Young Mazino appears to be freezing in Alberta. The Beef star plays Jackson scout Jesse in season 2 of The Last of Us,

Production of the hit HBO series moved from Alberta to British Columbia in season 2,, but the 2nd Unit is back shooting in Alberta this week in wintry conditions.

What is The Last of Us?

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 headed back to Jackson, Wyoming, a walled community of survivors from the fungal pandemic led by Joel’s brother Tommy Miller (Gabriel Luna).

Season 2 production built a massive Jackson set at Britannia Beach on the Sea to Sky Highway. Is this a replacement for Canmore, Alberta as Jackson?
