Joel and Ellie’s Actors Reflect on Recording The Last of Us
Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson reflect on the three years spent recording the dialogue and motion capture footage for Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us.
Sony held an exclusive interview with Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker as the two veteran voice actors reflect on the years spent together recording Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. You might recognize Baker as the voices of Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite, Delsin in Infamous: Second Son, Snow in Final Fantasy XIII, Jake in Resident Evil 6, Greed in 'Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood', and the Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins. Johnson is known for playing Gretchen in 'Recess', Gwen Tennyson in each of the 'Ben 10' series, Terra in 'Teen Titans' and she was also the waitress saved by Captain America in 'The Avengers'.
Baker was mentioning a lot of his feelings towards Johnson, saying that there was a certain chemistry between them, but Johnson didn't even acknowledged that and changed topics to where the actors all started singing while filming the hospital standoff at the end of the game. Nevertheless, it's great watching Johnson and Baker interact with one another in person, and we can't wait for the inevitable sequel.
The Last of Us Remastered launches on July 29 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
The Last of Us' plot revolved around a terrible virus, but did it make 5x5's Best Video Game Viruses?
