The long-awaited live-action series inspired by The Last of Us video games has already chosen the stars that will bring the protagonists Ellie and Joel to life. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, both known for their appearances on Game of Thrones, will be responsible for playing the two main characters in the HBO series.
Pedro Pascal recently came to the fore when he also starred in the Disney + Star Wars series, The Mandalorian: The actor will now assume the role of Joel Miller as confirmed by Naughty Dog creative director and writer Neil Druckmann.
Bella Ramsey won the audience through her interpretation of the brave Lyanna Mormont in the popular Game of Thrones series, also from HBO.
The Last of Us series chooses luxury actors for lead roles
The series of The Last of Us was officially confirmed during the past year. It will be written and produced by the creative director of the studio responsible for video games and Chernobyl writer Craig Mazin.
This live-action work will cover the events of the original game, but it is possible that it will address some elements of the sequel released last year and which is already the most awarded video game of all time.
A premiere is expected only next year, a perspective that can be changed due to the difficulties with filming, taking into account the current pandemic scenario.
The Last of Us is one of the most established franchises ever
Any fan of video games, even if they don’t choose PlayStation as their platform of choice, will have heard of these video games.
The first entry marked the PlayStation 3 generation and left no one indifferent with its history based on the struggle for survival and the bonds created between a man hardened by life in a post-apocalyptic scenario and a girl with a very special peculiarity.
HBO did not hesitate to embrace this project with the certainty of guaranteeing a large and enthusiastic audience right away with the possibility of seeing Ellie and Joel on the small screen.
