Bella Ramsey has just landed their next leading role.
Following the enormous popularity of “The Last of Us”, Ramsey has just earned their next significant role in the upcoming period piece “Monstrous Beauty”.
According to Deadline, the drama is written and directed by Romola Garai, the mind behind “Atonement” and “The Hour”. Ramsey will play aspiring playwright Barbara Field, who suffers from hypertrichosis, which means she is entirely covered in hair.
The movie will be jam-packed with stars, including “The Crown” star Dominic West as King Charles II and “Killing Eve” actor Fiona Shaw as Aphra Behn, who shifted culture as the first published female playwright in history.
“Set in the 17th Century, ‘Monstrous Beauty‘ is the story of a unique young woman, Barbara Field (Ramsey), born into poverty with a rare condition that means she is entirely covered in hair,” states the movie’s official plotline.
“Fuelled by the desire to be defined for who she is rather than how she looks, Barbara aspires to become a playwright under the auspices of famous actress Nell Gwyn (Negga), powerful mistress to the King.”
Ramsey’s supporters took to Twitter to laud the actor for their latest lead.
“the bella ramsey takeover has officially begun,” wrote one fan.
“THE GAYS ARE WINNING BELLA IS BOOKED AND BUSY THIS SOUNDS SO FUN,” praised another netizen.
Check out the vast online applause Ramsey earned for their latest role.
