Maisie Williams Points Out What Made 'Thrones' Sex Scene Extra Awkward

Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams

On a show filled with rape and sexposition, we have rarely gotten intimate sex scenes between consenting adults without coercion, lies, or there being a "they're related" twist over the moment, which is why this episode's sex scene was a very positive change. "I called Maisie and was like: 'Have you read it [the script] yet?'" she said.

But we gather there isn't a huge age gap and, as Arya is at least 18, it's all perfectly legal, so chill guys!

But pretty quickly, I recognized those thoughts for the excuses that they were. Viewers had no problem with 16-year-old Jon Snow having sex in caves, or 16-year-old Robb Stark getting married and falling in love with the first plot device he saw.

This is exactly what we needed-and we didn't know we needed it. I was a 25-year-old man.

This double standard is everywhere in our society.

Given how many likes and re-Tweets the Tweet has, it's clear that a large portion of the fanbase agrees with her. Condoms are relatively easy to get, but when feminists tried to remove age restrictions on female-controlled contraception such as Plan B, they met widespread political resistance.

She knows that King Robert was her own beloved father's best friend. Since arriving home, Arya has slowly started to reclaim bits and pieces of herself she lost.

There was some discomfort on social media with a nude Arya whom many watched grow up on the screen.

By the time the scene was being read aloud at the final season table read, Williams accepted that, yes, Arya was going to sleep with Gendry on the eve of the great Winterfell battle against the Army of the Dead. After seasons and seasons of her becoming increasingly feral, this experience with the character Gendry is one that helped bring her back to her more human side.

The actor who plays Podrick, Daniel Portman, was 21 when the brothel scene aired, a full year younger than Williams now. Time has warped Sansa as much as has Arya.

On the other hand, however, vengeful and wayward characters who temporarily focus on their humanity are often set up to take unforeseen falls.

A girl like's what she sees.
