Telltale's Laura Perusco revealed the news on Twitter earlier today. Another Telltale employee, communications lead Job Stauffer, shed some more light on Johnson's role in the series.

"Without giving anything away, just know that she plays a *very* core character," he wrote. "Episode 3 is bananas!"

Before her role as Ellie in The Last of Us, Johnson appeared in the TV show Growing Pains and the Mel Gibson movie What Women Want. Her other video game credits include various Ben 10 games and Infamous: First Light.

Johnson isn't the only celebrity featured in Tales from the Borderlands. Seinfeld and Family Guy actor Patrick Warburton and comedian Chris Hardwick also play major roles. In addition, video game voice acting veterans Nolan North, Troy Baker, and Laura Bailey have parts in the series.

The first two Tales from the Borderlands episodes, Zer0 Sum and Atlas Mugged, were released in November 2014 and March 2015, respectively. Telltale has not yet announced a release date for the third.
