A new developer diary from Assassin’s Creed I & II scriptwriter Corey May was posted on IGN yesterday, and in it he chats about the voice recording process and all the work it entails.

He also mentions the voice actors, and few tidbits about them, some of which you may know already, and some you may not.

“We were fortunate to have our cast of present characters return for the sequel. Kristen Bell would play Lucy once more. Working with her was one of the highlights of the process for me. I was (and remain) a HUGE fan of Veronica Mars,” wrote May. “She’s got this amazing ability to blend sweetness with bad-assery which is exactly who Lucy is. You saw the sweetness in AC1 and you’ll see the bad-assery in AC2. She’s a phenomenal actress. Oh and just to clear up any confusion – Lucy is folding down her finger in the “reveal” scene in AC1 when she lets Desmond know she’s an Assassin. It hasn’t been cut off. So spread the word!

“Nolan North is back as Desmond. His mastery of deadpan humor is unmatched. And that’s important to me. Even in the direst of circumstances he finds a way to break the tension. A little bit of self-referential humor helps to keep Assassin’s Creed from feeling overly melodramatic (and you’ll notice quite a bit of that in the past segments of the game now as well).

“Phil Proctor also returns as Warren Vidic, So there’s a tiny spoiler for you.”
