Pedro Pascal’s survivor Joel Miller treks across a fungal pandemic-ravaged America protecting Bella Ramsey’s young Ellie,, who represents the last hope of humanity, in HBO’s The Last of Us adapted from the Naughty Dog video game.
The Last of Us filmed in and around Calgary for almost a year from mid-2021 to mid-2022.
The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
