Voices cast for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Bethesda Softworks have announced that a trio of British actors have been cast for their upcoming Xbox 360 RPG.

Patrick Stewart (the Emperor)

65 year old Stewart has a background in theatre but is famed for his Star Trek character Lean-Luc Picard. More recently his fanbase has extended through the X-Men films as Professor Charles Xavier,and has also made guest appearences in the likes of Frasier and Extras.

Sean Bean (the Emperor’s son)

46 year old Sean Bean is no stranger to gaming, after his character Alec Trevelyan was digitised into the N46 007 classic, GoldenEye. More recently he is known for portraying Boromir in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Terrence Stamp

Stamp’s career has resurged since appearing in Steven Soderbergh’s art house thriller ‘The Limey’. Stamp recently portrayed Supreme Chancellor Valorum in Star Wars Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

In addition the three Brits are joined by Lynda Carter (TV’s Wonder Woman). “Quite honestly, we wrote the parts with these individual actors in mind,” said executive producer Todd Howard. “It’s an honor to have them lend their talents to the project.”

Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is expected to be released on the 360 this year, and with such a strong cast we can only hope the game matches up to its potential.
