Maisie Williams talks sex scene
18-year old actress Maisie Williams has opened up on how she felt acting her first ever sex scene.
Williams, who plays Arya Stark in popular series Game Of Thrones, starred in a new indie movie titled The Falling.
In the movie, Williams portrays Lydia, a student at an all-girls boarding school in 1960s England.
Her character in the movie loses her virginity, her first sex scene ever, and she thanked co-star Joe Cole for making it easy for her.
“It was extremely awkward! But Joe was very sensitive to the fact that I had never done a scene like this before, and it was great to work with someone who was so considerate of that,” she shared.
“We went out for a couple of lunches and stuff just to get to know each other, and we had days of rehearsal where we’d get to know our characters and spend a couple of hours with each other. So I knew him quite well, and we got along quite well. It all paid off in the end,” she said.
“I was only just 16, so it was quite a big deal. And I guess you just work through it like any other scene and you rehearse, and then you shoot it!” Williams said, contrasting it with other experiences. “We watch them on TV and we’re just like, yeah whatever. But when you actually in that position, you’re like, s**t this is a really big deal!” she joked.
She was however delighted with the opportunity to act outside the Game of Thrones franchise.
“The reason I wanted to play Lydia in the first place was that she’s such a different character than Arya,” she stated.
