Maintenance for the week of May 27:
• PC/Mac: No maintenance – May 27

Has anyone figured the voice actors behind our playable characters?

After toying around with character creation and google more about the actors that worked on this game, I came into the realization that some of the big voices in the gaming industry did voice our playable characters. However, information regarding on who voiced what is scarce and incomplete. Has anyone found anything or is there any updated article?

    Not sure what you mean by "playable" characters, but I know Bill Nighy (Victor from the underworld movies, Davy Jones from the pirate movies etc.) does a few characters, including that Breton king who rules over the Daggerfall Covenant (whose name eludes me atm).

    Imdb has a list of the main character voice actors, plus those who have done random npc ones.

    I think that @Maulclaw is referring to the various screams and grunts that our characters make as we do things, or things are done to us. I would think it would be very hard to identify the actor. We would need someone like @ZOS_BeckyIchnoski to tell us.

    For the rest, you can go to Imdb, as suggested, but for Summerset, they did post a list: https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/comment/5247248/#Comment_5247248. Also, sometimes UESP will tell the actor behind significant NPC characters.

    Whoever's credited as "other voices/characters" are probably responsible for that. Crediting voice actors is quite rare in the games industry because ironically they don't have much of a voice when raising concerns. It's a shame given how many of them tell their lines brilliantly, and breathe additional life into player avatars. ^^

    I have no idea who voiced my dunmeri lady, but I'm pretty sure her hard breathing while sprint was voiced by a male actor.
    One of the two of us definitely has gone mad. It only remains to define whether this one is the whole world or just me.

    Oh thank you so much for posting that list! And thank you for using so many! It's always horrible hearing the same few voices in Oblivion/Skyrim but ESO does a much better job!

    Let's play a game of how many names we recognize!

    Troy Baker (Everything!)
    Taliesin Jaffe (Percy!)
    Tara Strong (Raven? She's in everything!)
    Gideon Emery (Fenris!)
    Liam O'Brien (Illidan! Vax don't make me cry again)
    Steve Blum (Oghren)
    Travis Willingham (Grog!)

    And it's not on the list but I know Jennifer Hale voices Lyris Titanborn!!

    There are more voices in there (Tyrael) but I don't recognize all the names, just their voices sometimes. Thank you so much for posting the list and thank you voice actors for imbuing character through your voice acting!

    Hi! This should help you out!

    Oh, my various nonexistent deities. You have NO IDEA how happy this list has made me. I've been trying to figure out who voiced my characters since beta!

    (I've also just won a 4.5-year-old bet that I'm pretty sure only I remember, where I said, "I bet my Bosmer main is Tara Strong; really sounds like her" and my gaming pals were like, "Nah, it's probably someone else" even though Strong does other voices in the game. If any of y'all ever come to the forums, I WIN, and you owe me sushi. :D:D )

    I would love to see a complete voice list some day. There are numerous NPC's whose voices I can't place, but I love them so much that I'll make side trips to talk to these characters for the 500th time, just to hear dat voice again.

    EDIT: I just realized what was already mentioned above...Imperial voices apparently don't exist. XD I was looking to see who voices my Imp guy, and it seems he has no voice! (I save screenshots of all the sliders and settings at character creation in case I ever need to remake a character. It has come in handy a surprising number of times. Like now.) I'll have to play around on him and see if I can match his voice to one that's already on the list, since most of the voice actors do multiple races.
