A fan of the game has used the deepfake technique to add to the cast of the HBO series in the first game of the series.
Since it was officially announced that Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey were going to play Joel and ellie respectively in The Last of Us series, we’ve seen hundreds of fan-made imaginations about what the cast will look like in the post-apocalyptic game of Naughty dog. But what we show you next is probably the most realistic thing we’ve seen to date.
Until we see the first images of the television production, what is going to bring us closer to that moment is this construction carried out using the increasingly popular technology deepfake. YouTube user named Stryder HD is the one who has taken the faces of the actors and has put them in the first installment of the saga, making us see Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the video game. You can see it below.
The video was created with the popular deepfake techniqueTo stay with your mouth open, right? There are several videos of this type on the net, but none with a result as optimal and realistic as this one. It can certainly serve as an aperitif until the series premieres; although in this case virtually. Looking at it like this, it already gives the feeling that the cast chosen is a success and that Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) will form a great team like Joel and Ellie.
It’s not the only content we’ve seen related to actors. We recently brought you a hyper-realistic portrait of Pedro Pascal as Joel. And we’ve also been able to see Bella Ramsey playing guitar like Ellie does in games. There is currently no release date for The Last of Us on HBO, but Neil Druckmann, director of the series, has promised that they are working on several projects, although he asks for patience.
