PARIS, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Game of Thrones actor Elie Haddad sent fans into a frenzy by accidentally leaking a script page online.

The 30-year-old French actor, who is expected to play a Dothraki warrior on season 6 of the HBO series, shared a photo of his iPad on Instagram that showed a page of the drama's script.

Haddad has since deleted the image, but screenshots of the post reveal dialogue between two Dothraki about Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), aka Khaleesi. The lewd conversation includes such lines as, "I bet she gets nice and pink when you pinch her."

Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R.R. Martin and will return for a sixth season in 2016. The writer acknowledged the TV show had caught up to the books during a recent talk at Northwestern University.

"The show, of course, has caught up to me, which I didn't actually think would ever happen," the author said. "I had such a huge lead, but the truth is, I'm a very slow writer."

Martin released the fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, in 2011, and is working on the sixth, The Winds of Winter. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss previously told the Oxford Union the show would surpass the books, spoiling some plot details for readers.
