Lucas' voice actor sounds very familiar


Recommended Posts

if i recall he sounds exactly the same as the dude in Risen, either that game or Gothic 3. dont know his name though.

 

also i think one of the guys that did 'loads' of voice acting in New Vegas is in there aswell. (i think hes called liam o'brien - his voice is so distinctive it makes me wish he wasnt used as much)

It's Crispin Freeman.

*Google*

 

...he voiced Prince Turnip in Eng. dub of Howl's Moving Castle? >_< Tons of stuff he's done, most of which I haven't seen/played but from his demos on his website, he has a very versatile voice. Very cool.

Crispin is a great guy to work with. Also very knowledgeable about RPGs, anime, and storytelling. When we were in the studio, he was asking tons of in-depth questions about his character, the story, themes, etc. Always a good sign from the writer's perspective. >_<

 

That really really cool. I hope voice actors know that even jaded gamers like me, that don't even really care if a a game has VO or not, very much appreciate it when a voice actor respects their audience and tries to 'get into the game world/lore' so to speak.

I think Crispin Freeman's going to be the voice of the male wizard in Diablo3, too. Awesome. :lol:

Agreed. I'm happy to hear some/most of them don't view it as just another gig. And that they realize there are a ton of gamers excited about what they're working on. A heartfelt performance from a voice actor in a game can make it amazing in itself.

 

Portal 2 for example. 3 of the best voice acting performances i've ever heard, and they made that game truly special.
