Maisie Williams reveals what it's really like filming sex scenes and her comments will make you cringe

Maisie Williams is best known for her role as Arya Stark on the HBO TV series Game of Thrones. But she's also been working on a new indie film, The Falling, and the role included filming some very awkward sex scenes.

Speaking during an interview with Vulture, Williams revealed how terribly awkward filming her first ever sex scene was — but luckily her co-star was a godsend.

"It was extremely awkward! But [co-star] Joe [Cole] 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."

So how did she prepare for the scene? By having lunch dates with her co-star, of course.

"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.

Awkward sex scenes aside, Williams also spoke about her new character, Lydia, and how she differs from Arya.

"The reason I wanted to play Lydia in the first place was that she's such a different character than (sic) Arya. When I look at scripts, I always worry that the director isn't going to see past me playing Arya Stark or that sort of character," she explained. "So I fought for this role, and [director] Carol [Morley] was really open to letting me try out. She really gave me a chance, and I'm so grateful for that…"

We, for one, can't wait to see Maisie Williams in The Falling.
