These Are the Actors Behind New Uncharted 4 Characters Shown in Story Trailer
The new talent includes Robin Atkin Downes, Chase Austin, and Warren Kole.
The thrilling new story trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End released this week showcased some new characters. Now, director Neil Druckmann has revealed the names of some of these characters and the actors who portray them in the PlayStation 4 exclusive action-adventure game.
TV actor Chase Austin (iCarly, House M.D.) plays young Sam Drake, while Warren Kole plays the bad guy Rafe. Kole had a small part in 2012's The Avengers and is probably better known for his roles on TV shows like Common Law and The Following.
The third actor is Robin Atkin Downes, who plays the older man seen in the prison sequence in the Uncharted 4 trailer, according to DualShockers. Druckmann declined to provide this character's name. "So, are you ready to seek your fortune?" this character says in the trailer, presumably speaking to Drake.
Downes is a prolific video game voice actor, having worked on dozens of projects in his career, including all three previous Uncharted mainline games.
Uncharted series hero Nathan Drake is voiced by Nolan North, while his brother Sam is brought to life by Troy Baker. Richard McGonagle returns as Sully, while Emily Rose is also back as Elena. Laura Bailey plays new character Nadine Ross. This character generated some amount of controversy, as Ross is black but Bailey is white.
In other Uncharted news, Druckmann recently revealed that Uncharted 4's story was changed "100 percent" after he and Bruce Straley took over as directors. Additionally, Naughty Dog has apologized for using Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag art in the new Uncharted 4 trailer, calling it a "regrettable mistake."
