I would like my face to be a part of one of the greatest games of the year or perhaps decade.
But it's not actually her face, she didn't give it any blessing, and she has her own videogame coming out.
Looks similar anyways.
Exactly. It's pretty much Ellen Page, but without her name attached to it.
Heck, I remember reading an article last year, just before E3, where there were reports that Quantic Dream had contacted ND and requested they tone back how much Ellie looked like Ellen, as Quantic was coming out with their own game starring the real Ellen Page
On a side-note, I am getting "excited" for Beyond Two Souls, it looks pretty good. I heard from an IGN e3 review the controls were kind of wonky but I'm hoping that there will be no "wonkiness" when the game comes out.
I don't think Ellie looks like Ellen. I think she and Ashley Johnson definitely sound the same though, which is where people are picking up the comparison in my opinion.
who and who? Ashley looks nothing like Ellie.
Younger images of Ashley do look like Ellie , even the Artbook of the Last of Us proves that the many image incarnations had no bearing or even prove that Ellen Page was considered to be used as a base model.
And for the ones that have said it was deliberate on Naughty dogs part, For hell sake my daughter 7 years ago looks like Ellie and so do allot of young maturing teenage girls.
It doesn't prove wrong doing in anyway shape or form.
To close, read the original post by Ellen Page and you will see that this as well as the original question has been taken out of context completely.
But for allot of people that love controversy it's a nice way of filling up an evening. :-)
...Wanted to add that regardless of some of the confusion that we have read on the Internet, I think we all understand similarities in the representation of another are in the eye of the beholder, But the Last Of Us is one hell of a great Game!!
