The Last Of Us 2 Adds Westworld Actor

Shannon Woodward joins the Last of Us franchise.


The Last of Us: Part II has multiple connections to Westworld. The game's story is being co-written by Westworld writer Halley Gross, and now we've learned that an actress from the show is in the game.

Shannon Woodward, who plays Elsie in Westworld, has a role in The Last of Us: Part II, she announced on Twitter with a nice picture of herself and game director Neil Druckmann (via IGN).

All we know for now is that Woodward is in the game; there is nothing to go on yet regarding the character she's playing and any connections to the first game.

In other The Last of Us news, the first game's director, Bruce Straley, is not returning to direct the sequel. The game, which is coming to PlayStation 4 but doesn't have a release date, lets you play as Ellie. The first game had you playing as Joel.
