Bella Ramsey didn't expect fans to like Lyanna Mormont

Most fans of the Game of Thrones series really like the feisty little maiden commonly known as Lyanna Mormont, and exceptionally so because of her indomitable spirit and her fiery speeches which can bring even the dead back to life, metaphorically speaking of course.

However, the actress behind the character, Bella Ramsey was apparently quite surprised at the fact that fans really liked her character as disclosed in an interview. Apparently, the young actress doesn’t have a habit of watching shows she has helped film and doesn’t even know the results of the efforts she has put in. Furthermore, she even said that she expected the fans to dislike her character instead of adoring it.

“I was petrified when it came out, as I expecting people to hate what I’d done and not like Lyanna,” said Ramsey. “I was scared I’d be received in a bad way. I was very shocked people liked my performance.”

Lyanna Mormont is officially returning to Game of Thrones season 7!

As per the actress, she is too scared to watch herself perform and the results which it yields, which comes as quite a surprise given the talent of the young extraordinaire. She admits to being a fan of the series and to being pretty excited about the final season of the show as well, however, she says that she never watches her own scenes in the show and skips them altogether. She further revealed that she has also managed to keep in touch with a few actors from the show, Kit Harrington or the actor behind Jon Snow being one of them.

“He always said [to go to him] if I want some bad advice, but I don’t think his advice is bad!” remarks Ramsey jovially. “When I went to the Baftas I asked him about live interviews, what advice he would give, and he said, ‘just be yourself and don’t try to say what you think people want you to’. That’s the best advice you can give.”

Bella further revealed that she would rather choose to be a successful actress than a famous celebrity, which seems to be a much better and peaceful choice for the young, sensible lady. She seems to have taken Harrington’s advice to heart and doesn’t like to cater to the crowds and get involved in as much of the politics behind fame as other actors do and rather choose to follow the path of an artist instead.

“When Game Of Thrones came out lots of interviews were coming in and people asking me to do certain things which would push me out there. Like this whole Instagram and Twitter thing, getting more followers doesn’t bother me at all,’ she said, non-plussed about the whole fame game,” said young Bella. “So I held off from doing interviews because I want my life to be my own. I think we could have pushed it more and I could have been more of a celebrity, but that isn’t something I wanted to do.”

Well, now the young, talented actress knows better about how her fans perceive her and might probably be less scared about watching her own scenes as she returns in the latest upcoming final season of the epic Game of Thrones saga set to be released this April 14.

Emilia Clarke calls Game of Thrones Season 8 backlash flattering, again

Game of Thrones stars have been faced with questions about their reactions about the ending of the show, and they don’t seem to stop. Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys, has had a very positive response before, calling it flattering, and now she’s called it fragile again, in a recent interview. Read on!

Emilia has previously called previously called the Season 8 backlash “profoundly flattering”, and that seems to have become her go-to answer now, when asked about it. She was recently on This Morning to promote her new film, Last Christmas, where she discussed the backlash that Game of Thrones Season 8 received, repeating her previous comments:

“On every level, it’s just profoundly flattering that people genuinely cared that much and they were with us for that long and that they really, truly believed in it.”

She continued:

“I don’t read anything online really because it doesn’t help my brain, but largely speaking I think people are being really kind about Daenerys and Mother Dragon and backing me up, so that’s lovely.

I don’t think there’s an ending that anyone could’ve written. No matter how many signatures were on any bit of paper, you just can’t and that is really just so flattering.”

Well, what do you guys think? Was your backlash supposed to be flattering? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Would love to play James Bond in case of a gender switch, says Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones stars have a lot of opportunities going forward, because of how successful the show was. While Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys, recently said she doesn’t want to do big franchise projects anymore, there seems to be one franchise that could entice her. Read on!

In a recent interview with Empire, Emilia was asked if she would like to step into the role of James Bond, and she had a very positive response:

“Yeah! Of course! Hell to the yeah.”

She continued:

“James Bond is one of those franchises where it’s never not cool. You could literally make the naffest James Bond in the world and it would still be cool.”

Emilia also reflected on the luxuries that her part on Game of Thrones has fetched her, and how it has motivated her to launch her own production house:

“I’ve had the good fortune of being in this incredible show with this incredible character. And, my goodness, if I were to get stereotyped as the mother of dragons, I could ask for worse. It’s really quite wonderful.”

She went on:

“But what it’s left me with — after 10 years of seeing that, and being a part of that, and of doing quite big movies in my hiatuses and all of those things — is a yearning for a different sort of creative ownership.”

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Emilia as Bond? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Here’s where Emilia Clarke thinks Drogon went at the end of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones ended with a bad fate for Emilia Clarke‘s Daenerys Targaryen. We saw Drogon fly off with his mother’s corpse, and we have since then had a question: where did Drogon fly off to? Well, Emilia has a theory about that. Read on!

In the series finale of Game of Thrones, we had to see Jon Snow betray Daenerys, and Drogon, late to the party, rage for a while and then simply fly off with a dead Daenerys. Emilia Clarke recently did a lie detector interview with Vanity Fair, which makes for a pretty great watch. Of course, she discussed Daenerys and her fate at the end of Thrones. Watch the full 18 minute video, below:

She was asked about who her favourite dragon of the three dragon children, to which she replied:

“Drogon is kind of like, he’s my oldest boy, who was the first, really. When the three of them came out, I think he came out first.”

She was then asked if she knew where Drogon was headed, to which she had the best response:

“I’d like to think he went to Hawaii. I know there is a specific place where dragons go [that’s in the books]. Otherwise he’s just roaming the seas. Crying.”

Well, if only Bran the Broken could verify this. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, below!
