news culture The Last of Us: the HBO series would have cast a character appreciated by fans
The more time passes, the more the series The Last of Us seems to show authenticity. Today, we learn that an important character in Ellie’s story could well be integrated into the story…
Riley in The Last of Us series
The least we can say is that the series The Last of Us wants to respect the video game devilishly, or at least that’s what the many information about it suggests. Today, a new clue testifies to HBO’s desire to stick as closely as possible to the plot developed by Naughty Dog. with the likely arrival of a new cast member.
The person in question is none other than Storm Reid., a young eighteen-year-old American actress known for her roles in Euphoria, A Shortcut in Time or Don’t Let Go: she would visibly slip into the skin of Riley, one of the central characters of The Last of Us: Left Behind and one of Ellie’s closest people during her childhood.
At least, that’s what everyone agrees after his mother posted a message on instagram, indicating its presence in Canada (country in which the filming of the series takes place) for “a popular video game adapted as a series”. Very clearly, this appears to be for The Last of Us.
Big cast for The Last of Us series
Storm Reid would therefore join an already well-developed cast, with 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 Merle Dandridge (Greenleaf) to slip into the skin of Marlène . Nick Offerman, known for his famous role as Ron Swanson in the Parks & Recreation series, will play Bill.
We are inevitably very curious to appreciate the result, especially since the set will be driven 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 don’t yet have a precise release date, but the shooting having already started last summer, the hopes of seeing the ten episodes land this year are real.
