The Mandalorian star is '110% Abby' in The Last Of Us, fans agree

The Mandalorian star is '110% Abby' in The Last Of Us, fans agree

Fans think that The Mandalorian's Katy O'Brian would be a great fit for Abby Anderson in season two of The Last of Us.

Welcome back to The Last of Us fanbase’s main discussion which will continue to dominate the internet until we get a proper answer for it. Who’s going to play Abby in season two?

Abby Anderson is a controversial character to say the least, and fans of the games (and anyone who was on the internet in 2020) will know exactly why. Not everyone was entirely supportive of her golfing hobby, and many didn’t like the fact that you spend so much time playing as her in The Last of Us Part II. Let’s be real though - like her or loathe her, she had some incredible gameplay segments. Seattle day three, anyone?

Take a look at this comparison of Ellie in the TV show and game below.

Given how much everyone has praised The Last of Us’ casting choices in season one, there’s some serious pressure for the showrunners to pick a good actress for Abby. Fans on Reddit think that they’ve already picked out the perfect person - Katy O’Brian, who’s best known for her roles as Jentorra in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Elia Kane in The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian’s Katy O’Brian. I don’t care how old. She’s 110% Abby,” Reddit user GUNNER_BASS wrote, showing side-by-side images of the actress and Abby.

Others are totally on board: “Holy sh*t! I can totally see it! Great eye!” one fan replied. “I so f***ing agree! I've been feeling that way as I've been watching this season,” another commented. “YES YES YES. Absolutely. I love this,” agreed another.

This isn’t the first time that fans have highlighted O’Brian as a potential casting choice, but the actress herself previously revealed that it’s almost certainly not going to happen. Last month, she tweeted: “Full disclosure: the second TLoU came out, I told my team to keep an [eye] on it. When they announced the show, I asked a few […] to see if I could get an audition. Nada. I appreciate the support but it’s not in the cards.”
