Turner, who played Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, may have revealed who the real culprit was behind the infamous coffee cup that made it into an episode of Game of Thrones Season 8.
As reported by People, Turner appears on Conan this past Wednesday and defended herself against those who blamed her for the coffee cup that appeared in the fourth episode of the final season of Game of Thrones – “The Last of the Starks.”
“I hear this every day of my life, this coffee cup thing, so it’s good to know that the coffee cup got more press than the final season altogether,” Turner said with a laugh. “The coffee cup was where Kit [Harington]‘s chair was. First I blamed it on Emilia [Clarke], but I don’t think Emilia would do that.”
You know nothing, Kit Harington
“Kit is lazy and I think he would have done that,” Turner proclaimed. “It was in front of Kit’s chair and then obviously he moved and this picture was taken and it looked like it was in my seat, but I wasn’t there either. It was Kit. It was a hundred percent Kit.”
She further defended her honor by telling Conan that another reason she wouldn’t have been the guilty one was her corsets, which had her avoiding drinking too much liquids on set.
“I wear a corset, so I either piss myself or I throw up,” she joked. “Kit doesn’t wear a corset. It’s Kit! And it’s not Emilia, Emilia wears a corset, too. It’s a hundred percent Kit.”
The coffee cup seen around the world
The notorious cup was digitally removed on HBO GO, and HBO issued an appropriately funny response, saying “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
Turner’s husband Joe Jonas, on the other hand, wishes it was him. He said as much during an appearance on First We Feast’s viral celebrity interview show Hot Ones.
His brother, Nick Jonas, thought it would be pretty amazing is Joe was the culprit, saying “that would have been so incredible, if you basically f—ed something up in Game of Thrones.”
While the mystery may have been solved and the coffee cup may have been removed from HBO GO, players of Skyrim will always be able to relive the moment in the game as modders added the Game of Thrones mishap to the game shortly after the episode’s airing
