THE LAST OF US Casts Young Mazino as Jesse in Season 2 Filming in British Columbia

My friend’s problems are my problems — Jesse.

HBO’s smash hit The Last of Us casts Beef breakout Young Mazino as Jesse, joining Pedro Pascal’s Joel, Bella Ramsey’s Ellie and Kaitlyn Dever’s Abby in season 2 of the video game adaption.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed by a fungal pandemic. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle teen 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.

Season one left us with Joel and Ellie heading back to Jackson, Wyoming, a thriving community of survivors from the fungal pandemic.

Official character description: Jesse is a pillar of his community [in Jackson], who puts everyone else’s needs before his own, sometimes at terrible cost.

Young is one of those rare actors who is immediately undeniable the moment you see him. We’re so lucky to have him, and we can’t wait for the audience to see Young shine in our show. — Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann in a joint statement.
