Emilia Clarke 'Game of Thrones' Starbucks React

Tuesday, 14 May, 2019

There was a lot to unpack in last Sunday's Game of Thrones.

In her final attempt to take the heat off of herself, she turned to Emilia, who was actually part of the scene in question playing the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

Laughing with embarrassment, Clarke played along, waving to the camera and holding out her hand to Houston Rockets mascot, "Clutch".

Fallon then showed Turner, 23, a photo that had been circulating on social media in the week following the latest Game of Thrones episode.

Clarke didn't directly admit to being responsible for the blunder, but the evidence points in her direction.

Levying an accusation of her own, Turner said: "I'm gonna just go with, I mean look who it's placed in front of. The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea". Though she didn't explicitly say what would happen, she did state: "It f*cked me up".

The "Game of Thrones" coffee cup gaffe may have given Starbucks $2.3 billion in free advertising - even though it didn't belong to the java giant. Emilia Clarke's reaction to Game Of Thrones' Starbucks cup flub that made an accidental guest star appearance in episode 4 is gold.

However, that still pales in comparison to her co-stars Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey who each take home at least $500,000 per episode, Variety reports. Sophie said after she was accused of placing the cup in the scene.

One stunned follower exclaimed: "I see a coffee cup!".

Discussion of the coffee cup culprit begins around the 2:30 mark of the video but honestly, the entire interview is quite the ride.

"Did I just stumble upon the truth here?!" she quipped in the caption.

When the show began, these actors were all being paid $300,000 per episode, but this increased for the last two seasons given the more intense scenes that needed to be shot.
