It’s one thing to bring in a well-known celebrity to voice a character for that extra bit of gravitas and publicity. However, Elder Scrolls Online is packed with more marquee voice talent than you can shake a wizard’s staff at.
According to a recent press release, the voice cast for the upcoming game will include:
- John Cleese - Cadwell, the cheerful and endearingly mad lost soul who is not afraid of anyone, even a Daedric Prince. Joining the cast as High King Emeric
- Bill Nighy - High King Emeric , a merchant prince whose luck and determination won him the throne
- Kate Beckinsale - Ayrenn, the leader of the Aldmeri Dominion and Queen of the High Elves who is far more comfortable with a blade than her crown
- Alfred Molina - Abnur Tharn, a wily old wizard and politician who is the head of the Empire’s Elder Council, and the de facto power behind the Ruby Throne
- Lynda Carter - Azura, the Daedric Princess of Dusk and Dawn from Skyrim who is a popular part of Elder Scrolls lore
- Michael Gambon - The Prophet, a mysterious blind man who guides the player through their journey to retrieve their soul
- Malcolm McDowell - Molag Bal, an evil Daedric god from another plane who schemes to enslave the mortal souls of Tamriel
- Peter Stormare - Jorunn the Skald King, an unexpected monarch who led his people into an unlikely alliance
- Jim Ward - Mannimarco, a renegade High Elf wizard exiled from the realm for raising the dead and the world’s most powerful necromancer
- Jennifer Hale - Lyris Titanborn, a Nord half-giant who, along with the Prophet, aids the player on their journey
- Kevin Michael Richardson - Sai Sahan, a noble martial artist and master swordsman
Matt Firor (Game Director) had this to say about the huge ensemble cast: "This extraordinary group of actors helps bring the distinctive characters in The Elder Scrolls Online to life. In The Elder Scrolls tradition, we sought world class talent to add a deep and enriching component to the immersive world the series offers players." He said.
Expect Elder Online for Windows and Mac this April, with the console versions releasing in June.
