We now officially have our Ellie for HBO’s upcoming The Last Of Us TV series adaptation, and it’ll be none other than Bella Ramsey, who is best known for her role as the fierce and feisty Lyanna Mormont in Game Of Thrones.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bella Ramsey has been officially cast as Ellie in HBO’s The Last Of Us. There have also been recent rumours of Mahershala Ali being cast but that turned out to be false, as a deal was never made. In case you also forgot, Bella Ramsey’s Lyanna Mormont was iconic for her speech supporting Jon Snow as the King In The North and for dying while killing a giant in the final season of Game Of Thrones.
HBO’s The Last Of Us will be written and executive produced by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and the original game director Neil Druckmann. It will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions, Word Games, and Naughty Dog.
There is no release date as of yet.
