  • Melina Juergens and Steven Hartley reprise their roles from the first game

In the production of Hellblade 2, developer Ninja Theory has utilised plenty of motion capture to recreate the cast of voice actors in the game. In doing so, it’s created one of the best-looking games of the generation - something I praised heavily in my review of the game.

The first Hellblade had very few characters, but the cast remained remarkably strong nevertheless, with the protagonist of Senua shining through enough to earn herself a sequel.

There are a couple of returning faces in Ninja Theory’s sequel, and plenty of new additions to the cast, too. I’ve listed them all down below, in order of appearance.

After rolling credits on the main story of Hellblade 2, there are a total of 12 voice actors credited in the principal cast. 

The two returning actors from the first game are Melina Juergens and Steven Hartley. Juergens plays the titular Senua and won countless awards for her performance in the first game. The most striking thing about her performance is that Juergens wasn’t a trained actor before taking on the role of Senua, instead drafted in at the last second from her previous role as a video editor at the studio.

Meanwhile, Hartley reprises his role as Shadow, the voice that speaks to Senua throughout the game. It’s unknown what Shadow's relationship is to Senua, but it's alluded that it's the voice of her father, tormenting her throughout her journey.

From the other actors on the list, you might recognise Paul Bullion from productions such as Netflix’s The Witcher, in which he played Lambert. He also appears in Peaky Blinders as Billy Kitchen. Meanwhile, Gudmundur Thorvaldsson has appeared in the show Fortitude, and Netflix’s comedy movie about the Eurovision Song Contest.
