December 16, 2011

North's role: Nathan Drake in the Uncharted franchise

North's take: "It's nice to have a role that isn't just any other voice. It's my performance. I keep coming around to a quote from Andy Serkis: 'What we do in motion-capture suits is proper acting, like any other actor. Except we wear digital makeup.' I kinda looked at it very early and realized that this is the future. It's nice to know that a role I helped create has become so popular, because there's so much of me in it. I would love to be a gamer, but I'm not very good at it. So I don't like to play a lot, because I'm constantly watching myself die, over and over. It gets a little disconcerting after a while."
