Maisie Williams on that 'Game of Thrones' scene everyone's talking about

Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones showed how every character in Winterfell spent the night before next week's battle against the White Walkers - and Arya Stark certainly blew off some steam.

We are already a couple of episodes into the final season of Game of Thrones, and we are not ready for the horror that lies ahead.

Williams previously discussed this scene and revealed that she originally thought she was being pranked by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. As per the young actress, she thought the sex scene between Arya and Gendry was a prank.

"I'd be doing a read-through and we'd be talking about very graphic stuff", the 23-year-old said. "I need to go to the gym.' A whole list of things", Williams said of the moment she realized the scene was no joke. Although Williams character is only 18 years old in the show, the star turned 22 on 15 April.

Arya stops dead in her tracks, turns, looks him up and down and tells him she doesn't want to die without knowing what it feels like.

"Running to google to check Maisie Williams' age to make sure I didn't break the law by having my eyes open", one Twitter user wrote.

"Game of Thrones" had a little bit of romance in Season 8, episode 2, and it was a relationship that some fans had been waiting years to see.

If you want to catch up or just relive the memories of what came before, seasons 1-7 of Game of Thrones are available here. "I called Maisie and was like: 'Have you read it [the script] yet?'" she said. Being with Gendry meant that, for one night at least, Arya had an experience that put her back in touch with her humanity.

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

"So we just had a lot of fun with it", Dempsie said.

We also got to see the Brienne of Tarth defending Jamie Lannister and requesting Sansa Stark to keep him stay in the Winterfell and reminded her, it is Jamie, who had once saved her life. They're going to go, and they're going to go fast, and I think that the payoff of our characters not being in great peril this year will be that, next year, it's going to be a bloodbath. Plus, I'm only five years older than her anyway, and she's a successful actress on the biggest show of this generation. Williams was 11 when the show started, and we, as fans watched her grow up.
