Ayra Stark sleeps with Gendry in Game of Thrones

If one person's happy that Arya Stark had her first ever Game of Thrones sex scene, it's Sophie Turner.

The co-star of Maisie Williams posted a message to Instagram following the broadcats of the eighth and final season's seond episode, which included a scene that saw Arya have sex with Gendry (Joe Dempsie).

Arya made her feelings known for the Baratheon blacksmith after he made her dragonglass weapon for her. She told him she wanted to "know what it feels like" in face of potential death in next week's battle against the White Walkers.

Turner, who plays Arya's sister Sansa, said - while swigging wine in pure Thrones fashion: “In honour of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny hop hop hoppin’ into that p****."

Williams revealed that it was her close friend Turner who broke the news to her after she raced ahead and read the scene before she'd had a chance. The 22-year-old actor also claimed she thought the scene was a prank being played on her by showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss.

However, the sex scene proved controversial for some viewers who were left feeling confused about Arya's age.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Arya was almost part of an incestuous relationship that’s impossible to comprehend.

The trailer for next week's episode teases the 90-minute battle that's being touted as the biggest ever filmed for television.
