Gabriel Luna Joins Cast of HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’ Series Starring Pedro Pascal


Another casting announcement has been made for HBO’s upcoming series adaptation of The Last of Us. Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) is the latest to join the roster for this highly anticipated show.

The show is based on Naughty Dog’s popular action-adventure survival video game, which first landed on the PlayStation console back in 2013. The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic story set 20 years after civilization has been torn apart by a fungal-based, brain-altering pandemic.

Leading the series is The Mandalorian‘s own Pedro Pascal, who will portray the main protagonist Joel, a black market smuggler. He will be joined by Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones), who is taking on the role of Joel’s 14-year-old charge Ellie. In the game, she’s a girl who’s immune to the virus and might just be the key to the vaccine. As for Luna, he will portray Tommy Miller, Joel’s younger brother.

The Last of Us is being developed by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann, the director of the game the series is based on and co-president of Naughty Dog.

Stay tuned for more news on HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
