The actress Bella Ramsey is one of the most fashionable young interpreters thanks to the series The Last of Us, but she has revealed difficult moments in her career.
Bella Ramsey became known worldwide for her brutal portrayal of Lyanna Mormont in HBO’s Game of Thrones. After that, she has continued working on series like Hilda or Dark Matter, but with The Last of Us she has brought her popularity back, as she gives life to Ellie Williams, one of the most beloved characters in video games.
In an interview with Good Day DC’s Kevin McCarthy, Bella Ramsey revealed something that happened to her early in her career:
“I was told at one of my first auditions, they told me the director really liked me, but I didn’t get the part because I didn’t have the Hollywood look. That’s something that I’ve always found very interesting.”
Her choice as Ellie in The Last of Us also caused controversy with some fans. Something that surprised the actress a lot. Since she revealed:
“This is the first time I had a negative reaction to anything.”
Luckily, The Last of Us creator Craig Mazin knew what they were looking for for this character.
“We are looking for a girl or someone who can convincingly portray a girl, who has this otherworldly wisdom with this impossible combination of youth and experience. Also, she needs to be funny, tough, violent, and protective of herself.”

While Bella Ramsey also had her doubts when it came to joining the series:
“Signing on a show is a big risk, because if I hate this, then I’m potentially tied to it for years, and I didn’t want to be tied to something I didn’t enjoy. But honestly I would do this for years.”
He will return for the second season.
Despite the fact that about 5 years pass from the story of the first video game to the events of the second, but they have already confirmed that they will not change the actress and Bella Ramsey will repeat.
This was stated by Craig Mazin.
“When he joined us, he was 17 years old. She is only 19 years old now. Which, by the way, is Ellie’s age in The Last of Us Part II. People said: She doesn’t look like Ellie. I’m like: It doesn’t matter. She just watches what happens. And now they know.”
In fact, the actress who lent her voice to video game Ellie appears in the series, as Ashley Johnson plays the mother of Bella Ramsey’s character.
