A new actor has joined the cast of The Last of Us Part II: Shannon Woodward, probably best known for playing Elsie Hughes on HBO’s Westworld.
“I am embarrassingly over-excited here because I’m peaking,” Woodward wrote, before sharing a picture of herself and the game’s creative director, Neil Druckmann, on Twitter.

Strangely, this isn’t the only tie The Last of Us Part II has to Westworld. Writer Halley Gross, who worked on two episodes of the HBO show, is currently co-writing the game alongside Druckmann.
So far, Woodward’s role in the game hasn’t been revealed, but in the picture she’s geared up in a motion capture suit.
The Last of Us Part II was unveiled at PlayStation Experience 2016. We don’t have any word of a release window yet.
