Jennifer Hale, the voice actor behind the female Commander Shepard, is just as reluctant as you to end the Mass Effect trilogy.

Speaking to EDGE, Hale said she was surprised – but very pleased – by how passionately fans reacted to the game’s ending.

“It says people are invested and they really care and they don’t want to let go, which is awesome because I don’t, either,” she said.

Although Hale confirmed that she had not been contacted for follow-up work, suggesting that no further adventures for Commander Shepard are planned at this stage, the voice actor said she’d be right on board recording additional content.

In fact, Hale is distressed at the prospect of no more games with Commander Shepard front and centre.

“I prefer to live in denial about [the end of Shepard’s story] because it makes me too sad,” she said.

Note that Hale made no mention of unreleased content recorded before Mass Effect 3’s launch; BioWare indicated it was prepared to release DLC well before the game’s ending sparked calls for a new conclusion.

Mass Effect 3’s conclusion has been the subject of much controversy. BioWare co-founder Rtay Muzyka has confirmed some sort of content or update will be released to provide “clarity” to the ending.
