The second episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 was aired today and one of the biggest highlights of the episode was Arya Stark's character played by Maisie Williams losing her virginity to Gendry (Joe Dempsie)in a surprising sex scene. Sparks were flying between Arya and Gendry's characters since early on in the show but fans didn't expect to find an intimate scene before one of the biggest battles of their lives against the White Walkers commences. What's interesting is that actress Maisie Williams was also not expecting it. Arya Stark’s Nude Sex Scene With Gendry in Game of Thrones 8 Episode 2 Leaves Fans SHOCKED! Read Tweets (SPOILER ALERT).

In an interview, Maisie stated that actress Sophie Turner who plays her sister Sansa Stark in the series was the first one to inform her about the sex scene and after hearing about it she thought it was a prank. She recalled saying, "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."

Since the makers have pulled off such pranks earlier, Maisie was convinced that it wasn't the truth until she sat for a reading of the episode with everyone. "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 fk!" she told an entertainment portal.

Talking about the nude scene, Maisie said, "David and Dan were like you can show as much or as little as you want, So I kept myself pretty private. I don’t think it’s important for Arya to flash. This beat isn’t really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, she told Entertainment Weekly.Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 Promo: Jon Snow and Arya Stark Are Bloodied and Scared in the New GoT Footage – Watch Video.

The actress even talked about how the makers made sure she was comfortable while filming the scene. After the episode leaked last night, Arya and Gendry's sex scene was all over the internet in no time. It also left several fans feeling uncomfortable mainly because they had seen Arya's character as a child from Season one.
