Pedro Pascal was cast for the role of Joel along with Bella Ramsey bringing Ellie to life in HBO’s tv series adaptation of the critically acclaimed video game The Last of Us. While the series ‌isn’t being released on HBO until 2023, the series filming has ended, which allowed Pascal to share a heartwarming message with his co-star, Bella Ramsey.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Bella Ramsey commented that Pedro wrote a little card to her as the production wrapped up, saying, “How interesting that something so huge and life-changing should happen so early in your life and so late in mine.”

The full quote reads:

I can’t wait for “The Last of Us.” Did you play the game at all before signing on? 

I was actually encouraged not to. After my first audition, they asked me, “Have you played it?” And I said “nope,” and they said, “Keep it that way.” (Laughs.) I did watch some of the gameplay on YouTube just to get a sense of it. But I’m so excited for it to come out – it was such a big part of my life. I shot for a whole year, which is quite a long time when you’ve only lived for 19 years. Pedro wrote a little card to me at the end, saying, “How interesting that something so huge and life-changing should happen so early in your life and so late in mine.” I thought it was a really sweet observation and I just had the best time.
