Nolan North is to be awarded an extra special BAFTA at an event in West Hollywood on Monday 11th June, just before E3 kicks off. North is getting the extra gong in recognition for his outstanding contribution to performance in games.
“To be recognised for one’s work is always special, but to be recognised by BAFTA is truly an honour. I am humbled beyond words,” said North. Previous winners include Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill (on behalf of Riot Games), Brenda Romero, Amy Hennig and Markus Persson, aka Notch, the Minecraft chap.
North is most famous as his work as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted games but has also voiced Ghost in both Destiny games, Desmond Miles in the Assassin’s Creed series, David in The Last of Us, Doctor Edward Richtofen in Call of Duty, and many other characters.
He has recently teamed up with his digital brother, Troy Baker, to create the web series Retro Replay where the two will play old games and have top bants, as the kids say these day.
