Lyanna Mormont Returns For More ‘Game of Thrones’

By October 11, 2016


There are plenty of kingslayers on Game of Thrones, or at least so it seems. But there are few actual kingmakers.

One very young character who earned that title in the sixth season finale of the HBO series is on her way back for Season 7, according to Express, meaning the Mormonts are not quite done in Westeros just yet.

Bella Ramsey, the 11-year-old who shined in her screen acting debut as Lyanna Mormont – the head of the Mormont house – has returned after eagle-eyed reporters spotted her on the set of Game of Thrones this week in costume. And also thanks to social media, since Kristofer Hivju (you know, Tormund Giantsbane) shared the news on his Instagram account.

“Look out for this one. Bella Ramsey portrays Lyanna Mormont with such a strength, authority and coolness.”

“She’s super cool and a highly professional actor (at) the age of 11. Can’t tell you if our characters meet or not this season. But I can tell you this: You have so much to look forward to in Season 7.

Lyanna was one of the few house lords who helped Kit Harrington’s Jon Snow assemble an army to take back Winterfell in “Battle of the Bastards.”

Showing how close the Mormon and Stark houses are, Lyanna was actually named for Ned Stark’s sister, who was set to marry the future King Robert, but died just as the Targaryens were defeated. She became lord of the house when her mother died.

Ramsey also is set to appear in the television adaptation of Worst Witch for Netflix, based on the popular book series from author Jill Murphy.
