In a recent interview with W magazine, Bella Ramsey, the non-binary star of The Last of Us, opened up about their passion for creating positive change. Ramsey shared that they wrote a screenplay about mental health during night shoots on the set of The Last of Us, drawing from their own experiences with an eating disorder. They are currently shopping the script around to producers, with the intention of directing it themselves.
Ramsey’s dedication to creating a better world extends beyond their work in film. They are pursuing an Open University degree in environmental science, inspired by co-star Storm Reid’s ability to balance school and show business. Ramsey feels that pursuing their academic interests in environmental science is essential to making a positive impact on the world.
Ramsey’s determination to make a difference is also reflected in their openness about their non-binary identity. In the interview, Ramsey shared that they use “she” or “they” pronouns and expressed a desire to be their “truest self in the world.” They hope that their visibility as a non-binary person in the entertainment industry will help others feel comfortable in their own identities.
Despite the challenges of being in the public eye, Ramsey remains committed to being authentic and true to themselves. Whether it’s through their on-screen performances or their personal pursuits, Ramsey continues to inspire others with their passion and dedication to creating a better world.
