Everybody loves little Lyanna Mormont for her courage and sass. But did you know, the teenager who plays her in Game of Thrones is just as badass? Bella Ramsey told The Cut in a recent interview that the one thing she’ll miss about the show is the chance to shame grown men in their face.
This innate fierceness is what endeared Lyanna Mormont to Ramsey as well as the audience. When asked what she would miss most about Game of Thrones she said,
“I think the opportunity to stand up in front of a load of grown men and shame them. I think playing confident characters also helps with your own confidence. Say you’re in a situation where you’re feeling anxious or nervous—you can become a character and work through it that way. I’ll miss that about her.”
In Episode 1 Season 8, Ramsey’s character is the only one in the North who dares to openly question Jon Snow’s decision to bend the knee. It mirrored the scene in Season 6 where Lady Mormont stood up before a room full of men and proclaimed Jon King in the North. Then too she was unafraid to question men far older than her.
Both Brienne and Arya are strong female characters and Ramsey says she feels that Lyanna has an affinity of spirit with both of them. Ramsey said, like them, Lyanna is strong – “mentally, physically, personality-wise … I like how she sticks up for what she believes in, no matter the cost or the consequences.”
However, Ramsey has always been surprised by the love her character received, because she wasn’t sure about her performance at all. She exclaimed,
“I wasn’t sure whether people would like her or not, because she’s quite a unique character. But I’m very glad and very grateful that people do like her.”
Well, Lyanna is unique for sure. It seems so is Ramsey. More power to her!
Game of Thrones ending will upset some fans, says Sophie Turner while promising a “very satisfying” end for Sansa
Game of Thrones Season 8 finale drops in a few hours, and we are getting some last minute teases right about now. As one of the very few characters who have made it to the end, the fans have been awfully proud of Sansa Stark, and it seems like she will have a good ending, if Sophie Turner, who plays the character, is to be believed. Read on!
Sophie spoke to The Sunday Times Magazine about how the ending of the show might not please everybody. Speaking of her attachment to Sansa, she said:
“I’ve had a bit of an identity crisis to be honest, I’ve grown up for so many years as this character. If I wasn’t filming, I was promoting it, if I wasn’t promoting it then it was on TV. I was immersed in Sansa, so finally stepping out of it, I don’t actually know what I like to do or who I really am.”
She then went on to tease the finale of the show:
“It’s a great ending, from my perspective, it’s very satisfying. But I think a lot of people will be upset too.”
Well, given the show’s massive fan following, that was probably always bound to happen. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
Game Of Thrones might get over in a few hours but we have some big plans for the community once the show ends. Please visit our newly started Patreon page to read about our plans.
Nicholas Hoult auditioned to play Jon Snow in Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has had a respectable star cast, ranging from the young first-timers to the industry veteran actors. Over the past few years, we have heard of a lot of actors who auditioned for different parts on the show but didn’t land the roles. The latest of the bunch is Nicholas Hoult, who auditioned for the role of Jon Snow. Read on!
Nicholas Hoult was recently at the Montclair Film Festival, for the screening of his latest film, Tolkien, where he talked to Page Six about his shot at a role in Game of Thrones:
“I think I auditioned for Jon Snow. I remember it because I was filming ‘Clash of the Titans’ at the time, so I had long hair extensions. They gave me a ponytail and also a very patchy fake tan. So I remember being like, ‘This is probably not what they’re hoping for,’ and it obviously wasn’t.”
Of, course, the role went to Kit Harington in the end, who has done a great job with it. Had Hoult bagged the role, Game of Thrones would have looked quite different. Then again, what would Jon Snow be without the ever brooding Kit Harington?

“People are very angry,” says Pilou Asbæk (Euron) about Game of Thrones Season 8
At the moment, Game of Thrones is having a bad run with the latest season becoming the lowest-rated season in the show. The show that has garnered love from fans and critics alike over the last decade, is now getting hate for rushing the final season. One of the latest deaths on the show was Euron Greyjoy. Actor Pilou Asbæk, who plays Euron, recently discussed the fans’ displeasure with the final season and more, in an interview with Insider. Read on!
Pilou was asked whom he was rooting for, now that Euron and Cersei were gone. He said:
“Who am I rooting for? I’m rooting for Dan and David. For them to be happy with what they have created.”
He was then asked if he thinks the showrunners will be happy with their creation:
“Yes, I think they will be, because right now, people are very angry. Some people are very angry and some people are very happy. I think, guys, just … please. Everyone has done the best work they could, under the circumstances they could, and I think it will stand the test of time. Honestly, I swear to God I think that. So I hope Dan and David are going to end up on the throne.”
Pilou also discussed how his character was different from the book Euron:
“100%. It’s two very different characters. I think Dan and David wanted a not-so-mysterious villain, the way he is in the books. They wanted to do something else. But you never, never know where a character is going. So you have to go with what you get. And I was just … you know … of course you always want more screen time. Because screen time often equals character development, and motivation. You can show different sides of a character.
But at the end of the day I’m a supporting cast member. I’m not one of the main cast members. So I’m here to support, that’s my job, that’s what I get paid for.”
All said and done, Pilou seemed satisfied with his run on the show:
“I’m feeling great. I feel very, very thankful to be part of it. As an actor you always want more scenes, you want more stuff to work with, you want to have as much screen time as possible. But, that said, you’re also extremely thankful that you got to be a part of one of the biggest shows in the world.”
What do you guys think? Could Euron have been better? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
