    And you'll probably also know that the final season of Game of Thrones is hitting our screens next year. So now that there's such little time left before we say goodbye, Sophie has been dishing out some behind-the-scenes secrets, and honestly they're wild.


    Speaking to Vulture, Sophie began by addressing the secrecy the show is shrouded in and how it's achieved. Spoiler alert, this includes giving the show fake names and using "drone killers."


    She said: "The secrecy is crazy. We have a whole different name for [the show] when we’re shooting it. I think this season it was the Tree of Life or something. Our names are also changed on the script and the call sheets. We also have a "drone killer" that shoots down any that fly over the set. I don’t know how it does it. It creates like this field around and the drones just drop."

    And she also explained how sometimes the cast will be required to shoot "fake scenes" in order to trick the paparazzi.

    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.”

    Sophie went on to reveal that she and her BFF both on-screen and off, Maisie Williams, used to have sleepovers after filming wrapped during which they'd "get high" and "sit in the bath together."

    And Sophie concluded by teasing us about what's in store for Sansa in the eighth and final season.


    She said: "Sansa really comes into her own this season. She knows what she wants. She knows what she stands for. She knows who she wants to be around, and she faces threats to that this season. But, well, we’ll see how that goes.”
