Who Is Sarah in The Last of Us & How Old Is She?

Sarah is the daughter of Joel Miller, the main male protagonist of The Last of Us.

Joel’s daughter is a 12-year-old girl, born sometime around 1991. This differs from the video game where she is born in late 2000 to early 2001.

The identity of the girl’s mother is both unknown in the game as well as the show. Sarah is an athletic 12-year-old with first-place ribbons hanging on the walls of her room in the opening scene.

In the video game, the reveal of Sarah’s athleticism comes through a mention of her playing soccer for a team named “Defenders”.
