You know that awful phrase “a face for radio” – it means you’ve got a nice voice and great personality, but you aren’t good looking. I hate that.
I really do like to pay attention to voice acting in games – voice actors don’t seem to get a lot of attention. So I thought I’d investigate what they actually look like because hey, it’s nice to put a face to a voice, right!
So, just to make it equal, I thought I’d go with 5 Male and 5 Female actors – how’s that?
Suggestions in the comments please!
Top 5 Male Voice Actors
In no particular order…
AKA the guy who is in every game I ever play. Not only is he in everything, he is really cute.
What do I know him from? He’s Cecil (FFIV DS, Dissidia Final Fantasy), The Prince of Persia, he featured as John in Shattered Memories, the “Future Luke” from Professor Layton 3, Derek Stiles in Trauma Centre (that is, virtually anything produced by Atlus), He yelled “ORPHEUS!” a lot in Persona 3 as well as doing the voices for Pharos and Ryoji, he managed to worm his way into the first character you play as in Final Fantasy XII, he makes you scream and cry when Serph starts talking after being silent the whole game in Digital Devil 2. Honestly, he’s in everything.
“Gorgeous” George Newbern is one of those gentlemen who makes your jaw drop because he’s gorgeous. Seriously! Girlfriend agrees with me here.
What Do I know him from? He is probably best known among fans for his role as Sephiroth in FFVII: Advent Children and also Dissidia. He does a very good Sephiroth. He also plays my favourite, Nooj, in Final Fantasy X-2.
Grant “Gorgeous” George (that joke will not get old) has a really lovely smile, and plays one of my all-time favourite characters in a game. Not that I am in any way prejudice.
What Do I know him from? He acts the incredibly handsome Warrior of Light in Dissidia Final Fantasy (although I tend to play him very spammily so you do get sick of him yelling “SHINE!” every two seconds) and more importantly, the awkwardly attractive Shinjiro in Persona 3 (and also Jin! That is talent, because Jin’s a douche… actually… so is Shinjrio…. so!)
Every picture I find of him, he looks grumpy – but it’s a good look for him.
What do I know him from? He provides the voice for the incredibly
Derpy Bubbly Bartz in Dissida Final Fantasy (I play that a lot). He is also in a bunch of other stuff!
He’s incredibly dapper looking, and also really smiley. I like it!
What do I know him from? Yep, he’s in Dissidia Final Fantasy again (as Gabranth) and voice acts another one of my favourite characters EVER – Basch from FFXII. Bonus! He also voice
Marly Marluxia in Kingdom Hearts! Isn’t that awesome.
Suggested by Steve Morgan (let’s link to
his other site for once haha figure that one out Google) – I must admit…. he vaguely looks liike Snow. (That is, blonde). Awesome.
Where do you know him from? Snow from FFXIII, Booker from BioShock Infinite and Joel from The Last of Us
Top 5 Female Voice Actors
Once again, no particular order, let’s get the ball rolling with…
I like to consider Laura Bailey as the female version of Yuri Lowenthal. She is in everything. If you’re playing a game and there’s a sexy lady, it’s probably Laura Bailey. And she is genuinely really pretty too!
What Do I know her from? Rayne from BloodRayne (sexy lady), Blaze from Sonic Rush (uh… sexy cat?), Cloud of Darkness from Dissidia Final Fantasy (sexy lady), Dahlia in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (she can be a sexy lady)
I love how smiley she is, and also the fact that’s she’s holding a banana.
What do I know her from? She’s Lisa in Silent Hill. Have you ever played the Sims? She does the Simlish – awesome!
She has a kind of timeless beauty that I like. Pay attention, this pun is useful.
Where do I know her from? She provides the voice for Time Witch Ultimecia in Dissidia Final Fantasy, also most people will know her as Sniper Wolf in Metal Gear Solid.
Totally beautiful smile! Also, she’s been in a lot but I only really know her for one thing…
Where do I know her from? “Leon!!” Every time you die in Lament of Innocence you will hear her mourning you. She is Leon’s love interest – Sara.
The real-life wife of Yuri Lowenthal, and they make a very cute couple because they are both very cute!
What do I know her from? She is Mitsuru from Persona 3. You can in fact make the Protagonist date Mitsuru, which is very cute since their voice actors are married. Awww.
Also suggested by Steve who is On Twitter. One of the Google suggests for her name is “Tara Strong Hot” so…
What do you know her from? Rikku in Final Fantasy X, Juliet in Lollipop Chainsaw
