Any time you load up a video game and are greeted by a superb voice actor, it’s time to pick up your smartphone and Google who that is. In Middle Earth: Shadow of War, the voice actor that plays Talion is indeed phenomenal, and many are no doubt wondering who that is. Most of you will be quite familiar with at least some of his work.
Talion Voice Actor - Troy Baker
Most people who played Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor will know that Troy Baker is the voice actor behind Talion. He’s back to voice Talion in Middle Earth: Shadow of War, and he’s once again done an incredible job. This will come as no surprise to those who are familiar with Troy Baker’s work over the past few years.
Many will know Troy Baker as the voice of Sam Drake from games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. My personal favorite, however, is Troy Baker as Joel in The Last of Us, a role he’ll return to in The Last of Us II.
What people might not know, is that one of Troy Baker’s voice acting buddies from the Uncharted series, Nolan North, is also in Middle Earth: Shadow of War. Nolan North voices the role of the Black Hand of Sauron, as well as Nemesis Orcs.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War is a game with a lot of cut scenes and cinematics that help to drive the story forward. The voice acting performances by Troy Baker and Nolan North certainly help, but the entire cast does a fantastic job. In fact, if you want to look up a specific character and who the voice actor is that portrays them, try the Middle Earth: Shadow of War IMDB page.
