Ellen Page comments on The Last of Us likeness photo



Ellen Page isn't exactly thrilled that her likeness was used without permission in Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, besides her appearing by name in another Sony production. In fact, it's specifically because she'll be in Beyond: Two Souls that she can't feel flattered about having her face nabbed.

"I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness," she said in a Reddit AMA, "but I am actually acting in a video game called Beyond Two Souls, so it was not appreciated."

I must admit, the likeness is such that it's hard not to think Page was explicitly involved in The Last of Us, and I can certainly see why a professional actress would not be a fan of having her likeness -- which is, after all, tied intrinsically to her job -- used without consultation. If anything, the fact she's left it simply at one comment is pretty cool of her.

Naughty Dog's only sort of response thus far comes from creative director Neil Druckman, who simply highlighted and praised the performance of Ashley Johnson, who portrayed Ellie in the game.

The Last of Us reportedly shambling onto PS4

Free for all: The Last of Us documentary now on YouTube

I felt bad about talking up Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us upon its free release in the US since many of you weren't able to access the documentary. Well, now you can! Naughty Dog and Area 5 have uploaded the movie in its entirety to YouTube. Again, you should watch it -- after you've beaten the game. Great insight into large-scale game development.more

Chances of a Last of Us sequel: '50/50'

I love The Last of Us. I also don't think it needs a sequel. When asked about a sequel in a Reddit AUA, Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann said "right now I'd say it's 50/50." I'm team 50. That is, the 50 that r...more
