Now Playing: Mass Effect Andromeda - Natalie Dormer as Dr Lexi T’Perro

Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer will play Dr. Lexi T'Perro in Mass Effect: Andromeda, BioWare announced today. She joins another Game of Thrones actor, Gethin Anthony, who has a role in the game as well. As you might have guessed, this led to a fun moment during the recording process.

"I had a bit of a moment earlier when Gethin Anthony's voice came in over across my [headphones]," she says in the video (below). "It's kind of a weird one, hearing Renly Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell in different guises."

Dormer and Anthony aren't the only TV and movie actors who voice characters in Andromeda. Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, SpongeBob) voices Ryder's father.

This isn't the only video that BioWare put out for Andromeda today. A new gameplay video, the second in an ongoing series, spotlights the character customization, including skills and more.

You can watch that video below. The first in the series, which was themed around combat, was released last week--watch it here. Next week's video will focus on exploration.

So we have big stars voicing video game characters, but we have unknown nobodies taking the starring roles for a big franchise movie like Predator.

It makes absolutely no fxxking sense at all!

Freaked out a bit at the headline. Clicked on the article and said, "Thank God it's not Sophie Turner!" Sansa is the worst.

They really need to stop calling this game an RPG when it's a shooter.

@sol_invictus3: Well it's an RPG so idk why you would call it a shooter.

Yeah, the game is coming out in less than a month & the just added her.

The headline & even the article is worded entirely wrong. They have announced that she is in the game. They have released a video showing that she is in the game. They have not just added her.

Somebody has to call them out on this lazy journalism.

As my daughter would say "I'm super excited" for this game. Can't wait. I really like her as an actress as well. I'm sure her character voice work won't disappoint.

She utterly sucked in the equally terrible "horror" movie, "The Forest." Barely managed her GoT role...

But then again, these are the people who cast the AI NPC/PC with the monotoned & overrated Tricia Helfer.

...so perhaps I shouldn't expect much from Bioware in the casting department.

(Granted, they also cast Jack, so...)

So the "there'll be more female aliens in Andromeda, than in the previous games" line really meant that there'll just be more asari? Wonderful....
