The HBO series “The Last of Us” has found its Dinah. In the second season, this role will be played by Isabela Merced. “Dina is warm, brilliant, energetic, funny, moral, dangerous and moody,” said creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. “You could spend ages looking for an actress who can effortlessly demonstrate all these qualities, or you could find Isabela Merced right now.” We are very proud to have her join our “family.”

To this day, the actress became the third announced member of the cast of the new season, following Kaitlyn Dever (“Ticket to Heaven”) and Young Masino (“Bear”). HBO is developing a series based on the video game of the same name. It positions Dina as “a freedom-loving soul whose devotion to Ellie will be tested by the cruelty of the world they inhabit.” Well, the plot follows Joe (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) as they try to overcome an apocalypse-ravaged area and reach their destination. The series became a huge hit both in terms of viewers and critics.
