You’d be kicking yourself right about now if you were those casting directors.
Many fans have been left speechless by the bold look, as one fan marvelled: “Bringing a camera and taking pictures of the photographers god, I wish they were invited for the camp theme.”
Another said: “Lady Mormont meets [the] Met Gala.”
While a third commented: “I love them I want more Bellas at the Met Gala [and] other crazy high-profile events.”
However, one particular fan noted while Ramsey dazzled in their slick black suit, the industry didn’t always embrace them.
“To know that they were once told they didn't have the face for Hollywood, and now they're at the Met Gala,” they wrote.
The 19-year-old recently confessed they were denied roles because of their unconventional look before landing The Last of Us.
In a resurfaced clip on Twitter, the actor said: “I was told [in] one of my first auditions ever... The director really liked me but I didn’t get the part because I didn’t have the ‘Hollywood look’.
“That’s something that I’ve always found very interesting.”
The young actor, who is non-binary, also opened up to GQ this year about being misgendered by the media.
As they’ve found empowerment in playing traditionally more feminine roles, Ramsey’s pronouns are often skewed.
“This is what bothers me more than pronouns: being called a ‘young woman’ or a ‘powerful young woman’, ‘young lady,’ but I'm just not [that],” they told the outlet.
“Catherine Called Birdy, I was in dresses. Young Elizabeth, I was in a corset. And I felt super powerful in that. Playing these more feminine characters is a chance to be something so opposite to myself, and it’s really fun.”
However, in the post-apocalyptic series, their character Ellie’s queer identity is a big part of who she is as she embarks on a relationship with a young woman named Dina.
And Ramsey loves that the show is a vehicle to explore uncharted queer storylines.
In particular, episode three, which follows lovers Bill (Nick Offerman) and Frank (Murray Bartlett), struck a chord with them.
“I was on the verge of tears throughout it, and cried at the bit in the montage when they got married,” Ramsey said.Featured Image Credit: HBO. Associated Press / Alamy Stock Photo
