One of the big dramas in the Game of Thrones final season was something unrelated to the plot–a coffee cup was spotted on set. The cup has been digitally erased, but the question still remains: how did it happen and who was responsible?
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, has now revealed that it was none other than Varys actor Conleth Hill who left the cup on the table.
Clarke told Jimmy Fallon that a lot of people blamed her for the gaffe, in part because she was sitting in front of the cup during the scene. But Hill told her that he did it.
“Here’s the truth: We had a party before the Emmys recently, and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys, who is sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside, and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I have to tell you something … the coffee cup was mine!’ It was his! It was Conleth’s coffee cup. He said so,” Clarke said.

The actress acknowledged that Hill might have been sauced when he told her this, but she still thinks it was Hill who left the cup on the table. “I think that’s who did it. He might have been drunk. But he said it,” Clarke said.
Well, there you have it. Now, what about that water bottle?
