You are seeing something am not seeing brother, but indeed casting could've been worse

There are however some misses, Kathleen comes to mind most prominently, and Ellie for me personally

Meanwhile I am here watching TWD which is a good example of proper casting. Great characters can really carry even a mid show

Ellie a miss? I thought that girl portraying her was A tier.

I'm with Mystats on this one. I wasn't particularly impressed by her acting ability. You two must have some type of neurodivergent telepathy that we don't understand hmm

I definitely agree that The Walking Dead had an excellent cast. Great shows usually do.

We have what now.

Sounds like one of these new wave woke bullshits and I absolutely refuse to google that shit out of principle.

For me Bella is a bad Ellie. It could be partly down to the script which I have heard diverges in some aspects from the game. But I am of the opinion that they could've done so much better finding someone else. It feels like a different take on Ellie compared to the show whereas Joel feels exactly the same.

And we're talking about young Ellie, it could get worse further down the line as the character grows up. Relationship between her and Joel also doesnt feel as organic as in the games

Secondary characters get a pass, but she is front and center of the show, so it stings. As for her overall ability as an actress I am not convinced either, and I have seen her in other things than this show and game of thrones. It's a shame really because this show had potential to be one of top 5-10 ever.

Oh, well that settles.

I never played the game so I had no expectations as in how she should be.

I still think she was great though and think the show is incredible

In my opinion, even without those expectations, she is just unfit for this role. Then again I thought she was annoying as hell in game of thrones too.

They clearly wanted to separate the show from the games in some aspects and their depiction of Ellie is sadly one of those things. The show being amazing in itself saves it, because Bella definitely isnt capable of carrying it herself

I did read a discussion on the internet where a small group of fans were initially annoyed that the role of Joel was filled by a hispanic actor, suspecting that was an indication that this show would get a more elaborate, woke treatment.

But I think that ultimately, everyone is happy that the role was given to him. They did get the lead role right for the Witcher as well, and I think both shows would’ve been likely to underperform if they had prioritized race over merit for that particular role, which Mystats rightly mentions is the frontfigures/spotlights of their respective shows. And Joel is a Texan in the games as well, he could very well be of hispanic descent.

By now, even the wokest of directors, producers and screenwrighters must have taken note that the games and tv shows that go all the way in injecting politics into their product end up in economic catastrophy. I personally don’t appreciate it when they only go halfway there either, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be carried by other positive qualities or respect towards a brilliant source material.

Right? I be watching twd and here even secondary or tertiary characters are better. Truth be told I only tolerate Bella because the source material is top tier and Pedro is father, period but that may obviously change..

I am still trying to finish TWD so I can watch TOWL.

I am around E15 in the last season but I keep falling asleep, been stuck between E10 and E15 for like a year. I fall asleep within 5 minutes, so I continue tomorrow.

I think they got things mixed up, they were supposed to cast this girl as Ellie, instead she will be Abby Laughing :facepalm:

Abby was the muscle chick, right? I'm not even sure if I ever completed TLOU 2. I know I was approaching the end of it, but then I think I just forgot about the game.

Yep. Many of the fancastings prior to the premiere had Kaitlyn Dever as Ellie

The casting directors must have a decent sense of humor doing a switcheroo like that.

Although it must be noted that she is well above 20 years old at this point, which is probably why she was discarded for the role
