Is Bella Ramsay as fierce as Lyanna Mormont in real life? You bet.
For several weeks now since Lyanna Mormont appeared on “Game of Thrones” Season 6, the kid behind the role has been the talk of the town.
But why not? If you’re as fierce and badass as “Game of Thrones” star Bella Ramsay, you’ll expect people to talk about you.
In an interview with Making Game of Thrones, Bella Ramsay finally gave fans a glimpse of her true personality and talked about her role, who even with a few lines and there, already managed to make people so interested in her and rally behind her.
You cannot underestimate her — with a few lines, she managed to convinced to make Jon Snow the “King of The North.” According to Telegraph UK, her character is not really in the “Game of Thrones” books. But she’s now on the the show and no one wants her to leave!
Is she aware of her popularity? Appreantly, she is! The 12-year old shared how amazed she was of fans’ reactions, including her family’s and friends’.
“It’s crazy really. I didn’t expect anything like it. I am very, very happy that people like Lyanna Mormont. We had to keep it quiet that I had a part in GoT so now it’s out, my family have had lots of people they know contacting them, really excited they have seen me,” she said.
If fans are wondering how she can be so great on her role at 12, this is because she is so aware of herself and then, at the same time, so familiar with the character she’s portraying. When she got the script for the first time, she already knew she can do Lyanna Mormont so well!
“I thought, “This is a character to really get my teeth into.” Lyanna is strong about what she believes, and wants to keep her family and island protected; she wants to be treated like an adult. She’s strong, and firm when she needs to be, and wants the best for her house and the North,” she explained.
Bella Ramsay said she did not know how important her role will be until it dawned on her out of the blue. “It took me a while to realize it. I actually woke up one morning and the first thing I thought was, “Wow, I really am integral to the storyline,” Bella Ramsay says.
She was also asked if she had a hard time doing the role, and she responded no. This is because being Lyanna Mormont comes “naturally” for “Game of Thrones” actress Bella Ramsay. Wow.
Asked if she wants a direwolf or a dragon for a pet, she answered dragon. Doesn’t sound surprising at all right?
