May 28, 2021
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Merle Dandridge, who voiced Marlene in both the original 2013 game and last year’s sequel of The Last of Us, will reprise the role in the HBO scripted drama series.

The Last of Us revolves around the relationship between Joel (Pedro Pascal, The Mandalorian), a hardened survivor of the collapse of modern civilization 20 years ago, and 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey, Game of Thrones), whom he’s hired to smuggle out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

Dandridge’s Marlene is the head of the Fireflies, a resistance movement struggling for freedom against an oppressive military regime. She joins a cast that also includes Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Joel’s younger brother.

Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director of the games and Craig Mazin are penning the scripts for the series. Mazin and Druckmann will executive produce alongside the Mighty Mint’s Carolyn Strauss, Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells, PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan, and Rose Lam. Jasmila Zbanic and Ali Abbasi are attached to direct the series, which is a co-production between Sony Pictures TV, PlayStation, Word Games, the Mighty Mint and Druckmann’s Naughty Dog.
