Troy Baker, the original voice actor for Joel Miller in the video game ‘The Last of Us’, has returned to the franchise to play the new character James in the TV adaptation on HBO. Speaking in an interview with Deadline, Baker discussed how he felt about returning to the world of ‘The Last of Us’, and how excited he was to take on the role of James. He also spoke about the importance of giving depth to every character in the show, even those who may have been overlooked in the video game.

Baker revealed that he loves playing villains who are not really villains, as it allows him to make viewers like the character for a moment, only to hate them later on. He added that playing James was an opportunity for him to see the world of ‘The Last of Us’ through a whole new set of eyes. Baker also discussed the nuances of James’ character, explaining that despite being a member of David’s cult, James still has remnants of a moral center, which made him more interesting to play.

Baker also spoke about working with Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie, and how impressed he was with their talent. He noted that he was excited for viewers to see Ramsey’s performance in the show, adding that they were capable of delivering a terrifying performance. Finally, Baker revealed that he was surprised by the show’s resonance with audiences, saying that it was a “miracle” to be part of something successful twice.

Fans of ‘The Last of Us’ can catch the highly anticipated season finale airing on March 12th. The show has already been renewed for a second season, giving fans more of the post-apocalyptic world and beloved characters they have come to love
