Naughty Dog and Sony surprised everyone today with the release of new The Last of Us: Part II cinematic trailer at Paris Games Week 2017. I am very sure that no one of us saw this coming from them. By now you all know that the new trailer for The Last of Us: Part II showed four new characters (no – there was no Ellie or Joel or any other returning character showcased in the trailer). Naughty Dog via Twitter has just revealed the names of these new characters in The Last of Us: Part II and which voice actors are behind these new characters.

Yara - The Last of Us: Part II

One of the characters that you saw in the trailer is YARA and the voice actor behind her is Victoria Grace. The second trailer revealed by Naughty Dog is Lev and the voice actor behind him is Ian Alexander, the man who is known for his role as Buck Vu in The OA TV series.

The third character revealed by Naughty Dog is Emily and the voice actor behind her is Emily Swallow. Last but not the least – the fourth character that we saw is voiced by Laura Bailey – Naughty Dog did reveal the in-game name for her, but smartly CENSORED it. What must be the reason behind it? What I have heard from the rumor mills is that Laura Bailey is playing the role of the mother of Ellie. Nothing is officially confirmed yet, but by censoring her in-game name Naughty Dog confirmed to us that Laura Bailey is playing a very important role in The Last of Us: Part II.
