Bella Ramsey, actor behind the fearless Lyanna Mormont, Lady of Bear Island, says her parents won’t let her watch Game of Thrones because it has just a little too much of everything in it.
(Death, sex, slaughter, incest, etc.)
“I’ll probably watch it all when I’m 18,” the 15-year-old told Daily Star. But despite the understandable ban, Ramsey said she has seen bits and pieces from across the seasons… albeit joined by her parents.
“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,” she said.
Speaking of gruesome, Lyanna went out in the most badass way possible during the Battle of Winterfell. Crushed and with her final breath, she stabbed an undead giant in the bloody eye. Thankfully, Ramsey’s parents let her watch her own death scene.
“I was allowed to see myself being killed last Sunday,” she said, adding that she’s also watched a bit of season seven.

I had a song in my head during the filming of episode three… Every Giant Will Fall by @rendcollective ???????? it basically sums it all up. I’m overwhelmed by the response, thank you so so much ???????? “I will not hide underground. I pledged to fight for the North, and I will fight” RIP Lyanna ???????? #gameofthrones #everygiantwillfall #lyannamormont
In HBO‘s Game Revealed, Ramsey said she was hoping for a legendary death.
“When I found out I was dying, it was the best thing really,” she said. “It sounds strange but I either decided I’d be happy if I ended up on the Throne, which I thought was very, very unlikely, or I had a great death so I’m very happy.”
And what will she miss most from playing such a fierce character?
“The opportunity to stand up in front of a load of grown men and shame them,” she told The Cut.
Ramsey’s section in Game Revealed, appropriately titled Go Big or Go Home, kicks off around the 15 minute and 30 second mark.
Game of Thrones airs Mondays on Foxtel.
