You’ve heard it here first; The Last Of Us is set to become your next cult-favourite show, bringing all the thrills and spills that will have you itching for the next episode release.
The post-apocalyptic drama, which you can start streaming now on Foxtel, breathes life into the video game of the same name, showcasing it in an entirely new light.
Not to mention, if you’re an avid fan of the game you’ll want to see how faithful the tv adaptation is to the storyline, themes and of course, the casting.
So, to see how the cast looks in the show and how they compare to their original video-game characters, keep scrolling.
The cast of The Last Of Us
Pedro Pascal as Joel Miller
Needing no introduction, Pedro Pascal is best known for his role as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones, and has since starred in several other hit series including Narcos and The Mandalorian.
Bella Ramsey as Ellie
Another Game of Thrones alum, Bella Ramsey is best known for her breakthrough role as young noblewoman Lyanna Mormont in the HBO fantasy. She also stars in Catherine Called Birdy and Becoming Elizabeth.
Nico Parker as Sarah, Joel’s daughter
Nico Parker made her film debut as Milly Farrier in Tim Burton’s Dumbo, and has since gone on to star in The Third Day and Reminiscence.
Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Joel’s younger brother
Gabriel Luna is best known for his roles as Robbie Reyes / Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tony Bravo in Matador, Paco Contreras in Wicked City, and Rev-9 in Terminator: Dark Fate.
Anna Torv as Tess, Joel’s partner
You may recognise Aussie actress Anna Torv from her role as Olivia Dunham in Fringe, for which she was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series and received four Saturn Awards for Best Actress on Television. She also starred as Wendy Carr in the Netflix crime thriller series Mindhunter.
Merle Dandridge as Marlene, the leader of the Fireflies
She voices Marlene in the video games The Last of Us: Part I and Part II, and Merle Dandridge reprises her role for the tv adaptation. She comes with a long list of tv credits, including appearances in Greenleaf, Sons of Anarchy and The Night Shift.
Nick Offerman as Bill, a survivalist
We may never look at Nick Offerman without associating him with his role as Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation – for which he received the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy and was twice nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series – but that’s not to say he hasn’t made his mark elsewhere.
His first major television role following the end of Parks and Recreation was in Fargo, for which he received a nomination for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie/Miniseries.
Murray Bartlett as Frank, Bill’s partner
We loved him as Armond in The White Lotus, a role that saw him win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, but you may recognise Murray Bartlett from his appearances in Looking, Tales of the City, Physical and Welcome to Chippendales.
