The Last of Us has to cast the right person to play Abby Anderson and these six performers could be the ones to do it.
The Last of Us‘ first season on HBO hasn’t concluded. When it does, there will be a divide between fans – this is something Bella Ramsey confirmed. Some viewers are going to hate what happened, others will understand, and then there will be people in the middle who get both sides. No matter how you feel, the ending will drastically affect the next season of The Last of Us. That brings us to Abby Anderson. A woman who’ll have a personal stake in the show’s future.
Without spoiling the ending, the events of The Last of Us will break Abby’s heart. That is going to lead her down a path for revenge that will possibly get a lot of people killed. Some of them will be close to her while others are collateral damage. It will be a deep story that, if it’s like the video game, may turn some people off from The Last of Us. However, if you stick with it, you’ll see that Abby is a top tier character.
When it comes to Abby, acting will be a big part of the casting, but there’s another quality that goes into casting her. Whoever plays her has to look formidable. They don’t have to be built exactly like her, but they have to look the part physically. It may not seem important, but it’ll make sense once season 2 begins.
Here are some performers that are possible casting choices and why they could be great at playing Abby.
