When HBO said Bella Ramsey Ethnicity would play Ellie in The Last of Us, she got a lot of hate because most reviewers thought she didn’t look like Ellie from the video game. Ramsey put the doubters to rest by playing the part perfectly.
Ramsey didn’t respond to the people on the internet who said bad things about her looks, but she isn’t afraid to speak out against people who don’t like how LGBTQ+ people are portrayed on the show.
“The climate emergency and other things, there are a lot more important things to worry about than two people in love kissing on TV,” Ramsey told Sky News.
Bella was born in England and grew up in Nottingham.
Bella Ramsey was born in England, in Nottingham. Her parents are white. So far, Ramsey’s parents have stayed out of the public eye and don’t show up on his social media pages very often.
In fact, the only picture of Ramsey’s mom that can be found online is a selfie of her thumb that Ramsey shared on August 21, 2020. Ramsey’s dad, Alex Ramsey, runs a business and plays the trumpet.
Ramsey’s parents have been there for her throughout her work. When Ramsey got the part of Mildred Hubble in The Worst Witch, they were overjoyed. Ramsey told the BBC about how the news affected her family:
“They are all very proud and happy for you.” When we got the call, I was with my mom, sister, cousin, and aunt. There was so much screaming and jumping that you could have filled a bucket with happy tears!”
There is a lot of talk about race and ethnicity in The Last of Us online. Some watchers say that the actors’ races don’t match up with the characters’ races in the game.
No matter what, every character in The Last of Us has done something great. The mostly positive reviews of the show have mostly drowned out the negative reviews, and Ramsey’s appearance has further silenced the critics.
