Baker also acknowledged and supported Bella Ramsey’s casting as Ellie, writing, “I got you, baby girl. Congrats @bellaramsey. Can’t wait to see you kick ass and throw bricks.”

It wasn’t just Baker that gave his thumbs up to Pascal and Ramsey joining The Last Of Us. Naughty Dog co-president and The Last Of Us writer Neil Druckman also Tweeted out his approval late last night, saying he was “thrilled” and “stoked” to have the two onboard.

We still don’t have a date for when The Last Of Us will drop on HBO and its streaming platform HBO Max, but we do know that it’ll be written by Druckmann and produced by Craig Mazin of Chernobyl fame. Mazin gained plenty of fame for his nuclear disaster miniseries, including Golden Globes, BAFTA, and Peabody awards, not to mention a few Primetime Emmys.
