HBO responds to Game of Thrones coffee cup ‘controversy’
Following last night’s episode of Game of Thrones where fans noticed a coffee cup was visible in one of the shots at the beginning of the episode, HBO has released a statement which you can read below!
In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, HBO states: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.” We’ve all been there, right?
Stay tuned for the fifth episode of the season this Sunday night to see what else might pop up before the series comes to a close on May 19!
Based on the popular book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” by George R.R. Martin, the Emmy-winning fantasy series chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom. The series stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.
Executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 8 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger, and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence, and Lisa McAtackney.
The final season of Game of Thrones likely won’t be our last trip to Westeros, as HBO has greenlit a pilot set 1,000 years before the events of the wildly popular sword and sorcery epic. Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast in the prequel series. S.J. Clarkson (The Defenders, Jessica Jones) will direct the pilot.
