In the episode "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms", the youngest of the Stark clan is sexually involved with Gendry (Joe Dempsie). The scene has generated some controversy in social networks and Google searches on the age of the actress and her character have increased.
For some of the fans of the series based on the saga of George R.R. Martin, the character, who was initially introduced as a child, is still underage due to his youthful appearance. But on Twitter, HBO of the United Kingdom made a point of stressing that Arya Stark is over 18 years old.
Before the episode went on air, the streaming service published a list of things the inhabitants of Westeros should do at age 18. "At 18, in Westeros, you must: have had a pet, have changed marriages, have traveled extensively, have created a list of targets to kill, pretend to be of the opposite gender to avoid being abducted, have been blind for a while, to have murdered at least three people on his list of targets, "he told HBO UK.
Maisie Williams, actress who dresses the skin of Arya Stark, is 22 years old. The young woman made her debut in "The War of the Thrones" at age 11.
