Pedro Pascal Dishes On How Closely The Last Of Us Will Honor The Video Game

While speaking to GQ, Pascal revealed that “The Last of Us” is in the most capable hands with Neil Druckmann. When asked how closely the script for the series follows the video game, Pascal replied, “There’s a very, very creative way of honoring what’s important and also preserving what is iconic to the experience of the video game, and also [to include] things that you wouldn’t necessarily expect. And then directions that you would expect it to go, and it might not… they’re doing some really smart things, is all I can say.”

“The Mandalorian” actor related Druckmann’s work on “The Last of Us” to that of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. The duo’s love for “Star Wars” was evident in their work on “The Mandalorian” and its subsequent spinoffs, revitalizing the franchise. Pascal says Druckmann and co-writer Craig Mazin share that same level of love for “The Last of Us” and will strive to make it a series that fans of the games will love. 

The “Game of Thrones” alum revealed his take on Joel wouldn’t be a carbon copy of Baker’s video game performance. Although he lacked the necessary skills to play the game, he watched his nephew play some of it but wanted to maintain a healthy distance to avoid imitation. “I found Joel so impressive — I found the whole of it such a visually impressive experience,” he said, “And then I got worried that I would want to imitate too much, which I think could be right in some circumstances, and then a mistake in others. So I just wanted to create a healthy distance, and for that to be more in the hands of Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann.”
