What is The Last of Us from HBO about?
The world’s population has been almost completely wiped out by an infection with a fungus. A Texan man named Joel is given the job of smuggling the 14-year-old girl Ellie out of a quarantine zone suppressed by the U.S. military. This job increasingly puts the man and the little girl to the test and becomes a bitter struggle for survival. The Last of Us tells the exciting and, at the same time, very touching cohesion of two people in a bleak, post-apocalyptic environment.
Game of Thrones actor duo
Actor Pedro Pascal, whom we know from Game of Thrones, slips into the role of Texan Joel. The 14-year-old girl Ellie is played by the young British actress Bella Ramsay, who also made a very successful acting debut in the role of Lyanna Mormont in GoT.
The other roles also have a top cast with actress Nico Parker (“The Third Day”) as Sarah, Gabriel Luna (“True Detective”) as Tommy, Murray Bartlett (“The White Lotus”) as Frank, Anna Torv (“Mindhunter”) as Tess.
Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t tell us yet when exactly the Series will start. However, we already know that it will start on HBO somewhen in 2023.
