The Last of Us star Gabriel Luna opened up on his preparations for season 2 before he even started recording the Tommy role in the series.
HBO delayed the decision to renew the show after till the ratings shot up after the second episode, but Luna was convinced of the apocalyptic drama's future as he played both of the acclaimed video games.
During an interview with EW, Luna explained, "When I played the games, I experienced the story as one big chunk, one unified story. So I was just as much prepping for Part II as I was for the work that was immediately on hand," adding, "I'm fully... Yeah, I'm ready."
The actor also pitched some things to showrunners Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann about his role as Tommy in the upcoming season 2.
"I've pitched a few ideas to Craig and Neil about what we could explore, considering we can bubble out to certain pockets of the story that we don't get to experience in the game," he added.
"So we'll see what they have in store, but I was ready before we shot the first frame of [season 1] for Part II. I'm excited to get into that work."
