HBO has released a trailer for The Last of Us. The trailer features new footage that shows Melanie Lynskey, Yellowjackets’ star, taking on a crucial role in the adaptation of the video game. Below is the trailer which gives us our best glimpse yet of the series. We can see many of the cast, including Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, as well as other cast members. But we also have a clear shot of Lynskey as she turns toward the camera.
Although most cast members were already known during production, Lynskey and her Last of Us crew managed to keep Lynskey’s casting secret until this point. Lynskey posted the message “Surprise!” after sharing the trailer on Twitter.
Neil Druckmann, The Last of Us creator, replied by saying “OMG! You crushed your episodes! I can’t wait to see your character!
