The Last of Us TV series headed to HBO has found its leads. The Mandalorian‘s Pedro Pascal will play main character Joel, while Game of Thrones breakout Bella Ramsey will play Ellie, a teenage girl Joel is protecting. The show is based on the popular, bleak video game set in a post-apocalyptic United States ravaged by “hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated fungus.” Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin is writing the script with game writer Neil Druckmann. Beanpole helmer Kantemir Balagov is directing the pilot.
