Speaking to The Times recently, Gemma Whelan, who plays Yara Greyjoy, discussed coming onto the show in season two. But it turns out she was nearly fired right out of the gate, because she spoiled her casting online.

Gemma recently revealed her audition for Game of Thrones was a little humiliating because she misunderstood what she was supposed to do while acting out a test scene with her onscreen brother, played by Alfie Allen. "We nearly cant employ you because of this", Whelan says.

"The first lesson I learnt was when I first got the job. No-one told me to keep quiet about it", she said.

"Game Of Thrones" fans stand a chance to witness their favourite show's sets, props, medieval costumes and more as HBO is bringing a worldwide "Touring Exhibition" of the popular fanatsy drama.

"The internet went nuts", Whelan said. As a result, she posted her latest role online to her resume, causing a frenzy among fans and almost preventing her from playing Theon's (Alfie Allen) sister and the wannabe queen of the Iron Islands. So it crosses the board. "You might get given rehearsal notes on set, but you have to sign for and return them before you leave".

Even if you're a casual fan of Game of Thrones, you'll know that the production team behind the show is suuuuuper serious about filming spoilers, especially as the show diverges from the A Song of Ice and Fire books. Since that time, producers and cast are required to keep notoriously silent on news to fight as many possible leaks that could spoil the upcoming seasons.
