After Twitter removed blue checkmarks from legacy verified users, The Last of Us actress Bella Ramsey announced an unsurprising decision. 

Ramsey had a memorable stint as Ellie in The Last of Us Season 1 on HBO, with the actress using Twitter as a means of promoting the show every week. From sharing behind-the-scenes images to hyping up the weekly episodes, Ramsey was clearly having fun on the app. 

However, all good things must come to an end.

Bella Ramsey Issues Special Twitter Announcement

Bella Ramsey as Ellie

In a tweet, Game of Thrones and The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey announced that she is leaving Twitter while expressing her love for fans: 

"Twitter it’s been fun. My account will still be active for now but I will not be on here! Thank you my gay army and all the rest. Love you."

Meanwhile, Ramsey hasn't shared anything similar on Instagram, indicating that she will continue to be active on that platform. 

It remains to be seen why Ramsey decided to leave Twitter, but it's possible that it has something to do with Elon Musk's takeover of the social media app and the recent removal of blue checkmarks from legacy verified users. 

Ramsey joins a long list of actors who already bid goodbye to Twitter, such as Elton John, Jim Carrey, Gigi Hadid, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jameela Jamil.

What Are Bella Ramsey’s Next Projects?

After portraying Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones and recently playing Ellie in The Last of Us, Bella Ramsey has a bright future. 

The young actress is set to star in Monstrous Beauty, a period drama in which she plays an aspiring playwright in the court of King Charles II who suffers from a rare condition where she is entirely covered in hair. Deadline shared that filming for Monstrous Beauty will start this September.

Moreover, Ramsey is also part of the voice cast of Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget as Molly. 

This is on top of the already-confirmed arrival of The Last of Us Season 2 where Ramsey is expected to have a much bigger role as Ellie after she teased Pedro Pascal's reduced presence in the sophomore run. 

The Last of Us Season 1 is streaming on HBO Max.
