In a season full of unforgettable moments, Arya Stark and Gendry’s steamy scene stands out.
People couldn’t believe the couple actually hooked up. Maisie Williams, who played Arya, was certainly not the least of these.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, Williams admitted that she was “surprised” by her character’s decision right before a major battle.
According to Williams, “the first time that I was surprised by Arya” was when she “whips off her clothes and sleeps with Gendry” in the final season. “I always assumed Arya was a lesbian. Anyway, so. That caught me off, guard.
When the series finale aired on HBO, Williams was only 22 years old. Given the high stakes at the Battle of Winterfell, Arya decided it was now or never before she had a love scene.
In the first season of Game of Thrones, Arya claims to be 11 years old. If each season of Game of Thrones represents a year in real life, then Arya would be 18 years old at this point. Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, is only 22 years old in real life.
Character, Younger Sibling To Robb Stark
The younger sister of Robb Stark (Richard Madden), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), and Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) was a fan favorite because she was a headstrong woman who refused to conform to societal expectations by training to become a warrior.
Williams stated that while she misses filming on “Game of Thrones,” she has no immediate plans to watch the final season.
Despite how much I enjoyed it, I don’t think it’s good for me to miss it. I think of it often, and always with great affection and pride. But why on earth would I want to bring myself down over the best thing that ever happened to me? To me, that brings back bad memories of suffering.
There is no spinoff in the works, but the actor has stated that she would only return to the series if the circumstances were ideal.
In an interview, he said, “I’m not saying (a revival) would never happen, but I’m also not saying it so that everyone goes, ‘The spinoff!'” It’s on the way! Simply put, it’s not. It must be the right moment with the right people. It must make sense within the larger canon of ‘Game of Thrones’ and its various spinoffs. For me, the timing must be perfect.
Williams’s next FX appearance will be in Danny Boyle’s Hulu series Pistols. Boyle is best known for directing the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.
The Sex Pistols is a drama set in 1970s London that tells the story of how the band formed. Williams’ character on the show is punk model Jordan.
