BioWare Brings All-Star Cast to Voice Mass Effect 3
BioWare is bringing in some familiar and new talent to bring voices to many of Mass Effect 3‘s major league players. We all know that Seth Green will return as the Normandy’s navigator, Joker, as will Martin Sheen who reprises his role as the enigmatic and powerful Illusive Man. Some new voices include that of Freddy Prinze, Jr. (ladies) as James Vega, who is seen in the video trading blows with Shepard, as well as Jessica Chobot who joins the team as news reporter Diana Allers.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the passion and emotion the entire cast brought to their performances in Mass Effect 3,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. “In a story where Earth and the entire galaxy are at war, we needed to take the performances to a level of dramatic power and intensity that we’ve never previously attempted. This extremely talented cast delivered.”
Other returning cast members include Tricia Helfer as EDI, Yvonne Strahovsky as Miranda, Carrie-Ann Moss as Aria T’Loak, Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale as Male and Female Shepard, Ali Hillis as Dr. Liara T’Soni, Keith David as Captain Anderson, and Lance Henriksen as Admiral Steven Hackett.
“I have always loved science fiction and I have always loved games and Mass Effect is really the first time both come together successfully,” said Prinze, Jr. “It is a completely immersive game where you really feel like you’re part of this journey inside this universe. It will make you think, you will care about the character you are playing, and you will care about the characters that you bring into battle with you.”
