Game of Thrones Season 8 Arya Maisie Williams

As previously reported, the second episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 featured a scene where Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams, has sex with Gendry (Joe Dempsie). While the scene was fairly tame and didn’t feature any explicit nudity, especially compared to some past more edgy content depicted in the show, the sex scene was the subject of a lot of controversy. Some critics argued over the issue of Arya Stark’s age, even though Maisie Williams is 22, and HBO UK put out a tweet listing Arya Stark as 18 before the episode aired. Nonetheless, Williams is having fun over the matter on her Twitter account.

In a tweet this week, Williams joked about other people being uncomfortable watching the scene, noting how uncomfortable she’s feeling that her entire immediate family watched the scene as well.

Williams wrote, “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.” You can check out her tweets on the subject below.

New episodes of Game of Thrones Season 8 are airing on Sunday on HBO. There are only four episodes left.
