Merle Dandridge returning as Marlene in ‘The Last of Us’ adaptation

Actor Merle Dandridge, who played Marlene in ‘The Last of Us’ game, will reprise the character in HBO’s upcoming series adaptation.

HBO had given a series order to the project, which hails from Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and game’s writer Neil Druckmann, in November 2020.

Dandridge joins the show’s cast which also includes Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie and Gabriel Luna as Tommy, reported Variety. ”The Last of Us”, which was launched in 2013, takes place 20 years after modern civilisation has been destroyed.

Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the US and depend on each other for survival.

Kantemir Balagov is directing the pilot episode of ”The Last Of Us”, a co-production with Sony Pictures Television. It will be produced by PlayStation Productions, Word Games, The Mighty Mint, and Naughty Dog.
