Trivia (7)

Graduated from the UK's National Film and Television School in 1995.

Trained as a camera operator.

Ramsay quit the indie drama Jane Got a Gun (2015) prior to the first day of shooting following a 3-day standoff with producer-financier Scott Steindorff in March 2013. Ramsey complained about alleged fraudulent behavior of the producer during pre-production, mainly trying to force upon her an impossible schedule at the last minute. She felt tricked with false promises and left the production therefore. Ramsay was supposed to receive $750,000 for directing the film plus bonuses, her best salary ever, but she said, that the producers made it impossible to direct the movie the way she had planned. Ramsey was sued for breach of contract, but the resulting lawsuit was settled privately in March 2014. The producers announced that they would no longer pursue her for any damages.
