Who plays Sarah in The Last of Us?

Sarah is portrayed by Nico Parker, who has some very strong resemblance to stars of other HBO hit series. Parker is the daughter of Thandiwe Newton (Westworld) and Ol Parker (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Parker has several credits to her name in her early career, with the 18 year-old starring in Tim Burton’s Dumbo, as well as the Hugh Jackman-led sci-fi noir Reminiscence.

Parker also played a role in British drama-mystery The Third Man, in which coincendentally she played a character called Ellie. Parker is only credited as a guest star for The Last of Us series, with her appearing just in flashbacks over the nine-episode run of the first season.

The Last of Us is available to stream on HBO Max.
