Were there multiple endings filmed for season 8 of Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones bosses filmed multiple endings for the cult fantasy drama’s big series finale to prevent key plot details leaking online.

The secrecy surrounding the series’ ending was taken to a whole new level.

Producers have even kept cast members in the dark about which characters live or die.

Talking to Vulture, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, revealed that they also shot fake scenes.

She said: "We shoot fake scenes. We got into costume in Croatia because we know the paparazzi lurk around there, so we would spend like half a day doing nothing."

Kit Harington admitted that he cried when he read the final script, and also revealed that there was a secret episode of the show that will never air.

He revealed: "They say, if I ever p**s them off too much, they'll release it on YouTube.

"Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat."

Is everyone going to die in Game of Thrones season 8?

As the final ever episode of Game of Thrones looms ever closer, fans are starting to freak out over the possibility that Winter will win and all the characters we've obsessed over aren't going to make it out alive.

One of the most famous phrases in the show is the high Valyrian saying: 'Valar Morghuli'.

As many of you know, that means, 'All men must die', and it is the customary saying in Essos.

Actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, all but admitted the famous phrase could help the key to the show's ending during an appearance on The Late Late Show.

"We're all going to die. Don't forget 'Valar Morghulis,' which is one of the phrases on the show which means 'all men must die'," he said ominously.

The phrase also has a traditional reply that translates to “all men must serve.”

Could that mean all men must die so they can serve the Night King in his Army of the Dead?
