Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey are receiving a lot of praise for their performances in The Last of Us , where they play Joel and Ellie .


Well, HBO capitalizes on their fame with a cute video where they answer various questions that help them get to know each other better.

Both, however, were part of the cast of Game of Thrones , and joke about how they would have used the clothes of their respective characters ( Oberyn Martell and Lyanna Mormont ) in the apocalyptic context of the series.

We recently saw a trailer dedicated to the coming weeks and the backstage of the second episode , together with the spot for the third . In addition, Doc Manhattan has dedicated another insight into the differences between the series and the Naughty Dog video game .

I remind you that the third episode, entitled Long Long Time , will last a good 76 minutes: it will be broadcast on Sunday 29 January in the USA, and on Monday 30 January in Italy. In the meantime, you can watch the video below.


The plot

The Last of Us takes place twenty years after the fall of modern civilization, when a fungal parasite infects humans and turns them into monsters. Joel , a man hardened by the will to survive, is hired to escort 14-year-old Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone. It should be an easy job, but it soon becomes a dangerous and brutal journey: together, Joel and Ellie will have to cross what is left of the United States and rely on each other to escape death.
