One of the most memorable Game of Thrones scenes in a final season full of memorable scenes was Arya Stark getting it on with Gendry.

Many were surprised that the hookup took place. Not the least of them was Maisie Williams, who played Arya.

Williams told Teen Vogue she was “surprised” by her character’s choice on the eve of major battle.

“The first time that I was surprised by Arya, I guess, was probably in the final [season] where she whips off her clothes and sleeps with Gendry,” Williams says

Williams was 22 years old when the final season aired on HBO.  Arya hadn’t had any love scenes to that point, but decided it was then or never, given the stiff odds of surviving the Battle of Winterfell.

Williams currently costars as punk Jordan in FX/Hulu’s Sex Pistols chronicle Pistol.

“I thought that Arya was queer, you know? So… yeah. That was a surprise.”

In a new “Teen Vogue” Firsts interview, “Game of Thrones” actress Maisie Williams revealed that she thought her character Arya Stark was queer.
