After her first audition for the part of Ellie, The Last of Us actress Bella Ramsey was advised not to play the game. The Last of Us is the long-awaited adaptation of the 2013 action-adventure video game of the same name.

It is set in a post-apocalyptic future and follows the protagonists Joel and Ellie as they traverse the ruins of a nation in search of a cure for a horrible disease that wiped out the bulk of humanity. Late in September, a Last of Us teaser was published, offering spectators a taste of what to anticipate when the complete product premieres on HBO in 2023.

“After my first audition, they questioned me, ‘have you played it?'” Ramsey briefed USA Today. “And I said nope, and they said, keep it that way.” However, she adds that she ‘did watch some of the gameplay on YouTube just to get a sense of it.’

Pedro Pascal, her co-star, maintained a similar distance from the original material, just briefly seeing his nephew play the game. In an interview from earlier this year, he recounted, “I watched for as long as I was able to that day, and then I had to leave Florida.”

“I found Joel so impressive – I found the whole of it such a visually impressive experience. And then I got worried that I would want to imitate too much, which I think could be right in some circumstances, and then a mistake in others.”

Ramsey confessed that despite not having played video games, she is quite thrilled for The Last of Us to premiere on HBO in the United States and Sky in the United Kingdom. “It had a significant role in my life. “It was such a big part of my life. I shot for a whole year, which is quite a long time when you’ve only lived for 19 years,” exclaimed the actress.
