Emilia Clarke Puts Game of Thrones’ Coffee Cup Rumours to Rest, Reveals Actual Culprit

Emilia Clarke was earlier blamed by Sophie Turner for being the one to leave the Starbucks coffee cup in the scene, however, the former has now shared who it actually belonged to

Game of Thrones came to an end after a blockbuster and record-shattering 8 seasons, but the controversies still live and discourse over them makes good chatter over tea. One of the many iconic mistakes in the show came during the last season of the epic drama where a Starbucks espresso mug was seem amidst a festival scene in Winterfell. Fans went wild when they discovered the cup and the actors were bombarded with questions of who did it. But finally it seems like the real culprit has been named by Emilia Clarke, who played the Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen in the show.


During her appearance in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the actress revealed the name of the person who she thinks was responsible for the deed but stayed silent to avoid the heat. “We had a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth Hill, who plays Varys, who’s sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I’ve got to tell you something. I’ve got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine!’” shared Emilia. “It was his! It was Conleth’s coffee cup. He said so,” she then exclaimed.

Emilia further said that Conleth confessed that he didn’t tell her before. She continued, “He said he didn’t want to say anything at the time because ‘the heat was very much on you’ and I was like ‘What?’ So that’s who I think that did it. Well, he told me he did it but then he might have been drunk.” Earlier, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, had put the blame of Emilia for making the mistake and forgetting the cup. She later revised her version by saying that Kit Harington, who plays Sansa’s half-brother Jon Snow in the show, was responsible for the act.
