Video: Nolan North talks about the realities of video game acting

Plus, Nathan Drake's butt.

You don't need me to tell you that Nolan North is a ubiquitous figure in gaming. He's been busy lending his voice to every major gaming franchise from Uncharted and Assassin's Creed to the Batman Arkhamverse and Call of Duty for years. So it's safe to say he's learned a thing or two about video game acting, and he's been kind enough to sit down with us and talk us through his experiences, specifically during production of the Uncharted series. It's worth a watch; not only is he a super nice guy keen to pull back the curtain on the 'glamour' of voice acting, his insights on how Naughty Dog make Drake's famously off-the-cuff dialogue feel natural are just really interesting.

And honestly, apologies for starting with a butt question. In times of extreme post-TGS jetlag, I find it comforting to stick to the topics I know.
