It’s the cast of Uncharted 2 …
We’re pretty sure Jeff Rubenstein over at the PlayStation blog has the best job in the world.
Not only does he get to jet around the globe and cover cool gaming events, he also gets to interview truly awesome people like Nolan North, Emily Rose and Claudia Black. Or Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher and Chloe Frazier to the rest of us.
In two separate interviews (though the girls do gate-crash Nolan’s solo exposÃ©) Jeff picks the minds of the three cast members on what it’s like to be involved in one of the most anticipated sequels of all time.
What’s nice to see from the interviews is how genuinely affectionate all three actors are of the game and its fans. Nolan especially appears to revel in the role and the whole persona of Drake. Which leads us to believe that his response of “Me?” to the question of who should play Nathan Drake in a film version of the game is not actually as outlandish at it may first seem. Hey, as he says it himself, he has the hair …
Jeff probes further and we get a personal insight into the game’s development from how the actors believe motion capturing adds a feeling of theatre to the creative process to how Naughty Dog were more than happy to have those who get so close to the characters ad lib a little and add their own flavour to the dialogue.
Finally, we considered flagging this article with a spoiler warning for those of you who were not aware that Elena returns in Among Thieves. Considering her character model appears in the multiplayer beta, and the fact that we’re pretty sure there is no chance in Hell you’ll get to this fall without seeing her pop up in some fashion, we hope you don’t mind that we just assumed that her appearance in the sequel is no longer a secret.
