Arya Stark getting it on with Gendry is one of the most iconic Games of Thrones sequences in a final season packed with unforgettable scenes.
Many people were startled that the hookup happened. Maisie Williams, who portrayed Arya, was one of them.
Williams told Teen Vogue that her character’s decision on the eve of a huge conflict “surprised” her.
“I guess the first time Arya startled me was probably in the final [season] when she took off her clothes and slept with Gendry,” Williams explains. “I was under the impression that Arya was queer, you know?” So… there you go. That was unexpected.”

When the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones premiered, Williams was 22 years old. Arya had never had a love scene before, but she felt it was now or never, given her slim chances of surviving the Battle of Winterfell.
Williams is now starring as Jordan, a punk in FX/Sex Hulu’s Pistols.
