Who is Bella Ramsey’s girlfriend? Her love life and sexuality

Bella Ramsey

The long-awaited kiss between Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Riley (Storm Reid) happened in episode seven of The Last of Us. The showrunners have deviated from the game’s scripts several times but remained true to the source material when bringing out Ellie and Riley’s relationship, much to the delight of die-hard game fans. 

The episode has raised interest in Bella Ramsey’s love life. 

Bella Ramsey is not in a relationship and hasn’t been romantically involved with anyone during her career

Bella Ramsey doesn’t have a girlfriend. Since she started acting at 11, Ramsey hasn’t been in a public romantic relationship. It seems that her main priority is career advancement. 

Ramsey shares precious little about her private life; perhaps her most personal revelation being that she’s non-binary. 

“I guess my gender has always been very fluid,” she told The New York Times. “Someone would call me ‘she’ or ‘her’ and I wouldn’t think about it, but I knew that if someone called me ‘he’ it was a bit exciting.”

The actress said she doesn’t care much for pronouns: “Being gendered isn’t something that I particularly like, but in terms of pronouns, I really couldn’t care less.”

Meanwhile, Ramsey has defended The Last of Us’ portrayal of LGBTQ+ storylines. Some netizens have lamented the presence of LGBTQ+ relationships in the series, despite their existence in the game. Ramsey told Sky News:

“It’s in the game, like the Ellie and Riley stories in the game and Bill and Frank is hinted at in the game. I think it’s really cool. Just because of the apocalypse doesn’t mean that gay people don’t exist.”

In an interview with GQ UK magazine, Ramsey told off dissenting fans, inviting them not to watch the series if they had a problem with LGBTQ+ narratives. She said:

“They’re gonna have to get used to it. If you don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, that’s on you, and you’re missing out. It isn’t gonna make me afraid. I think that comes from a place of defiance.”
