“Confirmed. BAFTAwinning actress [Ashley Johnson] has joined the cast of Tales from the Borderlands!” tweeted Perusco. “Spoiler Alert: She’s amazing. Show, stolen!”
In a follow-up tweet, PR director Stauffer added that “without giving anything away, just know that she plays a *very* core character. Ep 3 is bananas!”
We’ve been loving the series so far, and in our review said that “its consistently funny writing and duo of unreliable narrator protagonists set the stage for a great overarching story, and it feels very much like it belongs in theBorderlandsfranchise. If the rest of the season maintains this level of quality,Tales from the Borderlandswill be up there in history with the other great recent Telltale adventures.”
