Sophie Turner seems to know who could possibly be responsible for the coffee cup glitch that happened in one of the episodes of 'Game Of Thrones 8'. While HBO later digitally removed the cup, the question remains - who was responsible for it? 

Turner feels it was Kit Harrington. During her latest appearance on `Conan`, Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark in the insanely popular HBO series, defended herself against the people who think it was she who left the cup on the table.

Stating that she has been hearing about the cup every day since the episode was aired, she finally put the blame on Kit Harington."The coffee cup was where Kit (Harington)`s chair was," she told host Conan O`Brien. Earlier, during an episode of `The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon`, Turner blamed fellow star Emilia Clarke for the mess.

However, after careful observation, the `X-Men` actor changed her mind. "First I blamed it on Emilia (Clarke), but I don`t think Emilia would do that," she said. Asserting that Kit is lazy, she said, "Kit is lazy and I think he would have done that. It was in front of Kit`s chair and then obviously he moved and this picture was taken and it looked like it was in my seat, but I wasn`t there either. It was Kit. It was a hundred percent Kit."

The makers received major flak when a Starbucks cup made a special appearance in Winterfell in episode 4 of the last season titled `The Last of the Starks` and it instantly became the talk of the town.

While some angry fans slammed the makers for their carelessness, others, including many celebrities flooded social media with jokes and memes.
