Lyanna Mormont, the young leader of House Mormont, only graced the viewers of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 7 with a few minutes, but it was enough for everyone to remember her, like her, love her…and look for her. Who is she?
Lyanna Mormont Actress
Everyone who managed to catch the “as usual” exciting episode of “Game of Thrones” this week had one word to describe the Lyanna — badass.
She plays the niece of former Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch Jeor Mormont and cousin of Ser Jorah Mormont, the right-hand knight of the Dragon Queen.
Her performance though managed to make “Game of Thrones” not care about these TV details and instead, find out more about her personally!
She put the more “seasoned” characters, Sansa Stark and Jon Snow in their places. Her lines (Lady Sansa is a Bolton…or is she a Lannister?”) were just so spot-on and the delivery so sassy, viewers were enthralled.
She did her short scene so superbly, she spawned a whole lot of memes (a sign you did something brilliant these days)!
One of the memes even claimed that Lyanna only got around 5 minutes of screen time but managed to show her leadership skills better than everyone, even Dany, the mother of dragons.
Who is Lyanna Mormont?
But who is she? Apart from being 10-year-old, no one really knows a lot about her. How did she land this newest role in this epic TV series?
Lyanna is actually British child actress Bella Ramsey. A search on IMDB will reveal that this is her first ever role! That speaks volumes of her acting prowess. “Game of Thrones” casting team must have found something special in her, because she’s really a gem of a performer.
If her acting portfolio is currently bare, this is bound to change soon. In fact, she is already set to star in “The Worst Witch” CCBC TV adaptation. She got the lead role of Mildred Hubble.
She will be joined by Nicola Stephensen, who will play Miss Hubble and Raquel Cassidy (Downtown Abbey), who will play Miss Hardbroom.
Now that we know her (a bit), the real question is if we still catch her on the next episodes? Someone so cool should not just vanish after all!
Lyanna Mormont Game of Thrones
According to Telegraph UK, her character is not really in the “Game of Thrones” books. With her pledging loyalty and faith to the House of Stark though, something the Stark badly needs right now, she and House Mormont better be in all the remaining episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6!
