Game Of Thrones star Conleth Hill has denied being responsible for the show’s coffee cup controversy.

Viewers poked fun at the fantasy epic when a rogue container was spotted on a table during an episode in the final season earlier this year.

Emilia Clarke, 33, who played Daenerys Targaryen, later said co-star Hill, who portrayed master of spies Lord Varys, admitted being responsible.

But the actor, 54, told Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch: ‘I would need to have had Mr Man arms to leave a coffee cup there.

‘I took a bullet for Emilia Clarke and she touted on me.’

He told the show: ‘You know, there’s no proof that I did it. So accuse away!’

And the actor quipped: ‘I’m just not making any comments until I have a lawyer … It definitely wasn’t product placement!’

Clarke, who was seen as a culprit, previously told Jimmy Fallon’s US talk show: ‘We had a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth, who plays Varys, who’s sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I have got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine’.’

The hugely popular fantasy epic finished its eight-season run in May but many fans were left disappointed, signing an online petition calling for a remake of the last episodes with ‘competent writers’.
