Who Is Graham Greene’s Marlon? – Graham Greene debuted as Marlon in Episode 6 of The Last of Us, HBO’s flagship series.
In the most recent edition, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) encounter new characters, including Marlon, on their journey to cure the deadly fungal illness. Despite his hostile disposition, Joel and Ellie learned a great deal from the cantankerous man.
Who Plays the role of Marlon in The Last of Us?
Graham Greene, a 71-year-old Canadian actor, portrays Marlon in The Last of Us. Greene was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Kicking Bird in Dances with Wolves (1990). Greene has portrayed numerous characters, including Arlen Bitterbuck in The Green Mile (1999) and Rafe McCawley in Defiance (2013-2015).
Marlon debuted in “Kin,” where a home invasion introduced him to protagonists Joel and Ellie. Like Melanie Lynskey’s Kathleen, Marlon doesn’t have a virtual analogue. Like Bill and Frank, he is a survivor who, with his wife Florence (Elaine Miles), prefers to shun the outside world and remain in their cabin. Marlon and Joel had a rocky start but finally reconciled after Joel disclosed his true motive: seeking down his brother, Tommy (Gabriel Luna). Florence served soup to the unwelcome guests while admiring Ellie’s sense of humour.
It was appropriate that Marlon’s debut episode was directed by Jasmila Žbanić. Despite Marlon’s brief screen time, the critically acclaimed Bosnian director created a multifaceted figure. She is most known for her tragic depictions of the human cost of war. Marlon made it quite clear that, unlike Joel’s brother, he does not support the cause of the Fireflies, the rebel group fighting against the military regime, nor does he care for the Jackson neighbourhood’s residents. Marlon denied hiding when Joel accused him, stating that he had lived in the cabin long before the Cordyceps epidemic, much to his wife’s chagrin. Before parting ways, they expressed fear for Joel and Ellie’s safety if they went west.
