Cordelia Hill has taken all the show’s fans (including eminent personalities like Barack Obama and David Cameron) by surprise and has mesmerized them with her portrayal of Lyanna Stark. Cordelia Hill was transformed from a girl-next-door into an international celebrity overnight when she was cast as Lyanna Stark in the show. The teenager had been guided to participate in the audition by Lucia Victoria, her agent, and as luck would have it, she enthralled the panel of judges with her natural acting skills and effortless confidence. Nina Gold, the BAFTA-winning casting director, was impressed by her first audition and selected her without any further ado, even though Cordelia had missed the follow-up screen test as she was holidaying with her family then.
  • Since her childhood, Cordelia Hill had harbored hopes of becoming a famous actress where she would be entitled to ride a horse, and fortunately for her, it did come true! She debuted on the television screen by riding into the ancestral castle of Winterfell, on a white stallion. The young celebrity is very down-to-earth by nature and tries to keep her life as normal as possible in spite of the inevitable superstar treatment she receives—and that includes chauffeured limousines and being chased by the paparazzi!
