So this just game to my mind randomly. Any wishes for voice actors for the protagonist(s) in DA3? For male Inquisitor I'd like to see either Roger Cross, Troy Baker or Tom Spackman, depending on where he is from. And for the female Inquisitor hmm... maybe Grey DeLisle or Felicia Day. It should be fine as long as they don't pick ANYONE that even closely reminds me of Jason Brody's voice actor from Far Cry 3 :D. (talk) 11:23, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

Maybe I'm sentimental, but I'd like Johny Yong Bosch or Steven Blum or Crispin Freeman as voice actor of my Inquisitor. (talk) 11:35, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

If Johnny Yong Bosch voiced the male Inquisitor, I would never play a female. (talk) 20:16, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'd like to hear Brandon Keener as the male inquisitor. "Can it wait for bit, I'm in the middle of some Echan-tation." (talk) 18:57, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

So far as I know the only Thedasians who generally have American voices are the Dwarves, so I'd say the above suggestions are highly unlikely - perhaps more sutible for Mass Effect 4. I'm pretty sure that both male and female Inquisitors will be voiced by British actors, given just how much of Thedas uses the various British accents. It's possible they might go with a French actor as it's said to be set in Orlais, though I'd say that's unlikley. It's a shame Jo Wyatt did Hawke in DAII, I loved her voice it'd be perfect for an inquisitor, but based on the fact that both Hawke voice actors had minor voice roles in DAO, I'd hedge a bet who evers doing the the Inquisitors will have been seen in Dragon Age before...

Fereldans are based on Scotish people, elves in DA2 have Welsh accent because like in other franchises they are based on Celtic, that's why British actors are hired for dubbing characters. New countries, new people, new accents. (talk) 19:59, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
Damn Scots! they ruined Scotland! Henio0 (talk) 21:09, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
No, Fereldans are (loosely) based on the English, not the Scots. Characters have distinct English accents, and the culture is somewhat Anglo-Saxon. Developers say that Ferelden is similar to what England would have been like had it thrown off it's 'Norman' invaders, as the Fereldens did to the Orlisians (though as a history buff, this comparison makes little sense to me as William the Conquer hated the French, and had a legitimate right to the English throne).
Characters from Tevinter, Kirkwall, Navara and the Anderfels, for example, all sport English accents. They say that "a British accent is sufficiently exotic to transport the viewer to a different reality while still being comprehensible to a global audience"[1]... this is the case in nearly all fantasy (Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, for example).

Plus it seems more appropriate for medieval times. There wasn't an American accent back then :) Henio0 (talk) 21:09, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
In previous forum was a stubborn wikia contributor, who wanted to make others think his way about Free Marches as based on America. I think that's ridiculous and I agree more with those, who think Free Marches are more like Italian nations shared after Roman Empire collapsed. But we're getting off topic.

NO FELICIA DAY! NO! JUST.... NO! Now, don't mistake that as Felicia-hate, I don't hate her. I quite like The Guild and I thought she did an alright job in New Vegas but I hated the self-instert-mary-sue Tallis and I don't think she could pull off voicing the main protagonists at all. Now, aside from that little detail, I don't mind whether the Inquisitor has an American accent or a British one as long as they were good. Although I probably would prefer British. I think a French accent might grate on me after a while, especially if the VA wasn't actually French. (DDragonfly1990 (talk) 09:55, April 23, 2013 (UTC))

Motherfuck Felicia Day. She wouldn't have gotten past fanfic status if it were up to me. It's not hate or jealousy or what have you. She's probably a cool person one on one or when it's just her and her circle. Not my type, but I bet we'd end up chopping it up if we met... But using a B grade actress from a moderately famous JW show from the 90's reeks of desperation even if it wasn't their [BW/EA's] idea. The fact that DA2 in it's entirety was [supposed to be, pfft whatever] about Hawke's Rise to Power and then we take a field trip to Orlais in MoTA just because [it's really all about Tallis] does not do her character any favors. Compound that with the fact that MoTA robs the player of the illusion of choice and you've got people, like me, disliking someone for a ridiculous ass reason. EA should really think things through before making these decisions. At least they were smart enough to pull the plug on Exalted March and to fold it into Inquisition. Just a poor man's 2 coppers.

James Woods

(That James Woods thing^ isn't from me) Wynne doesn't have an English accent and she is Ferelden. Also why did Mahariel's clan have to change accents? It's a fantasy world, there are no England, Scottland, France, United States, or Wales- so why must all the accents be British?--Liam Sionnach (talk) 15:12, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

Why British? Because using real world accents is cheaper and easier than making fictional/artificial accents. In Star Wars Imperials speak with British accent, when Rebels speak with American accent. (talk) 16:58, April 24, 2013 (UTC)
Right, I don't mean they need to make up new accents. I'm just getting sick of the British accents being the default fantasy accents. It's completely arbitrary. Why did the elves have to go from North American accents to Welsh? If it was just Merrill I wouldn't mind, because she was a minor character anyway, but why the whole clan? It wouldn't be hard to explain, maybe the different clans have different accents. Merrill wasn't originally part of Clan Sabrae- boom! She can have the Welsh accent, the others keep their original accents.--Liam Sionnach (talk) 18:00, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

If I wanted a young Inquisitor, I'd like him to be voiced by Johnny Yong Bosh and if an experienced one, I'd prefer him to have voice of Steven Blum. (talk) 08:37, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
