The 2013 action-adventure game Naughty Dog largely focuses on the growing relationship between Joel and his adopted daughter, Ellie. But that story could never have happened without one of its most important supporting characters, Tess. Joel meets Tess after his daughter’s death, and the two strike up a romance. While working as smugglers, they were given a mission to deliver something to a rebel militia known as the Fireflies. The “something” was none other than Ellie. Once Tess realizes that this little girl with immunity may be humanity’s only hope, she will do everything in her power to keep Ellie safe.
Ready for some damage because they are coming. Tess didn’t last long in the original game. While smuggling Ellie, Tess was bitten by one of the Infected. Knowing she had only a few minutes to live, Tess sacrificed her life and fought the soldiers chasing them, giving Joel and Ellie a chance to escape. It is Tess’s sacrifice that convinces Joel to complete his mission and take care of Ellie, even if he initially distrusts her immunity.
This mean, calculating woman with a secret heart of gold will be playing by an actor who knows this particular story well. Torv blew critics away as Dr. Wendy Carr in Netflix’s Mind hunter. Before that, the actor played the lead role in Edge as Olivia Dunham and Secret City as Harriet Dunkley. Torv also has some of her own video game credits. She acts as the voice of Nariko in Bao sword.
Beyond Torv, HBO’s Our Last will star Pedro Pascal as the emotionally distant and gruff Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, the often silly surrogate daughter who changes his life. Gabriel Luna will play Tommy, Joel’s brother. The first season will consist of 10 episodes, written by Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin and Our Last Neil Druckmann’s game. In eight numbers a set, it is rumored that it could emerge as the most expensive HBO series to date. With this amazing cast and the financial backing of one of the biggest paid networks around, you can bet we’re ready to scream.
