Storm Reid (“Euphoria,” “The Invisible Man”) has joined HBO’s television series adaptation of the acclaimed video game “The Last of Us.”
Reid landed the key role of Ellie’s friend Riley Abel, one of the remaining human survivors in Boston. The pair’s relationship is the central focus of the ‘Left Behind’ DLC and shows events just weeks before the game’s main story.
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 continues in Calgary ahead of its late 2022 premiere on HBO and HBO Max.
