One of Nottingham’s most famous faces in contemporary entertainment will be returning to the screen once again in the adaptation of hit video game The Last of Us.
Bella Ramsey, whose full name is actually Isabella May, rose to fame most notably from her role in the television series of Game of Thrones, also by HBO.
Now 17, the teenager has been cast in yet another leading role in the TV-adaptation of the PlayStation 3 game, The Last of Us, which released in 2013 and won numerous awards as well as the hearts of the gaming community.
The story follows smuggler Joel and a teenager called Ellie in a post-apocalyptic world devastated by a fungus which takes over the human brain.
It is soon revealed however that Joel must smuggle Ellie, who turns out to be immune, out of a quarantine zone and across the USA to a group called the Fireflies.
It is believed this group could develop a cure with Ellie’s help, and the tale follows the relationship between the pair as they battle for survival to reach their ultimately devastating goal.
Bella soon captured the nation’s attention in Game of Thrones with her no-nonsense performance as Lady Lyanna Mormont.
She grew up in Nottingham, starting to act as early as age four, and has visited schools in areas such as St Ann’s to inspire confidence in young people ever since.
The teen, who attends the city’s Television Workshop, attended Stagecoach Theatre Arts in Loughborough for around seven years before landing lead roles.
