The Last Of Us: Cast

Reports hint that Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie will be cast. Druckman excitedly expressed that “I fair saw the primary prosthetic test for the Clicker and it’s great. It’s so cool to see this thing come to reality in the physical life.”

Other cast members have not been out in the open or it might be they have not been cast yet. Nevertheless, hoping it will be worth the wait.


Unlike the action-packed video game, the TV series will focus more on the relationship development between the two main leads. Surely there will be action but not as much. Speaking on the show, Neil said, ” We are trying to move away from hardcore action and focus more on the drama of the character. Some of my favourite episodes so far have deviated greatly from the story, and I can’t wait for people to see them.”
