Anna Torv is known for her roles as Olivia Dunham on the Fox science fiction series 'Fringe' (2008–2013), and Wendy Carr in the Netflix crime thriller series 'Mindhunter.' In the game and the HBO series, Theresa "Tess" Servopoulos is a supporting character in 'The Last of Us.' A hardened survivor, she was the long-term smuggling partner of Joel Miller. The pair made their living as smugglers in Boston, where they traded with survivors outside of the city. She had a "dog-eat-dog" philosophy, similar to Joel and Ellie.
