Today we might have gotten an interesting hint on another member of the cast of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Creative Director Neil Druckmann himself retweeted a tweet by Merle Dandridge, who played Marlene in The Last of Us.
Look, Valve, all I’m saying is you give us the Half Life license and we’ll take care of the rest. 😉 https://t.co/XkrWjtfXyJ

Cheeky reference to Valve aside, and “Half Life 3 confirmed!” jokes notwithstanding, this isn’t the first time Druckmann tweets about Dandridge in the past few days.

In today’s tweet, she’s obviously doing performance capture, and Druckmann’s retweet seems to indicate that they’re working together. Considering that Naughty Dog is currently doing the performance capture for Uncharted 4: a Thief’s End, it’s pretty easy to do the math.
Who could Dandridge be playing? She definitely seems to be fitting the role of one of the two main villains of Uncharted 4: Nadine Ross, about which we know very little so far. You can see her in the concept art below, and on the cover of the steelbook for the game.
She actually looks a bit like Marlene, doesn’t she?
Of course, we should take this all with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made, but for now, this is all we have.
