Bella Ramsey, who played Ellie in the HBO series The Last of Us, is among a group of actors who have pledged to cut down on their plane trips in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint.
The group, which also includes Emma Watson, Idris Elba, and Robert Pattinson, has signed a letter calling on the entertainment industry to take action on climate change. The letter states that the industry is “one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world” and that “we have a responsibility to act.”
The actors have pledged to reduce their travel by taking fewer long-haul flights, using video conferencing instead of in-person meetings, and supporting sustainable production practices.
Ramsey said that she is “committed to doing my part to fight climate change” and that she hopes that other actors will follow her lead.
“We all have a responsibility to make changes in our lives,” she said. “And I believe that the entertainment industry can play a leading role in this.”
The letter from the actors is part of a growing movement in the entertainment industry to address climate change. In recent years, many studios have committed to reducing their carbon emissions. And some actors, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, have become vocal advocates for climate action.
The actors’ pledge is a significant step, but it is just one of many that need to be taken to address climate change. The entertainment industry is a major emitter of greenhouse gases, and it has a responsibility to do more to reduce its impact.
