Earlier today, Bethesda Softworks announced the roster of voice talent to be featured in November’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Led by screen legend Christopher Plummer (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Sound of Music”), the cast features a wide variety of talent from both the big and small screens.
Plummer will voice Arngeir, an elder of a philosopher-monk clan who mastered the Way of the Voice, one of Skyrim‘s gameplay tent-poles. Fellow film actors Max Von Sydow (“Minority Report”, “The Exorcist”) and Joan Allen (“The Contender”, “The Bourne Ultimatum”) star as the chronicler of the Blades warrior clan Esbern, and one of the Blades’ few surviving members Delphine, respectively. For Joan Allen, Skyrim marks her debut performance in a video game.
Also confirmed is Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, as Gormlaith Golden-Hilt, one of the Nord heroes responsible for overthrowing the dragons long ago. Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”) plays one Imperial General Tullius, and Claudia Christian (“Babylon 5”) plays his chief lieutenant Legate Rikke. Vladimir Kulich (“Smoking Aces”) is also in credits, playing Ulfric Stormcloak, the leader of the secessionist Stormcloaks, who fight for Skyrim’s independence from the Empire.
The complete cast of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim features over 70 performers and 60,000 lines of dialogue.
“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.”
