HBO is one of the leading networks in the world of television. The network has already given us some of the finest shows of all time in the form of Game of Thrones and Chernobyl. We are now on our way to witnessing possibly one of the best cinematic masterpieces of this year, as the TV adaptation of one of the most beloved video games of all times, The Last of Us, is finally here. Game of Thrones alums Pedro Pascal and Bella Ransey are playing the leads in the series, and we can’t be more excited about it.

However, there was some uproar in response to their casting from a part of the fanbase, to which Pascal replied in a recent interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, “Sorry, you can’t make everybody happy.”

The show’s producer Neil Druckmann added, “Sometimes, I think fans can be misguided. They’re hanging onto superficial things and think that if those things change, somehow we’ve got it wrong. But I would like to ask them: When you first played the game and [you met] Sarah, was it her relationship to Joel [that affected you] or that she had blonde hair? What’s important versus what’s not? To me, it was more important to capture the essence of those characters when we cast them.”
