Bella Ramsey has been cast as Ellie in HBO’s The Last of Us. The Last of Us is being helmed by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann.
Ellie is a 14-year old orphan whom Joel is tasked with escorting through a quarantine zone.
Ramsey is best known for her role as Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones. In addition to Game of Thrones, Ramsey has also appeared in His Dark Materials, Hilda, The Worst Witch, Holmes & Watson, Judy, and Resistance.
I loved Bella Ramsey as Lyanna Mormont, she stole every scene she appeared in. The only other thing I have seen her in is His Dark Materials, I’m excited to see what she does with Ellie. I think Pascal and Ramsey are going to be fantastic together, Im very pleased with this casting.
The project is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television. PlayStation Productions, Word Games, and Naughty Dog are set to produce. The Last of Us is the first television series from PlayStation Productions. Filming on The Last of Us has not yet started. We can expect the series to premiere sometime next year.
