Barb from Stranger Things inspired a ridiculous, possibly unprecedented amount of chatter and internet #content considering her minimal screen time, but Game of Thrones also incited a similar situation this year. Lyanna Mormont, the pint-sized, all-business Lady of Bear Island and one true queen of scowls, will be back for Thrones Season 7. (Which won't start till next summer and will only run seven episodes.)

The fan site Watchers on the Wall highlighted the news on Monday, following pics of 12-year-old actress Bella Ramsey in costume on set in Northern Ireland:

Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) also hinted on Instagram a couple weeks ago that Ramsey, whom he's a big fan of, might be back:

Back in June, Ramsey spoke about her newfound popularity in a Making of Game of Thrones interview. "It's crazy really. I didn't expect anything like it," she said. "I am very, very happy that people like Lyanna Mormont."
