Emilia Clarke responds to Game of Thrones Starbucks cup error


‘The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea’

Firstly, if you’ve no idea what that headline means, congratulations! Making it this far into the week without hearing anything about how Game of Thrones somehow managed to leave a Starbucks coffee cup on full view during one of the scenes in its latest episode is actually quite impressive.

Yep, nearly a week on, that rogue Starbucks cup is still getting plenty of air time. The latest update comes courtesy of Emilia Clarke, who has posted her own response to it on Instagram.

Clarke, who plays Daenerys, shared a post of herself, Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage on the set of the HBO show. In her hand can be seen a Starbucks cup. 

‘Did I just stumble upon the truth here?’ she asks. ‘The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea… oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid filming cuppa.’

The post went down a treat with many of the shows fans.

While it seems Emilia Clarke is not the culprit, other GoT fans appear to think Sophie Turner might actually be at fault.

Plenty have circulated a picture of the actress who plays Sansa Stark holding a cup while on set that’s near identical to the one mistakenly left on show in the last episode…
