Last Of Us TV Show Has Now Cast Joel’s Daughter

The role of Joel’s daughter has finally been cast in the upcoming The Last of Us TV series from HBO. But who has been cast in the role?

So far, we have had numerous stars cast as leading characters in the HBO series. Pedro Pascal of The Mandalorian and Game of Thrones will be playing Joel Miller. And Bella Ramsey also of Game of Thrones will be playing a young Ellie.

Additionally, Merle Dandridge has been cast as Marlene. This casting choice is perfect in my opinion because Merle Dandridge was the voice of Marlene in the video game series. Finally, Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) has been cast in the role of Tommy, who is Joel’s brother.

Who is nico parker?

As reported by Deadline, the role of Sarah will be played by Nico Parker, who is perhaps better known for playing Milly Farrier in the live-action Disney’s Dumbo remake from 2019. Here is an added fun fact, Nico Parker is also the real-life daughter of Thandiwe Newton of Westworld and Mission: Impossible II.

It will be interesting to see how much of a role Joel’s daughter (Sarah) will play in the HBO adaptation and how old she will be. At the time of writing, Nico Parker who will play Sarah is 16 years old.

When can we expect to see The Last of Us HBO series?

At this time we still don’t have a date, but hopefully, we can expect to see the HBO series launch in 2022. Furthermore, while the series is expected to somewhat follow the events of the video game series, it will also feature content cut from the games.
