Young GoT star banned from watching show

Game Of Thrones' Bella Ramsey has revealed her parents have banned her from watching the hit series because it's "too gruesome".

The actress, 15, who plays Lyanna Mormont, one of the North's staunchest defenders, suffered a brutal death at the hands of an ogre in last week's epic Battle Of Winterfell, The Sun reports.

While Bella's family sheltered her from the violence of previous episodes, they did let her watch the gory death that marked her exit from the show.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she 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."

Lyanna went out on her shield, plunging a dragon glass blade into the monster's eye having already been crushed in its vice-like grip.

She called the moment "heroic" and a "great death", as she saved countless lives by sacrificing her own.

The youngster wasn't the only popular character to die in the epic battle.

Jorah Mormons passed away in his beloved Daenerys Targaryen's arms while protecting her from the dead army.

Theon Greyjoy showed little sign he was afraid to take on the most fearful villain - the Night King.

While he stuck to his word by taking on the leader of the White Walkers, it seemed evidently clear Theon didn't stand a chance as he charged at him with a spear.

 

Fans went into meltdown over the Game of Thrones Battle of Winterfell.

His weapon was easily handled by the King who plunged a fatal blade through Theon's torso.

Melisandre, the Red Woman, was one of the most important characters in the episode.

She arrived at Winterfell before the battle began, giving her enough time to arm everyone with fire while seemingly helping Arya kill the Night King.

She also predicted her own death.

After it was all over, Melisandre took off her necklace - reverting to an old woman - and returned to dust, leaving just her clothes behind.
