“The Last of Us” fans are talking about a new stand-out actor in the season finale — a giraffe from the Calgary Zoo might be shopping for an agent after making its acting debut!
TMZ has learned the giraffe used in the episode is a 13-year-old bull Masai giraffe who normally resides in the Canadian zoo, where goes by “Nabo” … and his big moment on camera came in a pivotal scene.
Diehard fans of the post-apocalyptic series will recognize the scene as a recreation from the original video game — Joel played, by Pedro Pascal, and Ellie, played by Bella Ramsey, stumble upon the beautiful creature, and it becomes a moment of pure bliss.
We’re told Nabo is one of many giraffes at the Calgary Zoo, but he is the tallest resident to roam the establishment … so, maybe that’s why he got the nod.
He seemed to be a star in the making because his birth was well-documented and celebrated back in 2015 at the zoo.
