‘The Last of Us’ Star Pedro Pascal Says This is the Biggest Threat to Joel

HBO’s newest series is one that is making waves with fans of all ages. The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic drama series that is based on the hugely popular video game. Released on HBO Max on January 15, The Last of Us is already receiving rave reviews from viewers—and much of that praise is directed toward series stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, who play survivors Joel and Ellie. While the series is full of action and intrigue, it is the human connections between the characters that are at the heart of The Last of Us — and in a recent interview, Pascal opened up about what he perceives as “the biggest threat to Joel.”

The Last of Us stars Pascal as Joel, a battle-hardened apocalypse survivor who is tasked with smuggling a young teenage girl named Ellie across the quarantine zone and out of the United States. Based on the video game of the same name, The Last of Us gives Joel some more down-to-earth abilities than in the game, making him human and fallible, in spite of his war experiences.
