The Last of Us: the HBO series would have cast a popular character


The least we can say is that The Last of Us series wants to devilishly respect video games or, at least, that’s what the wealth of information about it suggests. Today, a new clue testifies to HBO’s desire to stick as much as possible to the plot developed by Naughty Dog with the probable arrival of a new member to the cast.

The person in question is none other than Storm Reid, a young eighteen-year-old American actress known for her roles in Euphoria, Un Raccourci dans le Temps or Don’t Let Go: this one would obviously slip into the skin of Riley, one of the central characters of The Last of Us: Left Behind and one of the people close to Ellie, during her childhood.

At the very least, that’s what everyone agrees to say after her mother posts a message on Instagram, indicating its presence in Canada (the country in which the filming of the series is taking place) for “A popular video game adapted in series”. Very clearly, it appears to be for The Last of Us.

Storm Reid would therefore join an already well-rounded cast, comprising a long list of actors for as many characters: Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) will play Joel, Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) Ellie while Gabriel Luna (Terminator Dark Fate) will play Tommy, Anna Torve (Fringe) will be Tess or even Merle Dandridge (Greenleaf) slip into Marlene’s skin . Nick Offerman, known for his famous role of Ron Swanson in the Parks & Recreation series, will play Bill.

We are necessarily very curious to appreciate the result, especially since the set will be piloted by the people behind the Chernobyl series and the story will be co-written by Neil Druckmann, the director and co-writer of The Last of Us Part II himself. We do not yet have a precise release date but the shooting having started last summer already, the hopes of seeing the ten episodes land this year are real.
