Watch The Last of Us Joel & Ellie Actors Recall Working on the Game

Sony releases new video giving us a glimpse into the world of the actors who played the game's main characters.


Just a day ahead of The Last of Us Remastered's release tomorrow on PlayStation 4, Sony today launched a new video wherein actors Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie) interview each other about the acclaimed post-apocalyptic action game.

The video features some never-before-heard stories about The Last of Us, including how Baker thought there was no chance Naughty Dog would think he was right for the role of Joel. There is also an interesting segment where Baker recalls encountering Johnson for the first time and feeling an instant connection, as well as a desire to "take care" of her. Not because Johnson needed to be taken care of, Baker, says, but because he wanted to.

The full video is worth a look if you have the time. The Last of Us Remastered launches tomorrow, July 29. For more, be sure to check out GameSpot's review of the game, which is a high-definition update of the 2013 PlayStation 3 game.
