BioWare announced today that Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer will play Dr. Lexi T’Perro in Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Dormer will also be joined by another Game of Thrones actor, Gethin Anthony, who has a role in the game as well. Dormer and Anthony aren’t the only TV and movie actors who voice characters in Andromeda. Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, SpongeBob) voices Ryder’s father. Needless to say, this led to a fun moment for Dormer when she heard Anthony in the game for the first time during the recording process.
“I had a bit of a moment earlier when Gethin Anthony’s voice came in over across my headphones. It’s kind of a weird one, hearing Renly Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell in different guises.”
That wasn’t the only news of the day for the game. BioWare also released a new game play video on YouTube. This is the second game play video the company has released and this one focuses more on the character customization, including skills and more.
Here’s the video. Tell us what you think. Are you even more excited about the game because of the stars that are voicing the characters?
