Bella Ramsey: ‘I’m Disgusted To Be In My 20s!’

Bella Ramsey: 'I'm Disgusted To Be In My 20s

Bella Ramsey “never wanted” to grow up. The 20-year-old star rose to fame as a child with roles in programs like ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Worst Witch’ but now feels “disgusted” that her teenage years are in the past.

Bella told The Guardian, “My whole family is very musical and creative – my parents met through music… But we were so far removed from the film and TV industry. We didn’t know anyone in it.

“I never wanted to grow up because I thought you lose privileges when you do. But now I realize you gain them – you can vote, drive, and be independent. I’m excited about the future, actually. ‘Time’ was the first show I’ve done on my own. My mom didn’t come on set with me. It was a significant experience in many ways. I was ready to move on my own.

“But I read an article about how neuroscientists say you don’t become an adult before 30 – we’re just kids always, I think. It’s just our bodies that age.” However, the ‘Catherine Called Birdy’ star has enjoyed a “cushioned journey” into the spotlight and is surrounded by a “protective” group of people.

Bella added, “My journey has been very cushioned. I have been fortunate to work with people who are fiercely protective of me. I hear horror stories from people in the industry. I’ve had some significant challenges and traumas, as everyone has, but for the most part, I’ve felt very safe. There’s a certain power that comes with being number one or two on the call sheet. Now that I’m getting older, I’m looking forward to being able to help other people I work with – be the adult who can advocate for the younger person.”
