HBO's The Last of Us is filming now, and a fresh set photo has given us our best look yet at The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal as Joel.
Further photos of the set have appeared online over the past few days, highlighting some of the work which has gone into making the area look like The Last of Us' post-apocalypse world. It's pretty impressive.
First off, here's a peek at Pedro Pascal.

Last month, Naughty Dog has released the first official photo showing Joel and Ellie in costume - although only from the back.
Pascal's Game of Thrones co-star Bella Ramsey is playing Ellie, while Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann is co-writing the HBO series and will serve as director on some episodes.
"The Last of Us which commences photography this week is indeed a monster," Canadian arts union president Damian Petti revealed previously. "It has five art directors and employs an army of hundreds of technicians. It has had six months of prep and shoots (in Alberta) for 12 months."
The first season of The Last of Us is expected to have 10 episodes. There's no word yet on when it will be broadcast.
