Could Melanie Lynskey’s next role be… Drew Barrymore?

The “Last of Us” star appeared Thursday on “The Tonight Show,” where she stunned host Jimmy Fallon with her spot-on impression of her former “Ever After” costar.

The New Zealand-born actor was relating the sweet reaction Barrymore had when Lynskey gave her a gift while they were working on the 1990s period drama. But instead of simply describing what happened, she launched into a full-blown impression of Barrymore’s distinctive voice and mannerisms.

Lynskey downplayed her mimetic abilities, quickly adding, “It wasn’t a very good impression.”

But Fallon was already out of his seat, exclaiming, “That was an unbelievable impression! That is exactly Drew, by the way!”
