In a recent interview with The New York Times, the 19-year-old star revealed how excited she always got when someone called the actor "he" and checked the column of 'non-binary' while filling up any form, if there's an option. She also says she doesn't put a lot of weight into pronouns, but doesn't like "being gendered."

"I guess my gender has always been very fluid. Someone would call me ‘she’ or ‘her’ and I wouldn’t think about it, but I knew that if someone called me ‘he’ it was a bit exciting. I’m very much just a person. Being gendered isn’t something that I particularly like, but in terms of pronouns, I really couldn’t care less," Ramsey said during the interview.
