Although not first seen in Final Fantasy 16 until Chapter 7, hearing the familiar voice of Cid will make you wonder who his voice actor is. So, let's get into revealing who voices Cidolfus in FF16.

The idenity of the english Final Fantasy 16 Cid voice actor is none other than Ralph Ineson. Although not the most well-known name, consumers of games, TV, and film should recognise the leader of the Hideaway's voice in the game right away.

After all, FF16 players coming from Diablo 4 might immediately notice he was the actor who voices Lorarth Nahr. However, it's movies and television where the Yorkshire-born actor will be known from. 

What else has the Cid voice actor been in?

Previously in big roles like in the award-winning 2015 horror film, The Witch, The Green Knight, or Chernobyl, the man who voices FF16's Cidolfus will have been most widely seen in smaller roles across a thirty-year career. That's even in various pop culture franchises. 

For example, whilst playing Death Eater Amycus Carrow in the final three Harry Potter films, one of the most prominent brief roles Ineson had was of Dagmer Cleftjaw in Game of Thrones Season 2. Portrayed in a memorable performance, Ineson played the no-nonsense Ironborn raider who worked under Theon Greyjoy as his first mate in the memorable sacking of Winterfell.

The Cid voice actor hasn't been a stranger to video game roles before Final Fantasy 16 and Diablo 4 though. After voicing Amycus Carrow again in the game version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, he joined the cast of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag as Charles Vane - a notable pirate captain who ended up joining Nassau's Republic of Pirates with protagonist Edward Kenway. 

That's everything you need to know about the English Final Fantasy 16 Cid voice actor.
