We’re alone one episode deep in HBO’s live-action adaptation of The last of us and fans think they’ve discovered the actor who will play Abby.

In a recent tweet The latest news from usa community-run one TLOU fan account, uploaded a screenshot of the game’s creator, Neil Druckmann, who follows actor Shannon Berry on Instagram. Druckmann, of course, follows The wilderness actor just might be his way of pulling past a Hideo Kojima showing interest in actors who star in shows similar to his own works.

But give the internet an inch and they’ll take a mile, because Twitter is buzzing about how perfect Berry’s casting for Abby would be, especially considering how closely her face resembles the former Firefly and surprise co-star of The Last of Us Part II. That probably won’t help either Berry’s followed Druckmann back on Instabut that’s show business baby!

“Hey, she’s 22. Bella Ramsey is 19. Their age difference is perfect for Ellie and Abby,” wrote one Twitter user.

‘God, I hope it happens. She’s the perfect Abby,’ wrote another.

“Whoever gets the part I really hope they don’t get the abuse that Laura Bailey did!! Neither Laura nor anyone who gets the role for the series deserves it!” another noted.

“Becoming a Shannon Berry Abby Anderson Trutherer Right Now,” wrote one Twitter userwho took it a step further by making a Kpop-style fancam video of the actor after someone suggested that Florence Pugh would make a good Abby.

Should Abby come in TLOU (prestige TV edition), “Abby Anderson observers” think the show should save her performance for the final episode of the season, creating a nice through line between the original game’s ending and the sequel.

The worst (and not so bad) video game movies

Ever since The last of us premiering on the streamer, fans and critics alike have heralded the HBO show as the one to finally break the video game adaptation’s terrible curse. While I think the show knocked it out of the park with its 80-minute pilot episode, I can’t help but notice the tendency of the pop culture zeitgeist to haphazardly regurgitate that accolade whenever a new video game adaptation is released. comes out that isn’t dog water. .

The ’95 Mortal Kombat movie (which is good, not @ me), Paramount Pictures’ Sonic movies and Netflix Castlevania, League of Legendsand Cyberpunk 2077 shows have all deservedly received the same praise for their overall quality and respect for source material. But just like Disney always new “first LGBTQ characters“Do gamers always write the latest video game adaptation heat as finally “breaking the curse” despite going through this whole song and dance about five times in the last two years. I suppose recency bias is a bitch.

Either way, we’ll have to wait and see if the internet’s admittedly parasocial stalking of Druckmann’s Insta results in Berry’s casting as Abby. But for now, let’s just appreciate how edgy Abby is.
