The Last of Us Voice Actors


Brought to you by Naughty Dog, the renowned developer behind games series such as Crash Bandicoot and Uncharted, The Last of Us is nothing short of a masterpiece. Released in 2013, it sold over 20 million units worldwide for PS3 and PS4 and remains one of the most popular games to this day.

The Last of Us places the player in the post-apocalyptic U.S., ravaged by the Cordyceps virus that turns humans into hostile, cannibalistic creatures. The player takes on the role of Joel, a Texan smuggler who has lived in this new world for over 20 years, doing whatever it takes to survive the infection.

During one of his illegal smuggling missions, Joel is tasked with delivering a teenage girl Ellie to the Fireflies. Being immune to the infection, Ellie might be the key to ending the nightmare that the world has become.
