Stop the presses! The culprit behind the infamous Game of Thrones coffee cup gaffe may have just been officially caught out thanks to Sophie Turner. The North remembers.

Although the show went quickly into damage limitation mode after viewers clocked the rogue coffee cup in Winterfell, viewers are still speculating over who left their tall soy milk latte with an extra shot on set.

Fingers have pointed at Emilia Clarke, Jason Momoa, and even Sophie Turner herself, but Sophie has now insisted that the real cup bearer is... Kit Harington.

In an appearance on Conan, the Sansa Stark actress joked that the coffee cup had "got more press than the final season altogether", before revealing exactly what she thinks happened.

"The coffee cup was where Kit's chair was – first, I blamed it on Emilia, but I don't think Emilia would do that. Kit is lazy, and I think he would've done that," she explained.

"It was Kit, it was 100% Kit!"

Sophie added that it couldn't possibly have been either her or Emilia as they wear corsets on set, which apparently make you "throw up" or "piss yourself" if you eat or drink anything.

Know who doesn't wear a corset, though? Kit Harington.

Despite the series' coffee-related controversy, Sophie says she'd still be thrilled to revisit Game of Thrones in the future.

"Maybe we should do season 9," she mused in a recent interview. "In 20 years, when I'm old and haggard and out of work, I'll definitely be up for a season 9."

Game of Thrones aired on HBO in the US, and you can also catch up on the show via Hulu. Viewers in the UK can catch up via Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
