Game Of Thrones Star Bella Ramsey Banned From Watching Show

Game Of Thrones Star Bella Ramsey Banned From Watching Show

Game of Thrones star Bella Ramsey has been banned from watching the show that made her famous.

The actor plays the diminutive Lyanna Mormont, Lady of House Mormont, in the hit fantasy series, however, she revealed that her parents have said she's not allowed to watch it, despite being one of the most important characters.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the 15-year-old said: "I'll probably watch it all when I'm 18.

"Even the episodes I have seen, there have been some parts where Mum and Dad just stand in front of me to block me seeing anything too gruesome on screen.

"I was allowed to see myself being killed last Sunday and I've watched a bit of season seven."

Three years is a long time to wait, but at least she got to see her character's final bow, because she was bloody brilliant - arguably the biggest badass int the Battle of Winterfell.

Viewers were on the edge of their seats as they watched her charge straight at a zombie giant and with her last breath plunge a dragonglass dagger straight into its eye, killing him and saving - presumably - countless others.

What a way to go. A truly heroic death.

And fans thought so too, with many praising her performance.

One viewer wrote: "Unpopular opinion: Lyanna Mormont was more useful than Jon and Dany on dragons combined."

While another added: "What a brave character Lyanna Mormont. What a scene she definitely won our hearts. Bella Ramsey."

But things could have been so different.

In the 'Inside The Episode' video released by HBO after every instalment of Game of Thrones' last hurrah, showrunner D.B. Weiss said: "Lyanna Mormont was supposed to be a one-scene character. Then we met Bella Ramsey and we realised that we wouldn't be doing our jobs if we kept her as a one-scene character.

"We knew that you can't give a big death to everybody who dies in this battle because it would have been too much, but also if she were to die there was no way to not make a moment of it.

"That's where the zombie giant comes in.

"It just did add a whole level of complexity to that moment, that I'm sure a lot of people would have been OK with not having there if we'd demanded to cut it.

"But I think they also understood why we needed to give one of the strongest smaller people in the show a chance to go out taking down one of the strongest larger things we've ever seen on the show."
