Game of Thrones had something new to talk about after Sunday’s “The Last of the Starks,” but it was the shock appearance by what seemed to be a Starbucks coffee cup in the first scene that jolted audiences to their core. It was an actual to-go cup of coffee that one of the actors had left on the table before they started shooting? Turns out it’s the latter.
“I can’t believe [it]. Our onset prop people and decorators are so on it. 1,000 percent. I just honestly can’t… Nowadays you just can’t believe what you see, because people can put things into a photo that really doesn’t exist, but I guess, maybe it was there. I’m not sure. We’re sorry! Westeros was the first place to actually have Starbucks. It’s a known fact.”
The producer and her interviewer laughed off the incident, as well as the former’s confirmation and apology. Even so, considering that many different eyeballs usually pore over every single frame of every new episode of a show like Thrones, it’s interesting that Caulfield chose to name the “prop people and decorators” instead of the actors, the producers, or the director when implying responsibility towards anyone involved.
