April 1 (UPI) -- Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage was on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and said the show has a man who will throw the phone of anyone trying to sneak video or pictures of the show.

Dinklage and Stewart couldn't talk about spoilers at risk of facing the wrath of the show's millions of loyal viewers, so they talked about how they prevent spoilers. Dinklage says that sometimes they have a problem with people lurking near the set with camera phones, but they have a solution for that.

"In Croatia, we have this enormous who -- that's his job to just [mimics pitching phone]. And he will yell at them in Croatian and it sounds terrifying but he will just take your phone and throw it. And it's so refreshing! I wish I had the nerve to that."

Dinklage plays Tyrion Lannister, a witty, intelligent, scheming brother to Queen Cersei (Lena Heady). The show is based on the fantasy series by George R.R. Martin and will premiere its fourth season on April 6.
