The Last of Us 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2020, and game developers Naughty Dog have been steadily releasing updates and teasers about the game for months. One recent update that has caught the attention of fans is an appearance by Bella Ramsey, the actress who plays the character of Ellie in the game, on the Jonathan Ross Show. During the interview, Ramsey shared some insights into the development process of the game, as well as some of the challenges that she faced while working on it.

The Last of Us 2 is a post-apocalyptic action-adventure game that takes place in a world devastated by a fungal outbreak that has turned most of the population into “infected” monsters. Players take on the role of Ellie, a young girl who is immune to the infection, as she travels through the ruins of civilization in an effort to find a cure for the disease. Along the way, she encounters a wide variety of survivors, both friendly and hostile, and must fight her way through numerous intense and challenging situations.

Ramsey, who is best known for her role as the fierce and determined Lyanna Mormont in HBO’s Game of Thrones, was cast as Ellie in The Last of Us 2 after an extensive audition process. She revealed that her audition for the role was initially done via Skype, and that she had to perform a number of complex and emotionally challenging scenes in order to land the part. Once she was offered the role, she had to undergo an extensive training process in order to prepare for the physical demands of the role.

One of the main challenges that Ramsey faced while working on the game was the intensity of the scenes that she had to perform. The Last of Us 2 is known for its dark and brutal storyline, and many of the scenes that Ramsey had to act in were emotionally draining and physically demanding. She explained that the team at Naughty Dog were extremely supportive, however, and that they helped her through the more difficult moments by providing her with extensive guidance and support.

Ramsey also discussed the elements of her character that she found most appealing. She explained that Ellie is a strong and determined character who is willing to do whatever it takes to survive, and that she was drawn to the complexity of the character. She also praised the writing and character development in the game, saying that the story is one of the most compelling that she has ever worked on.

The Last of Us 2 has been the subject of a great deal of controversy in recent months, however. Some fans have objected to the inclusion of LGBTQ characters and themes in the game, while others have criticized the game’s violence and brutality. Ramsey addressed these issues during her appearance on Jonathan Ross, saying that she believes that the story told in the game is an important one that needs to be heard.

She also defended the game’s use of violence, saying that it is an integral part of the experience. “The gameplay is so immersive and you really feel like you’re experiencing what the characters are experiencing,” she said. “The violence is a part of that, and I think it’s necessary to create the kind of tense and intense moments that the game is known for.”

Even with all the controversy, however, The Last of Us 2 remains one of the most highly anticipated games of 2020. Fans are eagerly awaiting the chance to step into Ellie’s shoes and experience the game’s challenging and emotional storyline for themselves. With Bella Ramsey on board as the voice of Ellie, there’s no doubt that the game will be an intense and unforgettable experience for all who play it.
