Stannis Baratheon: “Do you know this wretched girl? Lyanna Mormont.”
Jon Snow: “The Lord Commander’s niece.”
Stannis Baratheon: “The Lady of Bear Island and a child of ten. I asked her to commit her House to my cause. That’s her response.”
Jon Snow: “[reading aloud] ‘Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark’.”

In the Game of Thrones season 6 trailer, we hear Davos Seaworth saying, ‘The real war is between the living and make no mistake — the dead are coming.’ In an interview with IGN, Liam Cunningham has revealed that he’s talking to the 10-year old Lyanna Mormont, the Lady of Bear Island:

“Who I’m saying that to is a fabulous young actress who you haven’t met yet, who’s about to come in, who’s Lyanna Mormont. He’s explaining the situation to her because certain other individuals are making a mess of their parlay. He’s very good at lateral thinking and explaining the situation, as we know.”

Lyanna Mormont is the daughter of Maege Mormont (Jeor Mormont’ sister) and that makes her cousin of Ser Jorah. Her name was mentioned in season 5 when Stannis received a note from Lyanna, refusing to ally with his cause and claiming loyalty to only House Stark. Cunningham also revealed that Davos will try to convince the other Northern Houses to come together and fight the undead:

“The Night’s King is coming. You ain’t gonna kill him with a bow and arrow. We need to do something, rapidly, but they’ve all got their heads up their asses with their own little squabbles. Don’t forget Melisandre’s seen it in the flames. She’s talking about all these petty squabbles that are going on with the Lannisters and the Boltons, all getting their little piece of turf in the Seven Kingdoms. They refuse to recognize that there’s 100,000 of the undead about to come. She’s seen it. [Davos] believes the things that she’s seen, even though he doesn’t like her, but she has her powers.”
