Bella Ramsey explains the “burst of emotions” she felt while fighting David



Bella Ramsey as Ellie in The Last of Us

HBO’s The Last of Us interpreted scenes from the original video game quite faithfully on the TV screen, albeit with certain changes. Fans were awaiting Ellie’s fateful encounter with David, and her escape where she has to brutally stab David in her defense. Bella Ramsey’s performance in that scene was out of this world, and she recently talked about she felt while performing it.

How did Bella Ramsey feel while filming the scene where Ellie loses control?

In a recent interview with Fanfest, Ramsey opened up about the scene, “I think that Ellie’s response is such intense emotion that she doesn’t know what to do with. It becomes very outward and expressive and explosive. That was really cool. I was very much trusting Craig and Liza [Johnson], the director, to guide me in that way. I loved that scene. I love scenes where you get to feel things really intensely, because you don’t often get the chance to do that in a super safe space. To get that chance was awesome.”

Why does The Last of Us have less action when compared to the video game?

The game’s creator and showrunner Neil Druckmann recently talked about the criteria they used to remove a scene from the storyline in a press conference. He said, “We took a very high-level approach and looked at just the action across the board. Every piece of action, if you look at the show, has to move character in some way. If it doesn’t move character and it was only there for spectacle, then it was an easy cut for us.”

Showrunner Craig Mazin teased the reporters about what’s to come in Season 2, “Sometimes it will be different radically and sometimes it will be barely different at all, but it’s going to be different and it will be its own thing. It won’t be exactly like the game. It will be the show that Neil and I want to make. We are making it with Bella.”
