Bella Ramsey explains why they eat cereal with orange juice

Bella Ramsey explains why they eat cereal with orange juice

In a recent interview with LADbible, Ramsey details trying it for the first time while shooting Game of Thrones

Bella Ramsey has shed some light on why they enjoy their cereal with orange juice instead of milk.

The BAFTA-winning actor, who burst onto the scene at the tender age of 13 in Game of Thrones, has quickly earned the reputation of being one of Britain's most exciting talents.

From the lead role in the post-apocalyptic drama The Last of Us, alongside Pedro Pascal, to their eerie portrayal as a drug addict in BBC's Time - it seems that Ramsey has the skillset to take on anything.

That's probably why the 20-year-old has been named as one of the 42 people on this year's BAFTA Breakthrough list, which is BAFTA’s new talent initiative to accelerate extraordinary people working in the industry.

"It's a big honour. I think the word like BAFTA comes with so much prestige.

"Which is quite weird that I'm now associated with that. But really lovely. And yeah, an honour, I'm excited," they told LADbible.

However, those who are extremely talented occasionally operate in eccentric ways.

Ramsey quite possibly falls into that category with this one, after admitting that they enjoy eating cereal with orange juice.

Alongside their The Last of Us co-star Pascal, Ramsey said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this year that they love eating cornflakes with orange juice.


The duo were quizzed over the last thing they ate and the British actor said: "Mine was cornflakes and bran with dried strawberries in...with orange juice on top instead of milk."

Bella Ramsey admitted they eat cereal with orange juice.

A shocked Pascal then questioned his co-star: "Orange juice?"

Ramsey replied: "So good. There once wasn't milk I could drink, there wasn't oat milk or almond milk, so I just tried orange juice on it. Years ago! And I loved it. And it's been a thing ever since."

Pedro responded: "How's it on your tummy?"

Ramsey answered: "Actually fine!"

And in a recent interview with LADbible, Ramsey revealed the way it all came about.

"I actually discovered it filming Game of Thrones in the hotel in Belfast," they said.

"I think there wasn't any soy milk or oat milk?

"So I was like, we'll just do orange juice.

"And then it's just been a thing since then."

The Nottingham-born actor clarified that they still enjoy the unique dish, adding: "Absolutely. It's a combination."

Elsewhere, Ramsey opened up on their next role, explaining how they would love to play a 'complex baddy'.

"I've not really played a villain yet. So I want to play a baddy. But like a really interesting, intricate, complex baddy," they said.

When asked about playing the Joker - without hesitation - Ramsey replied: "Yeah. I was actually thinking that as well. The Joker, someone really interesting like that."

Joaquin Phoenix and Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker has set the bar pretty high, but Ramsey is more than ready to tackle the role.

Ramsey noted they would also be open to playing a Hannibal Lecter-type character.

I think we would all love to see that.
