Production of HBO's live-action television series based on Naughty Dog's The Last of Us video game is well underway. Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) will star as Joel and Ellie, and the cast also includes Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess and, just last month, the series added Nick Offerman as Bill.

Though it has been stated that the first season will cover the events of the original The Last of Us video game, the series may also be dipping into the prequel DLC expansion, The Last of Us: Left Behind. You see, the character of Riley was only name-dropped during The Last of Us, but The Last of Us: Left Behind revolved around her and Ellie.

Recently, actress Storm Reid arrived in Canada at the same time the cast and crew of HBO's The Last of Us series returned to Calgary to continue production (via The Last of Us Updates). As if that wasn't suspicious enough, Reid's mother posted a photo to Instagram upon arriving in the country and the caption mentions a certain "popular video game turned into a television series."

Furthermore, Ellie actress Bella Ramsey and Reid follow each other on social media. There's no mention of Riley throughout any of this, but Reid matches the character's description to a tee and is the same age as Ramsey, which has led to a lot of online speculation.

Reid is best known for portraying Rue's sister, Gia, in HBO series Euphoria and also played a minor role in The Suicide Squad as Bloodsport's daughter, Tyla.

Great casting, if true. She's pretty great in everything I've seen her in, even her little appearance in The Suicide Squad.

@AmazingFILMporg - The fight with that wookie bounty hunter and getting a Rancor was great but everything else was bad.

Hate to say it, but the Joel story in LOU2 really just tainted the whole thing for me. I know it shouldn't, but it really turned me off of the whole thing, and I hate it cuz it was very compelling to that point, and I'm sure the show will be pretty good.

Don't necessarily want to see the whole of Left Behind too, but seeing flashbacks to it could really elevate the story or plotpoints if utilized well.

Still also wonder how much of the game we'll see in the first season. Kinda think the summer and autumn parts of the game make a nice story for the first season.

I was really enjoying playing the first game but it's just kinda drags.... on... and on. I was ready for it to end and it just kept going and I got bored and dropped the game.

@AmazingFILMporg You mean to tell me you didn't appreciate Boba coming out and tightening his Mandalorian robe after Black Krrsantan was captured? I'm still in shock over that !
