Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie in the TV adaptation of a post-apocalyptic survival series The last of usShe has signaled her appreciation for the “gay army” that supports her.
fans and critics of The last of us have unanimously praised the 2013 adaptation of the video game of the same name, particularly praising the adherence to source material and the expansion of certain plot points, such as: B. Bill and Frank’s tragic love story in episode three and Ellie and Riley’s kiss in episode seven.
While Ramsey has previously lashed out at fanatics who have criticized the episodes — despite the fact that the events in the video game are perfectly clear — she’s aware that she’s not fighting alone.
When appearing on The last pod Podcast, Ramsey revealed that although series creator Craig Mazin warned her not to look at the comments, she “slightly, dramatically inflated that oath” and ran into a certain group supporting her character.
“I’m very aware there’s a gay army on Twitter supporting me and Ellie and it’s like they’re so much louder than all the people who still hate it or hate the show, the homophobic trolls.
“[It] feels good to have this army behind me. That was a reaction I really enjoyed.”
episode three, “Long, Long Time” followed the bittersweet romance between Bill (Nick Offerman) and Frank (Murray Bartlett) that successfully challenged the ubiquitous “bury your gay” tradition and has been heralded as one of the best television episodes of all time.
“left behind“, the seventh episode, reunites Ellie with her best friend and crush Riley (Storm Reid) and makes the two develop feelings for each other after spending the day in an abandoned mall. The adventure culminates in a kiss – before everything goes wrong and both are bitten by an infected person.
Both stars of the seventh episode have spoken out against fanatics and criticized the homophobic backlash the episode faced. Reid called it “nonsense,” while Ramsey told the trolls to “get used to it.”
The Last of Us: Part Twothe sequel to the original game and assumed source material for the upcoming second season of the television adaptation, also features a storyline involving a young trans boy and focuses on Ellie’s relationship with her friend Dina.
The last of us continues on Sunday on HBO in the US and Monday on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK.
