The first season of The Last of Us just ended, but season two, already ordered, is already on everyone’s mind. It will take patience, of course, but fans are already wondering which actors will be chosen to portray the new characters in the upcoming episodes adapting the second opus of the video game franchise. The Last of Us: Part II.
Some believe they have already found the perfect interpreter for Abby Anderson, the main character of the second video game. But it won’t be the only character that will be transferred to The Last of Us sequel in the TV adventure.
Other video game actors in the rest of the series?
In the first season of The Last of Us, we already found video game actors returning to reprise their roles, such as Merle Dandridge (Marlene). But some also had a pleasant surprise playing other characters. Thus, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the games, is Anna, Ellie’s mother; Troy Baker, who plays Joel in the games, voices James; Jeffrey Pearce, who plays Tommy in the games, plays Perry.
Finally, Laura Bailey is a special case because she plays Abby in the second video game, but at the end of the game she also plays a nurse, a role she took on in the operating room scene where Joel (Pedro Pascal) is killed by the surgeon who was about to operate on Ellie (Bella Ramsey) in the last episode .
The actors of the second video game The Last of Us have announced that they want to return to their roles in the next episodes of the series. This is the case of Ian Alexander, known for his roles as Bucky in The OA and Gray in Star Trek: Discovery.
In The Last of Us: Part IIThis transgender and non-binary actor plays Levi, a transgender boy who was a member of the Seraphite clan. Ian Alexander stated this in an interviewDuring which he wore a pendant reminiscent of the game to be “thankful” for being a part of the Naughty Dog franchise.
He explained that he was a fan of the adaptation and wanted to be in it: “I’m glad they’re making the LGBTQ representation clearer and fairer…clearly queer. I’d love to see it. Fingers crossed I can play Levi again”.
Another face of the second video game, actress Victoria Grace, who plays Levi’s sister Yara, also toldThat would be it “dream come true” He was approached by HBO to reprise his role in the series adaptation.
As of now, no casting information has been revealed for The Last of Us Season 2, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazzini call on other video game comedians to take over their roles or portray new characters.
The first season of The Last of Us is available on Prime Video.
