Sophie Turner makes shocking NSFW comment about Maisie Williams' sex scene on 'Game of Thrones' season 8
Sophie Turner takes to her Instagram to rep Maisie Williams' sex scene in the second episode of GOT's final season. The content gets a little NSFW.
Anyone who follows 'Game of Thrones' star Sophie Turner on Instagram knows that she isn't afraid to spill some tea. No one can escape her occasional shade sessions and neither could co-star Maisie Williams, who plays her little sister Arya Stark. After the second episode of season 8 aired, Sophie took to her Instagram stories "And that's the Tea", and took the Easter metaphor to a whole other level.
Dressed in a white robe holding a glass of wine, the actress called out the Easter episode and proclaimed, "In honor of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny hop hop hoppin' into that p***y... And that's the tea," before dramatically sipping the wine. She even tagged Williams in the clip.
Turner's excitement goes beyond her Instagram. She was one of the first people to point out the scene to Williams when they first saw the scripts. She told Entertainment Weekly that she called Williams to alert her about the sex scene with Gendry, the second she read the script. “I called Maisie and was like: ‘Have you read it [the script] yet?’” Turner told the magazine. “And she’s like, ‘I’m midway through episode one.’ And I’m like: This scene, this page, read it! This is awesome! She was very happy.”
"Sophie said, 'Whatever you do, you have to skip to this episode, this scene first," Williams said. "So I just read that and it was practically all I knew about the entire season."
Talking about the intimate scene, Williams told EW the actress said, "At first, I thought it was a prank. She added that it sank in she was going to be doing her first sex scene by the final season table read.
"Since it was Williams' first intimate scene as a character on the show, showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss let her decide how the scene would unfold. "David and Dan were like: ‘You can show as much or as little as you want. So I kept myself pretty private," she said. "I don’t think it’s important for Arya to flash. This beat isn’t really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, so...",
After the airing, Williams also took to social media to comment on her sex scene, saying: "if u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my stepdad and my 2 sisters and my 4 brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe (sic)".
