THE LAST OF US Set Photos Provide Our Best Look Yet At Pedro Pascal As Joel & Bella Ramsey As Ellie
Some more photos from the Edmonton set of HBO's The Last of Us adaptation have been shared online, and this time we get a much better look at stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey and Anna Torv in-costume.
Production on HBO's upcoming adaptation of the acclaimed The Last of Us video games continues in Edmonton, Canada, and some more photos from the set have now been shared online, giving us our best look yet at the show's leads in costume.
The recent official promo image only teased our first glimpse of Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie by showing the characters with their backs to the camera, but the central pair, along with Anna Torv as Joel's partner Tess, can be seen face-on here as they share a joke between takes. Thanks to The Last of Us Updates Twitter page, we also have a brief video of the trio setting up for a shot.
Check out the photos below.

Pascal, Ramsey and Torv join Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, and Nico Parker as Joel's daughter Sarah.
The Last of Us is set 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and centers on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who may be key to a cure for a deadly pandemic. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the game's creator Neil Druckmann are writing and executive producing the show. The first season will adapt the events of the original game, but is also expected to include elements of the sequel. Druckmann recently confirmed that the series will take some liberties with the story.
The first season will consist of 10 episodes and is expected to air in 2022.
