Game of Thrones alum Bella Ramsey dives into another period piece as the lead in Catherine Called Birdy.
The actress, known for her fan-favorite GOT role as Lady Lyanna Mormont, now transforms into the mischief-making Lady Catherine (aka Birdy). Check out the trailer for Ramsey’s feature below.
Catherine Called Birdy is based on the novel of the same name by Karen Cushman. In addition to Ramsey, the series also stars Fleabag’s Andrew Scott and Doctor Who’s Billie Piper, along with Joe Alwyn, Ralph Ineson, and Isis Hainsworth.
Here is the official synopsis for the story:
The year? 1290. In the Medieval English village of Stonebridge, Lady Catherine (known as Birdy) is the youngest child of Lord Rollo and the Lady Aislinn. Her playground is Stonebridge Manor, a house that, like the family, has seen better days. Financially destitute and utterly greedy, Rollo sees his daughter as his path out of financial ruin by marrying her off to a wealthy man for money and land. But Birdy, like all the great teen heroines, is spirited, clever, and adventurous and ready to put off any suitor that comes calling in increasingly ingenious ways. Her imagination, defiance, and deep belief in her own right to independence put her on a collision course with her parents. When the vilest suitor of all arrives, they are presented with the ultimate test of love for their daughter.

In addition to Game of Thrones, Ramsey’s credits include The Worst Witch and voicing the lead in the animated series Hilda. She recently appeared in HBO Max’s series adaptation of His Dark Materials. Ramsey will next appear in the adaptation of The Last of Us, opposite Pedro Pascal and Nick Offerman.
Catherine Called Birdy comes from writer-director Lena Dunham.
The feature will release in theaters September 23, before heading to Prime Video globally on October 7.
