The series stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, and Gabriel Luna as Uncle Tommy, among many more talented cast members who bring classic scenes from the game to the live-action realm of Hollywood streaming.
Mazin who co-writes with Naughty Dog’s original game creator Neil Druckmann revealed the new casting information when speaking with L.A. Times, see below.
TLOU’s Abby Cast For Season 2
While talking to L.A. Times, Mazin confirmed that somebody has indeed been cast as Abby for the second season of the streamer’s The Last of Us series.
Mazin stayed tight-lipped as usual and revealed not even a hint as to who will be playing her, whether it’s somebody well-known or a newcomer remains unclear.
While working on The Last of Us, Mazin also has his hands full with the Dune movies as well as recently penning the script for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 6, which he also confirmed was completed prior to the ongoing strikes.
When Will Abby’s Casting Be Announced?
As for when the cast and crew of HBO’s The Last of Us season 2 plan on announcing who will be playing its big bad antagonist Abby is currently unknown.
The studio could technically announce it whenever they want, however, it’s safe to assume that large announcements such as this will be kept secret until after the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes come to find a reasonable resolution.
Due to Mazin’s professional and talented skill at keeping spoilers close to his chest, there hasn’t even been a hint as to who will be playing the live-action Abby.
