The role of Ghost has been recast, with Nolan North taking over – and re-recording all of Peter Dinklage’s existing dialogue.
Game Informer has reported that Nolan North was brought in to take over the voice of Ghost in the upcoming Destiny expansion The Taken King. In the interest of continuity, Bungie also had North re-record all of Peter Dinklage’s existing dialogue.
“We wanted Nolan North’s version of the Ghost to wake you up at the start of the journey at level one and follow you all the way to level forty,” said creative director Luke Smith.
“They really wanted me to put my stamp on it,” North said. “They let me bring what I wanted to the role. You have to give it your own spin. For that reason, I specifically said I didn’t want to hear anything that someone else had done, so that I didn’t have some preconceived notion of what it has to be. Instead, I just gave it my stamp, and let them direct me accordingly.”
The Taken King will release on September 15.
