AceShowbiz - The steamy scene between Arya Stark and Gendry in the second episode of "Game of Thrones" has received mixed reactions. Some fans shared that they felt unconfortable watching the said scene in "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" which aired on Sunday, April 21. Well, Maisie Williams apparently felt the same.
The British actress, who plays Arya on the hit HBO series, took to Twitter on Tuesday, April 23 to share her response. The 22-year-old actress alluded that what fans were feeling might not quite compare with how she was feeling.
"if u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my step dad and my 1 sisters and my 4 brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe," she wrote.
Fans, however, tried to tell her that the scene was okay and they were happy to see her growing from the first episode to where she is now. "seeing how much you've grown from the first episode to that was like watching my little sister it was so uncomfortable lmao but at the same time, very happy for you. My emotions were all over the place," one fan said.
"Not uncomfortable one bit. Arya has lived more than most of the people twice her age. Get it, girl," another fan commented. Meanwhile, a fan quipped, "If they are uncomfortable, just add them to your list," referring to Arya's list of people she wants to kill. Replying to the comment, another fan cheekily wrote, "Oh, I think Arya's making a brand new list, and it's not for revenge."
Maisie previously revealed that she thought the whole segment was a practical joke staged by showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss.
"I was like, 'Yo, good one,' " she told EW. "And they were like, 'No, we haven't done that (pranked anyone) this year.' I got to the read-through and I'm reading the scene and thought, 'Oh, we're actually going to do this. When do I shoot this? I need to go to the gym!' "
