Following the arrival of The Last of Us Part II’s new trailer during Paris Games Week, developer Naughty Dog has revealed some of the actors featuring in its upcoming highly anticipated title.
The Last of Us developer took to Twitter to share the information, confirming the identity of actors that played different characters in its Paris Games Week trailer.
Victoria Grace plays the character known as Yara, Ian Alexander is Lev and Emily Swallow is Emily (see below).
Unlike the other actors and their characters, however, Naughty Dog chose not to reveal the name of Bailey’s character. The developer’s only hint to the character’s identity is that her name is four letters long.
According to several Twitter users, they believe that the unnamed character is called Anna.
There is ongoing speculation that the character in the trailer is none other than Ellie’s mother. Naughty Dog has not confirmed whether this character is actually Ellie’s mother, though.
The Last of Us Part II, which is a sequel to Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed 2013 title, first debuted at PlayStation Experience in 2016.
Earlier this year, the voice actors for The Last of Us duo Joel and Ellie — Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson respectively — confirmed that motion capture sessions for The Last of Us Part II were under way.
The Last of Us Part II will launch exclusively on PlayStation 4.
Hardcore Gamer’s review for The Last of Us praised Naughty Dog for how it tackled “the medium in ways that only [Hideo] Kojima’s finest moments have attempted before. It feels like an important evolutionary step in presentation and tone, presenting a believable narrative populated with realistic characters, structured in a way that remains captivating until the last word is spoken.”
