Joel Miller — Pedro Pascal

Pascal played for many years mostly in police procedurals like CSI and Law & Order. The role of Oberyn Martell in the «Game of Thrones» was a breakthrough for the actor of Chilean origin. After her, he became much more in demand: he caught Pablo Escobar in Narcos, was imbued with feelings for Grog in The Mandalorian, was a fan of Nicolas Cage in The Unbearable Weight of Great Talent. The actor managed to play in two versions of «Wonder Woman» — the role of Ed Indelicato in the failed pilot of the 2011 series is especially noteworthy.

In the novelty, he plays Joel Miller, a smuggler and a man without faith, who meets the teenager Ellie and gradually becomes more humane and kinder. The actor specifically did not play in the original project in order to embody his own image of the hero.

Ellie Williams – Bella Ramsey

Bella is only 19 years old, and she has already achieved remarkable roles. It all started with Game of Thrones, where the small role of Lyanna Mormont was significantly expanded after meeting the young actress. Then she appeared in «His Dark Materials» and played a medieval princess who does not want to get married in the comedy «Catherine Birdie» by Lena Dunham.

The main role in «The Last of Us» is an undoubted success for the British. At the beginning of the show, Ellie is a sarcastic teenager who spent several years in military school. Suddenly she is bitten by a zombie, but after 3 weeks the girl has not turned. After getting the role, Bella was asked not to play The Last of Us, and she limited herself to a banal viewing of the passage to understand the plot.

Tess – Anna Torv

Anna Torv has so few roles that one wonders — she is a strong actress! Even at the end of the 2000s, she played an FBI agent who constantly encountered the paranormal. The Fringe series is one of the best procedurals, and Anna was its main star. 4 years after the end of the sci-fi show, Torv signed on to work from Fincher — «Mindhunter». This is not the main, but the key role of an experienced psychologist who analyzes interviews of serial killers at the turn of the 70s and 80s.

Now Anna has embodied the image of Tess — Joel’s partner and his close friend. Tess is stern and determined, she survives at all costs and only tolerates the same people nearby, which is why she got along with Joel.

Marlin — Merle Dandridge

A rare case when the voice actress from the original work was called to embody the image on the TV screen! In addition, she received cameos in a ton of police shows, shone in Lie to Me, Suits and The News Service. In the early 2000s, the actress also worked with Valve on the character Alyx Vance, whom she gave voice to.

Dandridge has known the heroine Marlene for more than 10 years, the cold-blooded and determined leader of the Boston Cicadas cell. Her organization is not going to tolerate the military dictatorship of FEDRA and hopes to return freedom and democracy to society.

Tommy Miller — Gabriel Luna

Luna is an aspiring actor, but has already managed to be remembered for the role of the villain-terminator REV-9 in Terminator: Dark Fate. Recently, he was lucky enough to pass the casting and become part of the HBO show. In addition, he is a fan of the series and even went through both games in the mode of permanent death before filming — when any death is punished by starting from the very beginning!

In The Last of Us, Gabriel will play Joel’s brother Tommy. The relationship between the brothers is complex and clearly strained. Once Tommy went to Wyoming, but now he does not get in touch and Joel is seriously worried.

Bill – Nick Offerman

Nick is a supporting king and has starred in over 100 films and shows throughout his career. It’s easier to remember where he wasn’t, but he played in The West Wing, Gilmore Girls, Deadwood, Gravity Falls and Fargo. However, you remember him as Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation, a bully and a sociopath who hates his job.

In the new HBO release, Offerman was cast as Bill. According to the game, this is an unsociable person who lives alone in the town of Lincoln, while strewn with traps for people and zombies and trusts almost no one. In the series, his character will obviously get much more time, including due to the disclosure of his relationship with Frank.

Frank – Murray Bartlett

The White Lotus star recently won his first Emmy, but has been filming since the early 2000s. In his filmography «Sex and the City», «White Collar» and «In Search». In an interview, Bartlett noted that «the script of the series is human and tender, despite the zombies, and it will be really something special!»

Frank’s character did not appear in the game, he was only mentioned in a note that Ellie found in Lincoln. Apparently, in the series we will see their relationship with Bill and the difficult life in a zombie apocalypse.
