Maisie Williams Tweets Response To Arya's Game Of Thrones Sex Scene

Are you up to date with everything that has happened so far in the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones? While this article might not contain any major spoilers, there will be discussion about episode two, so maybe don't bother if you're worried about that.

However, if you've managed to make it this far without at least hearing something about that scene between Arya Stark and Gendry, then you've done pretty well and presumably live in space or something.

Well, Arya and Gendry got it on, largely because Arya didn't want to die a virgin.

A lot of people have been saying that it was sort of awkward given that Arya is pretty young looking (the actor Maisie Williams is 22 and her character is supposed to be 18) and they were getting sort of a 'little sister' vibe, given that we've all watched her grow up on the show.

Anyway, now the actor herself has tweeted to address the storm that the scene has started. Williams tweeted: "If u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my step dad and my 2 sisters and my 4 brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe"

Yeah. That's probably fair enough. Nobody wants to be seen having sex - or pretending to - in front of their parents.

Although, when you think about it, that might be pretty on-brand for Game of Thrones.

One member of her 'family' that we definitely know saw the scene was her co-star and on-screen sister Sophie Turner/Sansa Stark.

In fact, Turner shared a bizarre video of herself drinking wine and rambling on about her real-life best friend's sex scene.

She said: "In honour of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the story line to have a little Easter bunny hop, hop, hoppin' into that pussaayyyyyy,

"And that's the tea."

Then she took a big glug of her wine. Very Cersei, Sophie.

Initially, Williams has said that she thought that the showrunners had given her a fake script and that the whole thing was a big prank.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "Sophie said, 'Whatever you do, you have to skip to this episode, this scene first.'

"So I just read that and it was practically all I knew about the entire season."

She continued: "At first, I thought it was a prank.

"I was like, 'Yo, good one.' And [the showrunners were] like, 'No, we haven't done that this year.'

"Oh fuck!"
