And just like that, we now know the actors who will play Joel and Ellie in HBO’s TV adaptation of The Last of Us. Earlier today, it was confirmed that Bella Ramsey is Ellie.
As for Joel? Well, it’s The Mandalorian himself: Pedro Pascal.
Pascal is also well known for his role as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones, so he and Ramsey (also a Games of Thrones star) should know each other well enough.
This casting confirmation also puts to bed rumours that True Detective actor Mahershala Ali had landed the part of Joel.
Now that we know who the show’s two leads are, do you have high hopes for The Last of Us? Listen for clickers in the comments section below.
