The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey has revealed that they want to be recognised as gender fluid in a brand new interview.

The British actor stars in the upcoming video game adaptation HBO series as main protagonist and teenager girl Ellie, who is immune to the disease that has wiped out much of Earth's population.

Ramsey is arguably best known for her role playing Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones between seasons six and eight.

The video game took the world by storm in 2013, selling 1.3 million units in its first week and over 17 million by 2018.

A sequel followed in 2020, with a remake of the first game for PlayStation 5 released late last year.

Ahead of the release of The Last of Us on HBO on Sunday, Ramsey has been speaking to The New York Times.

The 19-year-old spoke very honestly about how she identifies, saying: "I guess my gender has always been very fluid.

"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.

Ramsay said that she would tick the 'nonbinary' option if it was one on a form when it comes to pronouns.

She added: "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."

Ramsey adds to the list of actors that have come out as non-binary in recent years, alongside the likes of House of the Dragon actor Emma D’Arcy, The Crown’s Emma Corrin and Glass Onion's Janelle Monáe.

Many people have flocked to social media to praise Ramsey for being so honest in her round of interviews ahead of the release of The Last of Us.

And a third said: "bella ramsey member of the nonbinary community oh this is huge for us."

Ramsey's interview comes after their nomination for Sunday's Critics Choice Awards, with Ramsey nominated for best young actor/actress for the film Catherine Called Birdy.

In a separate interview with The Times, Ramsey spoke on how pleased she was to be nominated in the non-gender-specific category.
