The Last of Us Voice Actor Interested in Returning for Sequel
Ashley Johnson, who voices Ellie, expresses interest.
We’ve seen Naughty Dog drop hints about a sequel to The Last of Us over the past few years. In fact, there was even a teasing poster in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for The Last of Us: American Daughters. No new information has been revealed on whether it’s happening but voice actor Ashley Johnson, who voiced Ellie in the original, is keen on returning.
Speaking to GameSpot, she stated that, “I feel like if they were to pursue it again, if they were to have another story for Ellie or Joel or that whole world, I would totally jump on board. But you know there’s also a part of me that thinks, ‘Man, the story could stand alone,’ and sometimes we should just leave it alone. If they were to make another one, though, I would love to be a part of it.”
As for The Last of Us film, Johnson said she doesn’t know how far production has come or if any progress has been made. However, she’s still interested in seeing it happen. As for appearing in it? She noted, “Yeah, I’d be a clicker.” Probably in jest. Probably.
