Westworld actress Shannon Woodward is playing Dina in The Last of Us: Part II, but you may have noticed that the star doesn’t really look like her in-game counterpart. That’s because Naughty Dog actually face-scanned Cascina Caradonna for the character model, as revealed in the YouTube vlog embedded below.

Get beyond Caradonna’s infectious enthusiasm and there’s actually quite a lot of meat in this video, as she talks about the process behind her inclusion and even shares some side-by-side comparisons. She also touches upon the darker side of the gaming community, as she reels off online comments criticising the character and subsequently her appearance.

You can learn more about the performers in the game courtesy of our The Last of Us 2: Full Cast List summary, and you can also see more of Cascina as she's playing through the original game on YouTube right now. Oh, and for much more on Naughty Dog's latest, check out our The Last of Us 2 guide.
