The Game Of Thrones actor Conleth Hill has denied being responsible for the shows coffee cup blunder.

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 4s 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, theres no proof that I did it. So accuse away!

And the actor quipped: Im just not making any comments until I have a lawyer It definitely wasnt product placement!

Clarke, who was seen as a culprit, previously told Jimmy Fallons US talk show: We had a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth, who plays Varys, whos sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and hes 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.
