She is only a little bit younger than series star Bella Ramsey, both playing 2 young survivors of the worst plague to happen to the world.

Riley, played by Storm Reid, formed a deeper connection than either of them expected. This bond will have ripple effects on how Ellie sees Joel, another person for whom she cares, and as long as he lives without turning, she’ll do anything to stop anybody else she cares about from dying.
