Bella Ramsey, the star of “The Last of Us,” recently opened up about the harsh reality of online bullying and the impact it has had on their life. In a candid interview with GQ, Ramsey discussed the hurtful comments they’ve received on social media over the years.

Many online users seemed obsessed with Ramsey’s “square head,” causing them to find themselves doomscrolling through social media in search of increasingly painful comments. Despite the negative impact these comments have had, Ramsey has chosen to focus on the positive reception from fans of the original video games regarding their performance as Ellie in “The Last of Us”.

During the interview, Ramsey expressed their gratitude, saying, “I’m just glad I could do that for them. And for the show. And for Ellie. I want to do her justice.”

Ramsey also spoke about identifying as non-binary and preferring both she/her and they/them pronouns. They shared their discomfort with being referred to as a “young woman” or a “powerful young woman” or a “young lady.” They emphasized their enjoyment of exploring various aspects of their identity through acting, including playing more feminine characters in projects like “Catherine Called Birdy.”

Discussing these roles, Ramsey said, “‘Catherine Called Birdy’, I was in dresses. ‘Young Elizabeth’, I was in a corset. And I felt super powerful in that. Playing these more feminine characters is a chance to be something so opposite to myself, and it’s really fun.”
