People firstly need to chill out about Arya Stark and Gendry's sex scene in Game of Thrones season 8's second episode. Ever since the second episode aired, the internet has flipped out over the sex scene between Arya Stark and Gendry. Obviously, having known Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya, to b a young girl, nobody expected her to grow up so soon. But looks like she ensured to keep her big family up to date with the sex scene that was about to happen in the episode.
Taking to Twitter, Maisie Williams stated, "If u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my stepdad and my 2 sisters and my 4 brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe." Is she awesome or what? Apparently, as the script came over to Maisie, she thought that the sex scene was a prank played by the makers David Benioff and Dan Weiss. However, that's wasn't the case as they sent the legit script typing down exactly what they wanted her to do.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the young actress quoted, “I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And [the showrunners were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.’ Oh f—k!” She further added, "I got to the read-through and I’m reading the scene and thought, ‘Oh, we’re actually going to do this. When do I shoot this? I need to go to the gym.’ A whole list of things. 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, so…"
Turns out, she received a phone call from her best friend Sophie Turner too who seems to have tipped her off about the sex scene. Recounting the call, Sophie revealed, "I called Maisie and was like: ‘Have you read it yet?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m midway through episode one.’ And I’m like: This scene, this page, read it! This is awesome! She was very happy." Well, Arya Stark is no more the young girl we know of any more!
