Homeland And True Blood Actors Join Killzone Shadow Fall

Guerrilla Games have announced two new additions to the cast of Killzone Shadow Fall in which you play as a Shadow Marshal under your boss, the Vektan Security Agency director Sinclair.

That role will be played by British actor David Harewood, best known as David Estes the deputy director of the CIA’s Counter terrorism center in Homeland. Like all the best actors he has appeared in Casualty and Doctor Who and also had a recurring role in ITV’s Fat Friends.

His counterpart is Echo, an intelligence operative for the Helghast who will be played by True Blood actress Jamie Gray Hyder.

As you can see from the gallery above (which also includes two new weapons), the actors likenesses have been used in the game and they have also been motion captured. You may not recognise Ms Hyder in the mo-cap suit as she spends an awful lot of True Blood walking around with no clothes on and getting her hands on an equally naked Joe Manganiello.

Not that I’m jealous or anything.

  1. Thought David Harewood was the worst actor on Homeland. Well, him and Brody’s wife, but at least she got her tits out!

    • Totally agree, more wooden than a 2by4

    • Her tits definitely distracted me enough to not completely hate her character. :P

  2. Wasn’t he in Battlefield 3?

  3. Jamie is a female? What is it with this American mishmash use of names in a gender context? Christ, I hate it.

    Good to see though that a female probably has an important part in the story. The Killzone universe always only had one female in it which makes no sense from a biological point of view. Hopefully she isn’t the only one.

    • There were actually two female side characters in KZ 2 but they were never really that important nor interesting. Perhaps Shadow Fall will change that.

  4. David “one expression” Estes. :/

  5. Who are these people?

  6. Nice to see another female character, I liked that about KZ1. Plus seeing the Helgast rifle I hope now they’re bring back secondary fire that it gets its shotgun fire mode back!
