Variety is reporting that Francesca Orsi, senior vice president at HBO, recounted the table readings for the final few episodes.

"None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started to fall down to their deaths", she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite the final run of Thrones episodes being reduced even more than season 7's batch of just seven, the budget for season 8 is set to clock in at upwards of $15 million per episode. "We are going big".

Adding that HBO are "going big" with their plans for the series ', she said they are keen to make sure the spin-offs live up to the original. The surprise second season renewal of Big Little Lies reportedly came with a significant bump in salary for stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who as THR reports, were able to negotiate significant raises (along with the rest of the women in the cast) based on competing salaries handed out by rival networks.

"We gave the greenlight (for the series) on Friday", Bloys told the audience at the INTV conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

In other words, government schemes where subsidies and benefits are given will have to be linked to Aadhaar by March 31. The top court said the government can not insist on providing Aadhaar , even to issue Tatkal passports.

HBO is planning to give big budgets to the upcoming spinoffs for Game of Thrones. "That's why it spawned three, four, five spinoffs". As Orsi said, "It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it".

The executives also discussed competing with Netflix and its unrivaled spending.

Producers and executives have been notoriously tight-lipped about Game of Thrones since the show's inception, but a particularly fiery panel discussion seems to have hinted at some major spoilers for the show's finale.

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued. However, with only six episodes left of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' series, HBO is branching out with five potential spin-off shows to keep the Game of Thrones legacy alive.
