Bethesda Softworks have today announced the voice over cast for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and as expected it includes a bunch of high-profile Hollywood talent including Academy Award Nominees.
Two-time Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Christopher Plummer will take on the role of Arngeir, a powerful Greybeard elder, while fellow Academy Award nominee Max Von Sydow will appear as Esbern, a chronicler and agent of the blades who is in hiding. Esbern will be helping players to learn how they can take down dragons in the game.
Another Academy Award nominee makes her first appearance in video games - Joan Allen will appear as Delphine, one of the last remaining memebrs of the blades, an ancient society sworn to protect the Emperor. It's sounding like she'll be a poweful ally. Lynda Carter, best known for playing Wonder Woman, will voice Gormlaith Golden-Hilt, a Nord hero who helped to overthrow the dragons in times past.
Also joining the cast is Michael Hogan as Imperial General Tullius, Vladimir Kulich as Ulfric Stormcloak, Claudia Christian as Legate Rikke as well as Diane Louise Salinger, Renee Victor and George Coe.
In all, there'll be over 70 different voice actors delivering 60,000 lines of dialogue in the sprawling open-world RPG.
"It’s been incredible to have all these actors together," said Todd Howard, Game Director. "When you start a project, you always make your wish-list of actors, and to actually hear them in the game, it’s amazing. We can’t wait for everyone to experience it."
