No, Brandon Scott, who portrays Henry in the 2013 The Last of Us video game, does not reprise his role for the HBO TV show.

Instead, Henry is played by American actor Lamar Johnson. This is surprising, especially considering that Scott has had a prolific career in television and film.

In fact, Scott doesn’t even cameo in the show, unlike other actors from The Last of Us video game who make appearances as new and familiar characters.
