This Young Girl from Game of Thrones Totally Slays

When we grow up, we want to be just like Lyanna Mormont.

If you don't watch Game of Thrones, you might be wondering about all those memes on your feed this week, starring this young girl and her priceless face.

It is a face made for Mondays, for the ever-present traffic, and for all the times you're just like, UM HOW 'BOUT NO? It is the face of Lyanna Mormont, the 10-year-old ruler of Bear Island, who has more backbone than most of the so-called leaders in the Seven Kingdoms. In the grand scheme of Game of Thrones, she's only a minor character (so far), but she has already become a fan favorite. She first appeared a couple of weeks ago, absolutely killing it in the few minutes she was onscreen. As three well-loved characters tried to recruit her soldiers for an epic battle, she held her own and out-sassed them with her steely gaze, no-nonsense approach, and casual shade-throwing. Two of those full-grown adults, badasses in their own right, were rendered speechless, and it was the third one, the only one who treated her like an equal, who was able to get through to her.

On this week's cinematic, 100% superb episode, Lyanna managed to steal the scene yet again during the split second she appeared, as she was giving their despicable enemy the death glare to end all death glares.

But even before she graced us with her badass presence, she already had our love with her letter (check out that kiddie handwriting!) reiterating her family's loyalty to the house they have served for a thousand years (and not, you know, breaking their vows like other houses might be tempted or forced to).

Naturally, we wanted to know more about the actress who brought to life an instant favorite. A quick IMDb search shows that Lyanna Mormont is the first role played by 10-year-old actress Bella Ramsey. Not much is known about her, except that she's a total boss. As showrunner D.B. Weiss says, "She does such a great job of just talking smack to the guys who are used to being the heroes who make proclamations." The fact that this is her first role is amazing but not that surprising as Game of Thrones has a knack for discovering the best child actors (see: the Stark kids, etc.).

Here's hoping for more of Lyanna in the finale next week and the season after that!
