Emilia Clarke previously blamed Conleth Hill for the infamous coffee cup on the Game of Thrones set.
Two years after Games of Thrones viewers first spotted a coffee cup in one of the show’s episodes, Emilia Clarke brought back the issue and another potential culprit.
In 2019, the series became a hot topic after a famous coffee shop’s cup appeared on the table at Winterfell. This time, Clarke named another potential suspect on the notable event.
In a new interview for Skimm’s Texting With, the 34-year-old actress shed a light on her day-to-day life. She also talked about her favorite morning drink.
She clarified that it was not Starbucks. She then segued and recalled the old GoT controversy.
“It’s not Starbucks — spoiler,” Clarke said. “I’m going to say it again for the record: was not mine. Looking at you, Dan Weiss.”
Weiss has been part of the hit series as the co-creator and showrunner. The actress’ recent statement seemingly put an end to the question of who put a disposable cup in one of the episodes.
For what it’s worth, Season 8, Episode 4 of the fantasy TV series showed the cup on the table while John Snow and Tormund Giantsbane talked about their victory against the Night King.
Clarke blamed another actor once
Previously, the actress who played the role of Daenerys Targaryen, told Jimmy Fallon that Colenth Hill left the cup.
In 2019, she revealed that they both attended an Emmys party where the actor, reportedly, confessed.
“He said it. He might have been drunk, but he said it,” Clarke claimed.
However, fans alleged that the actress was the possible culprit as she had been buying from the same shop. A fan shared a photo of the coffee cup and said that “Queen of Meereen and Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea” did it.
The actress openly talked about her love for coffee as well during her 2017 interview with InStyle Magazine. She admitted at that time that finding the perfect coffee played a huge role in the adulting process.
“Find out who you are, what you like, how you take your coffee, the people who make you feel good and who you should be around. You begin to see beyond what your face or body looks like,” the actress went on.
The show’s art director, Hauke Richter, explained that the cup was from a local shop on the Northern Island. The network also apologized for the mistake already.
