘What do you mean, you don’t know what’s gonna happen?’ ‘Well, we don’t know what’s gonna happen, but they have everything.'”

Given the show’s commitment to secrecy, he predicts all the actors will once again get their scripts hand-delivered.

“Just give us the hard copies instead of all this email and digital stuff,” he said.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on HBO.

Hear EW Morning Live weekdays from 8-10 am ET on SiriusxM Entertainment Weekly Radio (Ch. 105).
