Bella Ramsey says in a recent interview that viewers can expect more stories with gay and transgender characters in the future of the show.
The adaptation of The last of us on the small screen was generally well received by both fans of the game and viewers experiencing Joel and Ellie’s story for the first time. However, the third episode was the victim of review bombing and caused controversy among some by dealing with a homosexual romance between the characters of Bill and Frank, which is why Bella Ramsey, the actress who plays Ellie, launched a powerful message addressed to those who make homophobic remarks on the TV series in an interview with QG.
“I’m not really worried about it,” Ramsey said after being asked if he had any concerns about the negative reception. “I know people will think what they want to think. But they’re going to have to get used to it. If they don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, it’s over for them, and they’re missing something.” , he said, noting that the second season focused on covering the plot of The Last of Us Part II will continue to treat these stories as the first season.
Don’t forget that episode 5 is already available with a preview of episode 6, which will air next Monday.
“The last of us It’s an excellent series that perfectly encompasses all the elements that made the video game of the same name so important in its time. It is a profound and existentialist drama, who cares like few others for the survival of human beings in difficult times, as well as the importance of love or decisions in dark times. The work of Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin has conveyed the story of Joel and Ellie with fidelity and skill, showing us how this unlikely couple, whose troubled reality forces them to confront who they are and how far they are capable of go to preserve what gives meaning to their lives,” we conclude in our review.
