“We’re lucky because we live in LA, and all the actors are very close. He’ll come in, he’ll read the scripts with us, do a table read with the other actors. It’s not just him; all the other actors are integral like this. We’ll do a table read and they’ll all give notes – ‘I think I’d do this,’ or ‘We should do it like that’. We’ll take all that stuff into consideration. When Amy [Hennig, Naughty Dog's creative director] is writing she says she always tries to hear Nolan in her head. And then even more integral than that, at the very end of the process when we’re almost done, we’ll take done gameplay segments where a designer will play a level, and then Nolan will straight-up play it as Drake. He’ll watch what’s going on and react to it. A lot of those one-liners that you hear is just him riffing.” – UC3 director Justin Richmond, speaking to Videogamer, about Nolan North’s involvement in the series.

    Uncharted makes for a great adventure title, I’d imagine that Sony would want to continue the series even if it doesn’t involve Nathan Drake & his pals.

    I bet they have a right laugh doing all this.

    Nolan North is a legend. Did you know that his Christopher Walken impression is so good, he once dubbed an entire Walken performance in a film? It’s high time the Oscars recognised video game acting.

    And – by every account without exception – he’s a thoroughly nice bloke.
