It looks like one more actress has joined the upcoming HBO adaptation of the popular gaming franchise The Last Of Us. Y: The Last Man actress Natasha Mumba updated her Instagram profile to include her role in the upcoming series. She even adds the name of her character, Kim Tembo. Fans of the gaming franchise might notice that this character hasn’t appeared in one of the two games and might be another invention for the series.
As this is the only news we have on her joining the project, it opens up the question of what kind of role she might have. There’s a good chance she may play a member of the Fireflies or the event offer a unique take on some familiar storylines. The core of the original story was isolation. So, it’s uncertain if this version takes a unique approach to explore how exactly she fits into the story. It’s great to see Mumba join the production hot off the tail of her success on series Y: The Last Man and The Handmaiden’s Tale. It’ll be interesting to see her dynamic with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.
