Videos games have been a part of pop culture ever since they were introduced about half-a-century ago. Many of them have become so popular, they have been converted into films and TV shows, the most recent example being HBO’s TV adaptation, The Last of Us. It is one of the most ambitious shows being filmed currently by the streaming giant, whose budget even exceeds that of the Emmy-winning juggernaut Game of Thrones. And fans are getting really excited about the series, as pictures from the set are leaking all over the internet.
For the first time since the production began, we have a full costumed look at Joel, played by none other than Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal.

A few days ago, HBO posted a picture on their official Twitter handle, depicting the first look at the TV adaptation of The Last of Us, starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsay, who’s also a Game of Thrones star.
Ramsey plays the young survivor Ellie whose blood could be the cure to the said pandemic, while Pascal is the hardened survivor Joel tasked with smuggling Ellie across the US.

Game of Thrones stars have spread their wings and made their mark in the filming industry with their amazing talent. We can find them regularly appearing on other popular shows and films, providing the fans with a nostalgic and warm feeling from their time on Game of Thrones. Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternals. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Clarke has landed another important role recently, in the biopic McCarthy.
The film will take a look at demagogic US senator Joseph McCarthy, who drove the anti-communist doctrine known as McCarthyism, in the US in the 1950s. It will also explore what drove the lawyer and decorated former US Marine down a path that led to show-trials and venomous populism.
Clarke will take on the role of McCarthy’s politically ambitious wife Jean Kerr opposite Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon, who plays the titular role.
“The saga of Joe McCarthy is timeless and the drama behind his rise to power, sobering,” producer Zach Studin said (via Deadline). “It is a powerful reminder to us all that truth and facts are the lifeblood of a free and open society.”

Game of Thrones stars have spread their wings and have made their mark in the film-making industry with their amazing talent. We can find them regularly appearing on other popular shows and films, providing the fans with a nostalgic and warm feeling from their time on Game of Thrones. Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternels. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Jacob Anderson has also been stirring up the internet recently with his new roles. A few weeks ago, Anderson made headlines when he joined the cast of Doctor Who in a recurring role. This time, he is in the news for being selected as the lead for AMC’s adaptation of Anne Rice’s Gothic vampire novel Interview With the Vampire.
Anderson, known for playing the Unsullied leader Grey Worm on Game of Thrones, will reunite with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor in Interview With the Vampire. The show is expected to air on AMC in 2022. Anderson will play Louis, a young man who is seduced into the world of the undead by the amoral vampire Lestat, played by Sam Reid. Rolin Jones will serve as creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Interview With the Vampire.
Interview With Vampire was previously adapted as a 1994 feature film with Brad Pitt as Louis and Tom Cruise as Lestat. Hopefully, this upcoming show will be just as good and fans will get to watch another amazing gothic romance drama. Tell us what you think about the casting in the comments below!
