Game of Thrones

has never been short of characters that fans love to champion, but no other character made quite the impression Lyanna Mormont did.

Lyanna (played by Bella Ramsey) is the leader of Bear Island despite being only 10 years old, and swiftly became known for her no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners vibe.

Toward the end of the last season, she joined forces with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to help retake Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton, and proceeded to steal every scene she was in after that.

Now, new photos from the set of the seventh season's production have confirmed Ramsey is returning to play the fiery young leader when the show returns next year.

The photos, taken and shared to Twitter by PAP4U, show Ramsey exiting her trailer on set in Northern Ireland, in full Game of Thrones attire.

The images were supposedly taken around the same time the show's other stars - including Kit Harington, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, and more - had been confirmed to be in the area.

Of course, this is really no surprise.

Mormont was seen at the end of season six giving a rousing speech to the leaders of the North, rallying them together to support Jon Snow as the King in the North suggesting she'll play a major part in the northern storyline to come.

She also became a fan favourite in record time, prompting many memes and reaction gifs in her honour.

Game of Thrones

is expected to return with season 7 around June, 2017.
