Ellie actress Bella Ramsey got a black eye on the set of HBO’s The Last of Us, as part of a mishap during a pivotal sequence. This story contains spoilers for The Last of Us.
Speaking to IGN, Ramsey said she got hurt in the Episode 5 sequence where Ellie is fighting for her life trying to escape the hordes of Clickers. “It was incredibly stressful but in a way that felt amazing. I got so many bruises. I actually got a real black eye at one point,” Ramsey said.
Ramsey got smacked in the eye from a Clicker who was flailing around during a death sequence. “Accidentally, the poor guy whacks me in the eye. I was so proud of it [the black eye]. I had a great time,” Ramsey said.

New episodes of The Last of Us air Sunday nights on HBO (with the exception of Episode 5, which premiered a couple days early to avoid a clash with the Super Bowl). Episode 6 is coming up this Sunday, February 19, and it looks like Joel and Ellie will finally get to Wyoming where they’ll meet up with Tommy (Gabriel Luna).
In other news, it recently came to light that the word “zombie” was banned from the set of The Last of Us because the show is not a zombie show. For more on the newest episode of The Last of Us, check out GameSpot’s breakdown in the video above and interview with Henry actor Lamar Johnson.
