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.
