In EW’s exclusive look at theSkimm’s Texting With, the actress adds another suspect in the ongoing saga.

EW: After nearly two years, Emilia Clarke appears to be reigniting the mystery of who left a coffee cup in a scene from the final season of Game of Thrones.

While answering questions for theSkimm’s digital series, Texting With, Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO series, addressed that infamous paper coffee cup that was spotted by eagle-eyed fans in front of the queen during a feast at Winterfell in “The Last of the Starks.”

Clarke brought up the subject herself when she found herself answering a question about her morning drink of choice during the Texting With episode, which EW has an exclusive look at below.

“It’s not Starbucks – spoiler,” she said. “I’m going to say it again for the record: was not mine. Looking at you Dan Weiss.”

Weiss, an executive producer of GoT alongside David Benioff, didn’t take credit for the hot beverage in an excerpt (via The Hollywood Reporter) from James Hibberd’s book, Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon.

“I’d seen that shot one thousand times, and we’re always looking at their faces or how the shot sat with the shots on either side of it,” Weiss said in the book. “I felt like we were the participants in a psychology experiment, like where you don’t see the gorillas running around in the background because you’re counting the basketballs. Every production that’s ever existed had things like this. You can see a crew member in Braveheart; there’s an actor wearing a wristwatch in Spartacus. But now people can rewind things and everybody is talking to each other in real time. So one person saw the coffee cup, rewound it, and then everybody did.”

With that said, previously, during a visit to NBC’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in Oct. 2019, Clarke actually singled out another cast mate instead – Conleth Hill, who played Lord Varys.

“Here’s the truth. We had like a party before the Emmys recently, and Conleth [Hill], kay? He plays Varys. He’s sitting next to me in that scene. He pulls me aside and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I’ve got to tell you something. I’ve got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine.’ It was his. It was Conleth’s coffee cup. He said so,” she told Fallon.

Others, though, like Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, visited Fallon and suggested it was Clarke’s.

No matter whose it was, the cup was quickly edited out of the scene, with HBO releasing a statement at the same time: “In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones… The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”

Watch EW’s exclusive video from theSkimm to find out which storyline from GoT Clarke would’ve changed, and the Friends star she freaked out over after they commented on one of her Instagram posts.

TheSkimm’s Texting With Emilia Clarke debuts on theSkimm’s Instagram and at theskimm.com Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.

SYFY – HBO’s Game of Thrones wasn’t your average fantasy epic. It was grim, dirty, violent, and sexual. In fact, it had such frequent and graphic nudity that it helped coin the phrase “sexposition” when referring to plot exposition being doled out by a nude character. But according to a new book, the experiences of the cast in these intimate scenes left plenty to be desired — especially in the hit show’s early, scrappy days.

James Hibberd’s new oral history Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon: Game of Thrones and the Official Untold Story of the Epic Series digs into this plenty, including interviews with everyone from Khal Drogo’s Jason Momoa to Cersei’s body double, Rebecca Van Cleave. Few were complementary to the series’ handling of its sex scenes, most of which took place long before HBO mandated hiring intimacy coordinators for all its shows in 2018.

Momoa took first-time showrunners D. B. Weiss and David Benioff’s unprofessional handling of the situations in stride, though he needed to sometimes refuse their requests. Momoa recalled a time while shooting a Season 1 sex scene when he placed the intimacy pouch (which covers an actor’s genitals in nude scenes) in Benioff’s hand: “That was because David had been like, ‘Momoa, just take it off!’ You know, giving me s***. ‘Sacrifice! Do it for your art!’ I’m just like, ‘F*** you, bro. My wife would be pissed. That’s for one lady only, man.'”

Momoa added: “So afterward I ripped the thing off and kept it in my hand and gave him a big hug and a handshake and was like, ‘Hey, now you have a little bit of me on you, buddy.'”

His scene partner, Daenerys Targaryen actress Emilia Clarke, has spoken at length about her uncomfortable experiences doing nudity on the show. “Because Jason had experience — he was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this — he was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be, this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that that’s the f***ing gaze,’ Clarke said on the podcast Armchair Expert. “He was always like, ‘Can we get her a f***ing robe? She’s shivering!’ … He was so kind and considerate and cared about me as a human being.”

“I was so desperate to be the most professional actor I could be that I’d be like, ‘Yeah, sure,’ for anything they threw at me,” Clarke said in Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon. “I’ll just cry about it in the bathroom later, whatever, you won’t know.”

The actress, who appeared fully nude in sex scenes and when Daenerys is “reborn” in fire alongside her dragons, spoke about the pressures of being an actress fresh from drama school on that set. “Those were tough days,” she said of the first season, adding, “I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up.’”

Misleading promises from production reportedly ranged from people sneaking onto a closed set to a supposedly closed set being thrown wide open. Hodor actor Kristian Nairn remembered during his Season 1 nude scene (“probably the most traumatic day of my life,” he previously said), when a prosthetic was worn because there was a child in the scene. Alas, things did not go as planned.

“I was s*** scared, but I did it because of the whole body-positive thing — Game of Thrones has a lot of people of different shapes and sizes, probably more than any other show ever,” Nairn said. “It was a very busy day on set, which was the opposite of what they told me. I’ve never seen a busier set!”
