What is the Story of Kathleen in The Last of Us?

Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann have come together to create an American post-apocalyptic drama television show, "The Last of Us," exclusively for HBO.

This series is based on the 2013 video game developed by Naughty Dog. The Last of Us made its debut on 15th January 2023

Melanie Lynskey, star of Yellowjackets is playing the role of Kathleen in HBO show. Kathleen full name is Kathleen Coghlan.

Kathleen Coghlan is the trailblazing leader of a revolutionary movement in Kansas City. She is an innovative character crafted by Mazin, representing a group of hunters who feature in the game.

Mazin likened Kathleen to Madame Defarge from Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities (1859), creating an image of a revolutionary who has had to endure hardships and yet still manages to evoke empathy from the audience.

Kathleen was unconvinced at first, until Mazin elaborated on the personality of the character he had in mind-someone who had been forced to step into the role of her deceased brother - whom he referred to as "pretty much a Jesus figure".
