It’s hard to tell who is the voice behind some of the most popular video game characters of the day. At times, without a face, we fail to recognise who is who behind what character. Delving deep into the world of video game characters, we discovered that quite a few famous faces voice some of our favourite characters.
Patrick Stewart – Emperor Uriel Septim VII (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion)
Although Emperor Uriel Septim only lasts a few minutes in the introduction of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Patrick Stewart still voiced it better than anyone else could have done. Patrick Stewart has also been the voice behind Zobek in the Castlevania Lords of Shadow trilogy.
Lena Headey – Callista Curnow (Dishonored)
Lena Headley, also known as Cersei Lannister was support character in the 2012 stealth action game, Dishonored. One of the most memorable moments in the Dishonored is when you walk in while Callista Curnow is talking a bath. This is after you are told not to peek through the key hole or barge in while she is bathing. You even get to ask her if she wants company. At least you were not related to her.
Peter Dinklage – Ghost (Destiny)
Although Nolan North voices Destiny’s Ghost, before the release of The Taken King, it was voiced by none other than Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage. He did all the voice work right up until House of Wolves expansion pack.
John Goodman – Dan Hagar (Rage)
John Goodman the iconic actor with a big personality voiced a character in the 2011 first person shooter, Rage. Dan Hagar was a character in the game that you meet right from the start. He was your main guy when it came to getting things done in the game.
Liam Neeson – James (Fallout 3)
In Fallout 3 the main game revolves around you trying to track you dad down, who was voiced by Liam Neeson. Although it is hard to miss seeing as he is not on the phone threatening to find and kill people, it is actually him.
Samuel L. Jackson – Officer Tenpenny (Grand Theft Auto San Andreas)
The police officer in GTA: San Andreas has one of the most recognisable voices in the world, the voice of Samuel L. Jackson. That is because Mr. Jackson himself voiced the entire character’s dialogue from start to finish.
Mark Hamill – The Joker (Batman Arkham Series)
Believe it or not, but the Joker in the Batman Arkham series is actually voiced by none other than Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. I know it is a lot to take in, but the crazed psychopath in the Arkham series could not have been in better hands.
