Bella Ramsey has shared her excitement over the lesbian relationship storyline which is expected to take place in The Last of Us’ second season.
The post-apocalyptic series has, so far, mostly stuck to the storyline from the video game it is based on. If this theme continues, the upcoming season could use the game’s sequel as source material and feature a storyline where Ramsey’s character, Ellie, is in a relationship with her companion, Dina.
In the game, the duo begin a quest for revenge across Seattle, Jackson and Santa Barbara, something Ramsey is keen to explore. “I’m really excited, to be honest, for the Ellie/ Dina story,” the actor explained on the Happy, Sad, Confused podcast. “I’ve watched a cut together, someone’s made a phenomenal – I don’t know how they do it – like an amazing edit of just the gameplay, like Ellie and Dina’s love story.
So I’m excited to play that out.” READ MORE: The Last of Us: How episode 3 is a triumph in beautiful queer storytelling The star also discussed the bond between Ellie and Joel (played by Pedro Pascal in the TV series), which has become strained after a five-year time jump between the events of the first and second game.
