Westworld Actress Joins the Last of Us Part 2 Cast

Shannon Woodward from the hit HBO show, Westworld, has joined the highly anticipated PS4 exclusive – The Last of Us Part 2.

You know Woodward as Elsie from the show; She diagnoses behavior problems in Westworld’s hosts, as well as programming them prior to entry into the park. Woodward took to Twitter to announce the exciting news, check it out down below:

I am embarrassingly over-excited here because I’m peaking. @Neil_Druckmann is letting me act in The Last Of Us:Part II . 

Last year, Naughty Dog announced that the sequel to the critically acclaimed title will indeed be coming. We don’t know much about the title, but we do know that the game will take players in a new direction as the playable character is set to be Ellie. Here’s what Neil Drukmann had to say about the upcoming title last year:

I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, that wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.

The Last of Us Part 2 is still ways off, but it’s nice to see the direction the games headed.
