A couple of seats over from Daenerys Targaryen on the head banquet desk sits Varys, performed by Conleth Hill. All through the sequence, Varys doesn’t have a lot to do outdoors of capping off Daenerys’ exit from the banquet with an ominous, fearful look on his face. In any case, Varys is at all times excited about the great of the realm and is having some second ideas about whether or not the Mom of Dragons is the most effective candidate to shepherd in that good. Again in 2019, Emilia Clarke went on “The Tonight Present with Jimmy Fallon” and revealed that the espresso cup belonged to an absent-minded Conleth Hill:
“We had, like, a celebration earlier than the Emmys not too long ago. And Conleth, okay, he performs Varys. He was sitting subsequent to me in that scene. He pulls me apart, and he is like, ‘Emilia, I’ve obtained to let you know one thing. I’ve obtained to let you know one thing, love. The espresso cup was mine.’ It was his. It was Conleth’s espresso cup. He mentioned so. He is like, ‘I believe it was. I am sorry, darling. I did not wish to say something as a result of it appeared the warmth was very a lot on you.'”
I by no means purchased that it was Emilia Clarke’s espresso as a result of she’d concentrate on her belongings with reference to her quick area. It makes way more sense that somebody was milling about over there, set down their cup, after which when it was time to begin taking pictures, forgot they positioned it there. Conleth Hill would wish to make his means round to the opposite aspect of the banquet desk to get to his place, so it completely is sensible he left the cup the place he was in between takes. Clarke added, “He might need been drunk, however he mentioned it. So I am gonna take that.” So will I.
