A well-known character will return from the game in the long-awaited HBO series adaptation of The Last of Us. This will even be embodied by the same actress.
Anyone who has gambled The Last of Us will recognize a character from the upcoming TV series on US broadcaster HBO very quickly. Merle Dandrige, who already provided Marlene with her appearance in the Naughty Dog title, will now also play the role in the series.
Marlene is the leader of the resistance movement called Fireflies. If you watch the series after its completion, then the voice of Merle Dandrige will also be heard directly.
The actress has made a name for herself in the game industry in general, as she was also responsible for setting Alyx Vance in the Half-Life games or as Legion Commander and Winter Wyvern in Dota 2. Evelny from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was also voiced by Dandrige.
Another new addition to the cast was confirmed with Gabriel Luna; he will play Joel’s younger brother, Tommy. Previously, the two main roles Joel and Ellie with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, both known from “Game of Thrones”, had already been cast for the TV adaptation.
