I have always been fascinated by voice actors and their exceptional talents. Video Games include some truly impressive examples of voice acting. It's often tough to imagine a human face to a game's character and some of these examples are rather surprising. The following is a link to a slide show illustrating the real-life pictures of those behind the voices of some of the most iconic characters in the Video Game world.

Slide Show



Slide show includes:
Charles Martinet (Mario)
Camilla Luddington (Lara Croft)
Steve Downes (Master Chief)
Jen Taylor (Cortana)
Nolan North (Nathan Drake)
Ellen McLain (GLaDOS)
Terrence C. Carson (Kratos)
Kevin Conroy (Batman)
David Hayter (Solid Snake)
Roger Craig Smith (Sonic the Hedgehog)

No pics or links to pics, as that seems like a lot of research for people who are just quickly browsing through threads.

Edit-Either I was temporarly blind or you added the link, s&f

I had the link in there but it was in the middle of the paragraph. Hopefully this format is more clear.

Sorry about that lol but on topic, Batman doesn't look too tough and snake looks way younger than I expected considering I was playing mgs about 18 years ago. The mario guy I had seen before but none of the others as far as I can remember. Lara Croft looks pretty hot though and actually like the character she is playing (sorry dont remember her real name).

It's always odd to put faces to character voices sometimes. Especially when they don't look like what you picture in your head.

Nice list. I want to mention an actor of one of my all time favorite game characters. The actor goes by the name Gunner Wright and he voices the main character Isaac Clarke from the Dead Space series. Isaac Clarke is modeled after Gunner Wright and is given the likeliness of his actor which really adds a believable and really likable aspect to his character as well.
