Spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6 below, of course.

HBO's official Game of Thrones blog wisely decided to interview everyone's favorite season six breakout star, the 12-year-old actress who plays Lady Lyanna Mormont.


She's known by her family, friends, and vassals as Bella Ramsey, and she apparently wasn't allowed to watch Game of Thrones before she got the part.

HBO: Had you seen the show before filming your scenes?

Bella Ramsey: When I knew I got the part, I was allowed to watch a few suitable snippets. I was interested to see the bit in Season 5 when Stannis [Baratheon] received Lyanna's letter.
