Storm Reid (“Euphoria,” “The Invisible Man”) has joined HBO’s TV series adaptation of acclaimed video game “The Last of Us”.
Reid has scored the key role of Ellie’s friend Riley Abel, one of the remaining human survivors located in Boston. The pair’s relationship is the central focus of the ‘Left Behind’ DLC and shows events just a few weeks before the main story of the game.
Reid joins a cast that already includes Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Anna Torv, Merle Dandrige, Nick Offerman, Gabriel Luna and Murray Bartlett among others and hails from writer/producer Craig Mazin and game creator Neil Druckmann.
Production on the series is continuing in Calgary ahead of a late 2022 premiere on HBO and HBO Max.
