The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is full of unique and fascinating characters and chief among them is the titular Zelda. There have been a few actors who have voiced the Hyrulean Princess, but players are wondering who is the voice of Zelda in Tears of the Kingdom. Is it the same actor as Breath of the Wild or perhaps someone new?
