Gato Salvaje Studio shared the first round of voices behind their cast of companions and pivotal characters in a new casting trailer. Set to enter Steam Early Access this summer, players will be able to explore the Celtic Age of The Waylanders as an adventurer who has been cut loose from time.
The Waylanders team has assembled a powerful cast of veteran voice actors with casting credits from RPG classics like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, as well as TV and film roles. Simon Templeman, Ash Sroka, Sara Kestelman, Rosalind Eleazar, Colin Salmon, Lisa Jacobs, Fred Tatasciore, and Ralph Ineson, as well as many others, have all come together to lend voices to Celtic heroes, villains, and mythological creatures.
The full cast list will be released closer to early access launch this summer.
Simon Templeman joins the party as Amergin – A charming and witty master druid determined to restore the balance of the world. As the Master Druid of King Ith’s court, Amergin is regarded as a magickal and political authority by other humans, but due to his youth, immortals rarely take him seriously. They should – he’s the most powerful druid to grace the Celts in generations.
As an accomplished actor in TV and video games, Simon Templeman is credited on many AAA titles. RPG fans will recognize him as the voice of Loghain from the popular Dragon Age series.
Rosalind Eleazar is the proud and intelligent necromancer Khaldun. Eldest daughter of a noble family in Meroe, she was sent to Egypt to be educated in the best schools Alexandria could offer. Now as a priestess of the god Osiris, in King Ith’s court, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Rosalind Eleazar’s experience in TV dramas Howards End, Rellik, and Harlots, brings weight to this fearsome magic user.
Colin Salmon is Berath, an immortal Mourian professor. Blunt, calm, and deadly, Berath has spent the human generations since his childhood traveling and learning, and has become a skilled and dangerous Pathfinder. Despite everything he’s learned, however, he still finds wonder and mystery in the tiniest butterfly.
As a well-known TV and film actor, genre fans will know Colin Salmon from his roles in Arrow, Krypton, Mortal Engines, and Sofia the First amongst others.
Lisa Jacobs dreams of the sky as Delba, a huge Fomorian warrior. As a champion of her underground race, she’s known for her strength, considerable size, ferocity, and love of dirty jokes. Youngest daughter of the Fomorian king, as well as one of the youngest Fomorians alive, with only a scant few centuries under her belt, Delba dreams of following her mother to the surface and showing the humans that Fomorians aren’t the monsters they appear to be.
Lisa Jacobs is known for her work in The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank, The Politician’s Wife, and The Criminal.
Sara Kestelman joins the cast as Brigg, a veteran commander seeking new adventures. As former commander in King Ith’s army, Brigg may have retired a few years ago but they are nowhere near ready to settle down. A world of adventure awaits!
In addition to her many TV and film roles, Sara Kestelman voiced Kreia in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords.
Fred Tatasciore has become a boisterous Heraklios. This mighty Greek mercenary is trying to live up to the legends. Heraklios likes beer, hates injustice, and loves a good belly laugh. He has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of Greek legends and myths, and will recount them – loudly, and with many embellishments – to anyone who asks.
Fred Tatasciore’s work includes a substantial list of credits in film, TV, animation, and video games. Gaming fans will recognize him as the voice of Overwatch’s Soldier: 76 and Don Corneo from the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Amber Rose Revah sees the future as Nazhedja. This Immortal Seer has existed for as long as anyone can remember, and has held a high position in Mourian society for centuries. She’s regarded as the world’s foremost magical authority, and she absolutely loves it. Nazhedja can see every aspect of the past and the future… until she met you.
Among her many roles, Amber Rose Revah plays Dinah Madani in The Punisher TV series on Netflix.
Ralph Ineson, is crowned King Ith of Katia, beloved ruler of the Celts in Spain. His relationship with the main character will depend on the background chosen by the player.
Ralph Ineson has played many roles in feature films and television series including The Hunter in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, as well as roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Chernobyl.
Ash Sroka plays Tiana, Commander of the Celtic army, and one of the people currently vying for the throne of Brigantia. Her quest for the throne is a reluctant one; she’d prefer to be a commander for the rest of her life, but she truly believes that no one else has her qualifications and support.
Fans of BioWare’s Mass Effect series will immediately know Ash Sroka as Tali’Zorah vas Normandy. Ash has had a long history with Gato Salvaje, playing Alicia in Gato’s Ar-k games.
