Be it the headstrong and brave Lyanna Mormont or the lovable Ellie, the former Game of Thrones star Bella Ramsey (who uses they/them/their pronouns) has nailed every role and is recognized as one of the most talented young actors today. Their breakthrough role is in The Last of Us, where they play Ellie, a 14-year-old Cordyceps-immune orphan, which earned them enormous recognition and fame.
They appear alongside their Game of Thrones co-star Pedro Pascal, who plays the resilient Joe Miller. Thanks to their brilliant performances, Ramsey has acquired widespread popularity and a huge fan following.
As Ramsey’s fame continues to rise, fans want to know more and everything about them. In January 2023, the 19-year-old actor came out as nonbinary. Speaking on the subject, they confessed the challenges and struggles they had to undergo as a result of their gender identity.
In an interview with The New York Times, they said, “I’m very much just a person. Being gendered isn’t something that I particularly like. But in terms of pronouns, I really couldn’t care less.”
Bella Ramsay’s health history explained
So…it’s world mental health day. I’ve been wondering when a good time would be to share my story. And today is the day. Just over a year ago I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, although this illness had a hold of me for a year or so before that.
