Murray Bartlett: Who Is He From The Last of Us?

Murray Bartlett is an Australian actor who went from starring in Australian soap operas to leading-tier American television programs like The Last of Us.

Over the years, he has received many awards, including for his role as Armond in The White Lotus. He has also appeared in several critically and commercially successful films and television series.

Murray Bartlett is joined in The Last of Us by another critically acclaimed actor, Anna Torv, who is playing another iconic video game character.

Who Is Frank in The Last of Us?

Bill is a smuggler and Frank is Bill's partner in The Last of Us. They met almost twenty years before the game's start and teamed up to protect the small town of Lincoln, Massachusetts.

Together, they fortified the city and became extraordinarily close to one another, with a romantic bond between the two being very strong.

Frank meets Joel, the protagonist of The Last of Us, played by another famous and well-known actor during this time.

Frank isn't played by anyone in the 2013 Video Game The Last of Us. He is first mentioned by Bill and in notes, but is later discovered dead in his house by Joel, Ellie, and Bill.

What Happens to Frank in The Last of Us?

Frank becomes dissatisfied with their way of life after twenty years of living with Bill. As a result, he abandons Bill with the intention of being smuggled into the QZ.

He tries to take a car battery but gets bitten by Infected and is forced to flee, fearing for his life.

Frank isn't the only character to die this way, as his death is akin to another grizzly fate that happens in the Last of Us TV show.
