Maisie Williams
Was Also Surprised By Arya's Sex Scene In Game Of Thrones
Movies - TV
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for "Game Of Thrones" Season 8.
"Game of Thrones" Season 8 had a lot of fan favorites acting out of character, from Jaime Lannister undoing years of a redemption arc to Tyrion Lannister going from the smartest and wittiest man in the kingdom to a witless fool. Even Daenerys Targaryen — who had been fighting to free people the entire series — just decided to burn down King's Landing.
However, many were especially stunned when Arya had a sex scene, including her actress, Maisie Williams, as she seemed to only have revenge on her mind as the season progressed. However, when faced with death in Season 8, she hooks up with Gendry.
Williams had this to say: "The first time that I was surprised by Arya I guess was probably in the final series where she whips off her clothes and sleeps with Gendry. I thought that Arya was queer, you know?" Regardless, Arya ended the series by sailing off into the sunset and heading for adventures, so even if the sex scene was a misstep, she has plenty of life left to live.
