In this episode we sit down with Nolan North, one of the great voice over actors we have had the fortune to work with. In this first video of the series we find out about the many games where you can hear his voice including the recently released Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. The gaming industry is creating its own stars as they come even closer to motion pictures. Most notably known for his portrayal of Drake in the Uncharted franchise, North is the closest the gaming industry can come to a leading man. His resume is extensive having appeared in Batman: Arkham City as The Penguin, Assassin’s Creed as Desmond Miles, Prince Of Persia (as The Prince), & And Then There Were None as Patrick Narracott.
His most recent venture, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, blurs the lines between games and film with quotable dialogue and an epic narrative carried by a cast of some of the most talented voice actors in the industry. With the rising demand for more fluid video game animation, North now finds himself blending his voice and acting skills to make a character truly come to life.
Next in our series of videos we will talk to Nolan about other elements in voice over production including how voice over for games differs from other projects and the drawback of voice over acting.
