If you thought you heard a familiar voice coming from one of the droids in SWTOR, chances are you were right. If you keep your ear out for it, you will be able to hear and confirm that Anthony Daniels, the actor who played C-3PO in all of the Star Wars films is also in SWTOR.  IMDB lists him in the full voice cast but doesn’t specifically list the character(s) that he plays but many people have recognized the voice while testing the game. IMBD also says of Anthony Daniels:In addition to playing C-3PO in all six “Star Wars” films, he played the part in the NPR radio dramatizations of “Star Wars” (1981), “The Empire Strikes Back” (1983), and “Return of the Jedi” (1996).

James Ohlen Twitter Status

There could be more big changes coming to SWTOR as we near the release date in December. We know that the staff is working very hard to get the game in tip-top shape and ready to go for launch. This is why it’s fun to hear posts like this one from James Ohlen about the game. James Ohlen says via Twitter: “Writers finished a major milestone for post release content. We’re going to keep half of the voice actors in Hollywood employed for years.” What do you think it means? BioWare is touting the voice acting as one of the most important parts of their new MMORG and one of the biggest things that sets it apart from other similar games. Ohlen is the Game Director of SW:TOR. He’s also Lead Designer of Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 (I loved those games), NWN (my husband played this one a lot),…

James Arnold Taylor’s One Man Show

James Arnold Taylor is an amazing voice impersonator and voice-over actor who has a long and talented career. You can take a look at the “Talking to Myself” video he did (Obi-Wan & Beyond“.) when performing at Disney’s Star Wars Weekends 2011, to see for yourself just how talented he is. It’s amazing how he can be the voice of so many well-known characters and sound so different. If you’re not familiar with the name James Taylor, you’re sure to recognize many of the voices he portrays. Throughout his career, he was the voice of many favorite cartoon characters such as Fred Flintstone and Johnny Test but his talent stretches far beyond cartoons. He is the voice you hear on many commercials and video games and you might not even know it. He is the voice of the famous Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars. One of the most well known…

TORWars Video: Interviewing Vette

 Being a gamer girl and Star Wars geek myself, I was excited to see this exclusive interview by TORWars with actress Catherine Taber. If you don’t know who she is by looking at her, you’re sure to know her voice. She played Mission Vao in KOTOR the voice of Numa in The Clone Wars, and she’s also the voice of Padme Amidala in The Clone Wars.  Now she has a new role and it’s a pretty important one for upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic. Taber plays Vette, the blue skinned Twi’lek companion character that we have all seen in advertisements and videos for SWTOR.  Taber was at SDCC and was kind enough to take the time to give TORWars an exlcusive interview which they have up for the rest of us to enjoy as well. They talk with Taber about the roles she’s played, her voice acting and what…

“…and they told me it’s coming out at Christmas” says SWTOR voice actor Paul Darrow

 In an interview with Shadowlocked.com, voice actor Paul Darrow may have leaked information about the release of SWTOR. But don’t start blocking off your schedule for long gaming sessions just yet because I’m not so certain this guy knows much more than the script they handed him to read. In fact, I’m quite certain you (yes, you reading this right now) know more about TOR than this guy. He couldn’t even remember the name of the game: “Actually I’ve just done another one for Lucas, about a month ago. Now what are they calling it…?” Moving along… next Darrow says, “Anyway, I’m a Sith, and they told me it’s coming out at Christmas. I was just doing some tops and tails, because I had recorded it about a year ago. I’m your guide – a Sith warrior.” So there you have it. While Darrow is the first NPC voice heard…

IMDB Lists SWTOR Voice Talent (Look Who’s Talking)

Thanks to The Movie Internet Database (aka IMDB) – the greatest source of film industry information available to hacks like me – we now have some idea of exactly who is lined up to play the voices in Star Wars: The old Republic Employing all of my powers of deduction and film knowledge, I’ve picked out Joseph Gatt as the most recognisable face on the list, since I’ve just seen him blued up and frozen as a Frost Giant in Kenneth Branagh’s spectacular Thor adaptation. But there are some more recognisable talents here, even if you don’t know the names or the faces: names like Jennifer Hale, who is a demi-God of the voice-work universe, and who has also already worked on a number of Star Wars videogame properties including Knights of the Old Republic. Michelle Bonilla does the voices of Huttese Alien / Nautolan Alien / Ortolan Alien /…
