Plus, Young Mazino cast as Jesse.
Isabela Merced alongside Dina, the character from The Last of Us.

Following the reveal that Kaitlyn Dever will play Abby in the second season of HBO's The Last of Us, comes word of two additional hires.

First we have Young Mazino, an actor best known for his role in the TV mini series, Beef. Mazino will play Jesse in the second season of The Last of Us. Mazino's casting was announced the other day, but we somehow missed the announcement.

Joining Dever and Mazino will be Isabela Merced in the role of Dina. Merced is best known for her roles in Transformers: The Last Knight, Instant Family, and as Dora in Dora and the Lost City of Gold. She is also a singer and songwriter and will be Hawkgirl in the upcoming film, Superman: Legacy.

Dina is Ellie's love interest throughout The Last of Us Part 2, and also Jesse's ex. It's probably a safe assumption to say a similar plot will play out in the television show's second season.

Naughty Dog's Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann had a few words to say about Dina and the selection of Merced for the role.

Dina is warm, brilliant, wild, funny, moral, dangerous and instantly lovable. 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.
