Isabela Merced The Last of Us Part 2

Isabela Merced Joins The Last of Us Season 2 As Dina

Joining Kaitlyn Dever as Abby and Young Mazino as Jesse in The Last of Us season 2 is Isabela Merced as Dina.

“Dina is warm, brilliant, wild, funny, moral, dangerous and instantly lovable,” said co-creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. “You can search forever for an actor who effortlessly embodies all of those things, or you can find Isabela Merced right away. We couldn’t be prouder to have her join our family.”

Merced joins a star-studded cast that includes Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie. The first season was an adaptation of the first game, and the second season will serve as a partial adaptation of The Last of Us Part 2, which will be spread across multiple seasons on HBO.

Last week, The Last of Us season 1 took home eight Emmy awards, including Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series and Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Season or Movie.

Production on The Last of Us is expected to begin in the spring for a return to HBO in 2025.
