The Last of Us: Left Behind’s Riley will feature in HBO’s upcoming television adaptation of Naughty Dog’s smash hit, played by Euphoria and A Wrinkle in Time star Storm Reid. Deadline exclusively revealed the news overnight, confirming that the 18-year-old American actress will make a guest appearance in the forthcoming series.
This effectively confirms that the plot of the show will follow some of the events from the aforementioned DLC campaign, as well as Neil Druckmann’s comic book spin-off, The Last of Us: American Dreams. Left Behind is set shortly before the events of the main game, and depicts Ellie’s first relationship, as well as her exposure to the infection.
Filming of the show is currently ongoing in Canada, with Pedro Pascal playing Joel and Bella Ramsey starring as Ellie. There’s no release date attached just yet, but HBO has undoubtedly assembled a star-studded cast, with the likes of Anna Torv, Nico Parker, Gabriel Luna, and more also on board. Hopefully we get to see a sneak peek soon.

I really enjoyed her performance in Euphoria. Very excited for this one!
Give credit to Faith Erin Hicks on America Dream, too. There's no comic without the artist.
Anna Torv is in it?! Marvellous. I've long wanted to see her in more things since the magnificent Fringe.
@LimitedPower same! This show can't come soon enough!
@Integrity She is! She's playing Tess!
@get2sammyb oh no! That means tears of joy AND of sorrow 😭😁
This news makes me want to watch Fringe again
I've never seen Euphoria but everyone between 18 and 25 with an acting career seems to be in it. Is it like some kind of national service thing?
Anyway, I'm sure she's great. Can't wait for the series and I'm very hyped.
@Johnnycide it's the modern day Grange Hill 😊
She's great in Euphoria.
@Integrity not often I meet another Fringe fan! It remains my favourite show. Cheers!
@Jimmer-jammer Fringe is up there with Battlestar Galactica for me as best sci-fi on TV. And Walter is an absolute treasure!
@Integrity John Noble took what could have been a stereotypical ‘mad’ scientist and made something truly special out of the role. Looked like he was having the time of his life.
@Jimmer-jammer yes, he played it perfectly. Humorous, humble, determined, with great pathos, desperation and sincerity. And then Walternate he reinvented him brilliantly, made him ruthless, cold but never losing his humanity and in the end you completely identified with him and saw Walter for the weak, selfish man he was. Probably John Noble's best work just for the sheer range he had to show.
She’s fantastic in Euphoria for sure.
@get2sammyb She's in Euphoria and you lead with A Wrinkle in Time? That is so you. 😂
@Integrity If you want more Anna Torv why wait? She is fantastic in the excellent Mindhunter. Highly recommended.
Also yes, Fringe. One of my absolute favourites.
@Integrity fully agreed!
Strange that she actually sort of resembles her but the main characters are way off
The actors don't have to look exactly like their source material. I'd rather take great actors that can play the characters well without looking exactly the same over actors who look dead on but otherwise don't bring the characters to life.
@Integrity +10 for mentioning Grange Hill on a PS website!
I haven't seen Euphoria but looking forward to her acting!
