Game of Thrones‘ fans freaked out on Sunday night over Arya sex scene, which was her 1st ever on the series that is currently in its 8th season.
The actress who plays Arya is Maisie Williams and she was 14 years old when the series began back in 2011. She’s basically grown up before our very eyes.
When the series began, Maisie’s character, Arya, is 11 years old, and since the passage of time is a bit confusing on the show, it’s unclear how old she’s supposed to be now.
Fans, who seem to be confused about Maisie’s age trooped to Wikipedia to make confirmations and it was confirmed she is actually 22 years old in real life.
Williams also spoke about the nude scene, admitting she thought it was a prank when she first saw the script, and told the showrunners,
“I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And [they were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.'”
Maisie says producers gave her the option to show as much or as little as she wanted, and what you see in the scene is ultimately what she went with.
