“Game of Thrones” season 6 was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. We saw both beloved and hated characters bite the dust, while at the same time were introduced to new ones.
While the new characters ranged from underwhelming to pivotal, none of them garnered as much attention as the little lady from the North. At just 10 years old, Lyanna Mormont has shown that when it comes to politics, age is just a number.
While we first saw her in “Game of Thrones” season 6, Lady Mormont already made an impression back in season 5. In her reply to Stannis Baratheon, the sassy bear lady made it clear that they only know one king, the King in the North whose name is Stark.
“Game of Thrones” season 7
With such acclaim and personality, it is safe to assume that we will see more of Bella Ramsay in the “Game of Thrones” season 7. Her portrayal of Lady Mormont is on par with Iwan Rheon’s role as Ramsay Bolton.
Lyanna Mormont will definitely play a bigger role in “Game of Thrones” season 7 possibly as one of King Jon Snow’s advisers.
We can only hope her popularity doesn’t get her killed, which is something the show is infamous for. “Game of Thrones” is not averse to killing kids either.
Rise To Fame
Fast forward to season 6 when the Stark’s are asking her house for aid, she easily schooled both Jon and Sansa Stark. If not for the diplomatic prowess of Ser Davos Seaworth, House Stark would have not been able to secure their 62 fighting men.
Bella Ramsay talked more about her role in an interview with HBO. “Titled We Know No Scene-Stealer But The One On Bear Island, Whose Name Is Bella Ramsay” an homage to the letter she sent to Stannis. In it she revealed her reasons why Lady Mormont followed Jon Snow and declared him King.
The King In The North!
After the north is reclaimed from the hands of the treasonous Boltons, Lyanna Mormont was also responsible for naming Jon Snow King in the North. She also delivers one of the most iconic lines from A Song of Ice and Fire “The North Remembers.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the line is originally Lord Manderly’s but the show instead chose to give in to Lady Mormont. Paired with an epic tongue-lashing towards the other northern lords, it was definitely a wise decision.
