Warning: Spoilers for The last of us Consequences.
Episode five of The last of us continued the show’s trend of raising the bar for television with each episode. From Melanie Lynskey’s chilling role as antagonist Kathleen and introducing Bloaters to the canon of HBO Max to the episode’s unfathomably devastating climax, Endure and Survive was about as dizzying as the show has gotten yet.
Alongside Joel and Ellie, Henry, a reluctant ally of the protagonists and public enemy number one of Kansas City, starred in this episode. We find out that Henry painted a giant target on his back after killing the leader of Kansas City’s revolutionary movement, but he went into hiding with his little brother Sam after the rebels toppled FEDRA.
But where have we seen the talent behind Henry before?
Who is Lamar Johnson?
After being previously treated by Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy, 13 reasons why) in the video game, the live-action Henry is played by a Canadian actor and dancer Lamar Johnson.

Johnson also starred in the Bryan Cranston crime drama. Your Honor. Johnson starred as Kofi, a young man who is forced by a New Orleans crime family member to falsely take the blame for the death of the family boss’ son.
In the film, Johnson portrayed the pyrokinetic mutant Match in the Fox’s X Men: Dark Phoenix. More recently, he had a starring role in 2022 Brother, a Canadian drama based on the award-winning novel of the same name by David Chariandy.
