Bella Ramsey has made a name for themselves as a talented actor, and their lead role in HBO’s “The Last of Us” has solidified their place as one of the best in the industry. Despite initial backlash from fans, Bella’s performance has received widespread acclaim and has made them one of the most sought-after actors in the industry.
In an exclusive feature for GQ UK, writer Jack King takes a closer look at Bella’s journey to the top. From their past roles in “Game of Thrones” and “Catherine Called Birdy” to their lead role in “The Last of Us,” Bella has proven time and time again that they are a force to be reckoned with.
Identity is a central theme in “The Last of Us,” and in the upcoming second season, Ellie’s relationship with a woman named Dina will be explored. Despite the inevitable backlash from some quarters, Bella is not afraid and is excited to continue playing Ellie. They have described the cast and crew as a “safety blanket” and have said they would happily continue working on the show for years to come.
Bella identifies as non-binary and has been open about their experiences in the industry. They wore a chest binder for most of the filming of “The Last of Us” to help them focus on set, and their co-star, Pedro Pascal, was incredibly supportive. Despite the hate they have faced, Bella is not intimidated and is determined to keep pushing forward.
