Emilia Clarke puts forward a new name as suspect in the Game of Thrones coffee cup scandal. Clarke portrayed Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO hit series that captivated audiences for eight seasons, spanning the better part of a decade. Famously based on a the still-unfinished fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones ended in 2019 with an incredibly controversial finale that divided the show’s fan base.
Over its eight seasons, Game of Thrones experienced a lot of press—something many would expect from one of the most popular modern television series. However, one piece of press fans and critics weren’t expecting was the infamous and hilarious Starbucks cup scandal during the final season of the show. In Game of Thrones season 8, episode 4, “The Last of the Starks,” eagle-eyed viewers noticed something awry. About 17 minutes in, in the background of a shot including Clarke, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, and Kristofer Hivju as Tormund, there was a conspicuous Starbucks cup left in the shot. Of course, to everyone’s knowledge, there is no Starbucks in this medieval fantasy saga, giving fans and critics a big laugh at the coffee cup’s appearance. Since then, during press runs for the final season, many of the cast and crew came forward to express their theories of whom the cup belonged to (and to take the heat off of themselves, of course).
When the episode first aired, many jokingly blamed it on Clarke as the cup was closest to her in the scene. Other stars have also been blamed, including Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and more. Since the episode originally aired, the scene was re-edited to remove the cup in all streaming versions of the show. Now, in an interview with theSkimm, Emilia Clarke cleared the air one final time in asserting that the cup wasn’t her’s but actually co-showrunner and co-creator D.B. Weiss’.
“I’m going to say it again for the record: was not mine. Looking at you, Dan Weiss.”
Outside of Game of Thrones, Clarke has been in other films such as Me Before You, Solo, and Last Christmas. Clarke will also play a role in a new MCU series for Disney+, Secret Invasion, which will also star Kingsley Ben-Adir and Olivia Coleman. Secret Invasion will expand upon the story introduced in Captain Marvel and will follow Nick Fury and Talos, the Skrull foe-turned-friend. Still, her role as the Mother of Dragons is sure to always be among her most memorable, and of course, the coffee cup incident one of the few memorable moments on Game of Thrones that didn’t involve a gruesome death.
Though audiences may never know the full truth of the infamous Game of Thrones Starbucks cup incident, it will almost certainly be referenced for years to come. Filming errors can plague any production, but for a big profile production like Game of Thrones, it’s certainly embarrassing to let such a silly mistake slip by unnoticed. It may be corrected now, but fans won’t soon forget. As for Clarke, she seems happy to officially set the record straight and put the hilarious scandal behind her for good.
