The Last Of Us has been busy filming for its release on HBO. The video game adaptation will retell the story of Joel and Ellie, as they travel across the post-apocalyptic United States to potentially find a cure to the disease turning people into fungal zombies. They have found most of their cast, but it seems that they had one more announcement ready as Storm Reid, known for her work on Euphoria and A Wrinkle in Time, has joined the project in the role of Riley.
The series is created by the game’s original creator Neil Druckman and Chernobyl‘s Craig Mazin, as Pedro Pascal takes on the role of Joel with Bella Ramsey as Ellie. Reid will have a guest role in the series as Riley Abel, an orphaned girl from Boston. She doesn’t feature in the main storyline but was part of the game’s first DLC titled Left Behind. She’s part of Ellie’s backstory before she ends up meeting with Joel. It’s uncertain if intertwining these storylines or we spend some time with Ellie before she ends up meeting with her reluctant father figure.
