The filming of the series The Last of Us is finished ! But the HBO adaptation is far from having told us everything about it. A Twitter account may have spotted a clue that would confirm the rumor about the appearance of a character never seen before.
Series The Last of Us : Ellie’s mother really in the casting?
A few weeks ago, a user suggested that we could see Ellie’s mother in the series The Last of Us. And it would be a real event. We have never seen her in The Last of Us nor even in the American Dreams comics.
It turns out that Taylor Henrich, a stuntwoman, has to double a certain Anna in one of the episodes… Anna just like Ellie’s mother. @HBOsTheLastofUs wonders if Anna is referring to Anna Torv, who plays Tess.
But at first sight this track does not hold. Indeed, if this were the case, the IMDB file should display in full Anna Torv. On that of Kailey Hyman, physical understudy of Nico Parker (Sarah), it is clearly specified that she replaces Nico Parker for the most eventful scenes.
Ashley Johnson in the role?
Without information, the speculation machine is going well. A resemblance between Taylor Henrich and Ashley Johnson, Ellie’s voice actor in the games who will be in the series with Troy Baker (Joel), has been pointed out. When the two actors made a brief appearance during the announcement of The Last of Us Part 1, some noticed Ashley Johnson’s hair color change. Her hair has changed from its natural blond to a color closer to this “American Daughters” artwork that shows Anna, Ellie’s mother.
This illustration is an easter egg found in Uncharted 4: At Thief’s End. So is it possible? We may have the answer in early 2023, the expected release date for the series. The Last of Us.
In the meantime, you can (re)discover the first episode in a new light with the PS5 remake. And maybe even buy the coveted collector’s item.
