Putting A Face To The Voice Part 3

This whole putting a face to the voice thing seems to have turned into somewhat of an obsession now and seeing as you seem to like it I thought I’d bring you another part. If you want, you can read Part 1 and Part 2 to see who else has been covered. Let me know of any voices you remember from games and I’ll obsess over them for the next part!

David Hayter – Solid Snake [Metal Gear Solid]

The chances are high that you have all seen this face before. He is the man behind one of the most iconic video game characters of recent times but by doing this article I found out something I was not expecting. Not only is he Solid Snake and various other video game characters he is also responsible for writing the screenplay to X-Men, X-Men 2, The Scorpion King (we all make mistakes) and Watchmen! Wow. He also wrote the story to X-Men 2, not just the screenplay.

Anna Torv – Nariko [Heavenly Sword]

It’s so obvious now I know it. Anna Torv, who now leads the brilliant U.S TV show Fringe, is Nariko. Of course this wouldn’t have been anywhere near as interesting if Anna Torv didn’t start doing Fringe. I love that show and I actually really like Heavenly Sword. Probably one of the PS3’s most underrated.

Michael McConnohie – The Agency [Crackdown]

The voice that guides you through levelling up your super-human law enforcer in Crackdown is also Seth in Street Fighter 4, Astaroth in Soulcalibur, Cosmos and Tracks from the 80’s Transformers TV show. He has well over 200 projects to his name.

Keeley Hawes – Lara Croft [Tomb Raider]

Lara has been voiced by a few people over the course of the franchise’s 8 games but the last two – TR: Underworld and TR: Legend – have been voiced by Keeley Hawes. Keeley is more common to TV than to video games having appeared in some of the UK’s best TV shows including Ashes to Ashes, Spooks and The Vicar of Dibley.

Eliza Dushku – Rubi Malone [Wet]

I know this. You know this. But hey, it’s Eliza Dushku! If you are unaware of this lady, she gained fame as Faith in Buffy and Angel and can now be seen in another of Joss Whedon’s creations – Dollhouse.
