Meet Nolan North, the World's Greatest Video-Game Actor
Meet the man whose voice has launched the most popular gaming franchises in history. Here, he sounds off on some memorable moments.
North's role: Hades in God of War
North's take: "I haven't had the privilege of doing Hades, except in the first game. I don't know why. I know that the teams changed during development, so maybe they wanted to go with their own vision. I've always been a little disappointed—fans of the game would stop me and ask me to do the voice. It was years ago, but I've always loved that role. It's Hades. It's a god. I remember doing the thing and feeling above it all. I don't care if you're on the side of good or evil, if you're playing a god, it's empowering as hell."
