Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen, later said co-star Hill, who portrayed the master of spies Lord Varys, had admitted being responsible.
Hill, however, 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.”
“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”.Watch GOT HD QUALITY on HBO NOW in 1 month for FREE!
