That is partly thanks to the incredibly effective The Last of Us Part 1 actors, who perform their roles tremendously. Here is the entire cast for the 2013 game rolling on to 2022 for the remake.

First and foremost, let's discuss the two actors behind the main protagonists: Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson. Baker plays Joel, a smuggler who is tasked with sending Ellie (Johnson) from one side of the country to the other for the Fireflies. Unfortunately, they don't know what lies ahead on their dangerous adventure through a post-apocalyptic version of the United States.

Troy Baker is known for his roles as Booker DeWitt in BioShock InfiniteSam Drake in the Uncharted series, and Jonesy in the massively popular battle royale Fortnite. Epic Games features his character a lot during promotional story content between seasons. 


Meanwhile, Ashley Johnson has starred in the mega popular D&D show Critical Role, Ben 10 as the protagonist's sister Gwen, and Tulip Olsen in Infinity Train. They've both been successful in their own right since their performances in The Last of Us. In fact, they both will star as undisclosed characters in The Last of Us HBO series.
