The Last of Us series star Bella Ramsey describes what it's like to work with co-star Pedro Pascal
The actress best known for her role in Game of Thrones spoke about working on the new show and her co-star.
The production for the live-action adaption of The Last of US wrapped last month, the series is based on the critically acclaimed video game franchise.
The show was announced by HBO in 2020 with a 10-episode run written by Chornobyl’s Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann (writer and director of both The Last of Us games).
In a recent interview, the actress spoke about working on the first season of the show and was all praises of her co-star.
The Last of Us is set in the post-apocalyptic United States where humanity has mostly been wiped out by a virus, Joel a hardened survivor is tasked with escorting a young girl named Ellie who is immune to the virus across the wasteland to create a cure.
The series took over a year to complete film, giving the cast plenty of time to close friendships, in a recent interview with Screen Rant Ramsey recalled working with Perdo Pascal saying he is funny and generous.
"It was the longest show I've ever been on. It was 11 months shooting for me, and the rest of the team were there for over a year, I think. I feel like when you're with a group of people for that long, the connections that you formulate and the friendships are so solid and special. It was really hard to say goodbye to everybody at the end. It was such a good experience."
"And working with Pedro was so fun. He's hilarious. He's probably one of the funniest people I've ever met. He's also incredibly generous. That's the word that comes to mind when I think of Pedro. He's so generous with his words, with his time, and with his actions. He's just a super cool person to be around, and he definitely made the set a fun place to be. We had a lot of great conversations."
According to the showrunners, the series will tone down the action to focus on the drama, which is understandable as one of the big highlights of the games was the complex relationship between the characters epically Joel and Ellie.
The cast of the show includes Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Gabriel Luna, Merle Dandridge, Jeffrey Pierce, and Anna Torv.
The Last of US is set to release on HBO Max in early 2023.
