If you’ve been missing the cast of The Last of Us games, fear not. This week’s episode features the second acting cameo from the original game. And it’s a really good one.
The Last of Us didn’t become one of the most praised video games of its time just because of its stellar story and gameplay. It also features an outstanding cast of voice actors who managed to elevate its already outstanding material. Episode 1 already introduced TV viewers to Merle Dandridge, who reprised her role as leader of the Fireflies, Marlene. Now it’s time to meet Jeffrey Pierce.
Who Does Jeffrey Pierce Play in The Last of Us Show?
Meet Kathleen’s (Melanie Lynskey) righthand man, Perry. A little background on these two: In the series, Kathleen is the leader of a revolutionary movement that overthrew the military in Kansas City, and Perry is her righthand man. Though Perry is deferential to Kathleen throughout “Please Hold My Hand,” it’s clear that he’s able to take liberties with her that others aren’t. He questions her judgement or gives her a questioning look on more than one occasion. In Kansas City, Kathleen’s word is law. But Perry may have some input into this new world order.
Who Does Jeffrey Pierce Play in The Last of Us Game?
We’ve already met Pierce’s video game counterpart in Episode 1. In both games, Pierce voices Tommy, Joel’s brother. The role even earned Pierce a BAFTA nomination. In the series this flaky deserter is portrayed by Gabriel Luna. Before this HBO Sunday night hit, Luna starred in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Terminator: Dark Fate.
