Dead Island 2 has a large cast of human characters, some of whom don’t die horribly. Even better, the overall quality of the voice acting is excellent. But who are these characters voiced by and where might you have heard them before? This is what you need to know about all the voice actors in Dead Island 2.
Dead Island 2’s Voice Actors, in Alphabetical Order of Their Characters.
We’re not going to risk delving too far into spoiler territory, but there are some dramatic and genuinely moving moments throughout Dead Island 2. Those moments wouldn’t be half as heart-breaking if not for the voice actors who lent their voices to these characters.
The game’s six protagonists are voiced (though not motion captured) by the following actors:
Amy – Skye Bennett
Bruno – Jay Rincon
Carla – Carolina Ravassa
Dani – Michelle Fox
Jacob – Okezie Morro
Ryan – Ronan Summers
We’re particularly happy that each protagonist gets unique lines. It’s not just a case of each actor reciting the exact same script. Yes, we’re looking at you, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As for the other characters, here’s who plays who.

Among the biggest names is the returning character Sam B. He was voiced by Phil LaMarr in Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide, but here he’s played by Cavin Cornwall. Cornwall was also in Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (though sadly uncredited) as the excellently named Pemmin Brunce.
You might also recognize Colin McFarlane who, voicing Dr. Reuben Reed here, previously played Commissioner Loeb in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
Skye Bennett, who voices Amy, also cropped up in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
In fact, most of the cast members have appeared in other games. Bruno’s voice actor, Jay Rincon, was in Atomic Heart and Horizon: Forbidden West. Jennifer Armour, who plays both Janet and Evie, also appeared in that latter game, among others.
