Speaking to British Vogue, Ramsey has revealed that they are ‘not 100 per cent straight’ and feel they are a ‘little bit wavy’ as they are ‘ever evolving’.

The His Dark Materials says in the interview: “You never fully know who you are, it’s ever-evolving. But I certainly think that people have gathered that I’m not 100 per cent straight.

“I’m a little bit wavy, you know? That’s what I like to say.”

Ramsey also opened up about their dating life, claiming that they are still ‘figuring’ that part out.

They continue: “I’m 19, so figuring that out’s gonna be a part of my life. Relationships are so complex anyway, and if you’re in the public eye, everyone having an opinion about them adds an extra layer of difficulty.”

The Last of Us star came out as gender fluid last year and admitted that coming out helped prep them for playing Ellie.

They also confessed to wearing a chest binder for about ’90 per cent’ while shooting the HBO show.

Speaking to GQ, they acknowledged that it wasn’t safe to do so but it helped them focus better on set.

However, in their interview with British Vogue, Ramsey said that those working on set were very supportive of their decision and allowed them to work in whatever they felt comfortable in.

“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.

“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.”
