Sophie Turner says it was Kit Harrington.

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 per cent Kit.”
It all started 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.
