In accordance with Emilia Clarkeher experience in Game of Thrones (from which, as we remember, a lot of things always leaked in advance, even entire series) shaped her to such an extent that the passage in Marvel seems simple to her: “I’ll tell you what, it’s much easier now because whenever a topic comes up or people ask me questions, I just keep saying, ‘Hey, this is Marvel. I can not say anything”.
In fact, Clarke has revealed how Marvel’s stringent security measures to prevent leaks have affected her long before she joined the MCU. “As we filmed the last few seasons of Game of Thrones, there were major security changes.” tells. “I was talking to (showrunners) David (Benioff) and Dan (Weiss) and they said, “Marvel. We’re just learning from Marvel. Whatever Marvel does, we want to do it.” At this point, they started to stop printing anything from scripts. OURo and Peter Dinklage were desperate, we were saying, “We need paper! We can’t learn lines without them on paper!”.
When she joined the cast Secret Invasion as an adult version of G’ia, the daughter of Skrull leader Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Clarke had a Zoom meeting with Marvel security that “scared” her to say the least. “I thought, “Someone he’ll come and kill me if I say anything'”, recalls the actress, adding that she came to remove sim card from phone in the first few days of filming because she was afraid the fans would track her down.

Jackson always says that even in the days of the Avengers, there was no shortage of madness. “Someone printed a copy of my script with my watermark and put it up for sale online. I was filming in Canada and Marvel was looking for me there. It was printed in production … They found out who it was, the guy was fired and he fled the country. They staged a fake script purchase, and that person didn’t show up. Crazy stuff!”
