Life is Strange lost a key actor due to SAG-AFTRA strike

Ashly Burch only served as a consultant for Chloe in three-part prequel Before the Storm

The SAG-AFTRA voice-actor strike means that Ashly Burch will not reprise her role as Chloe in the second season of Life is Strange.

The existence of a second season of Life is Strange was announced by creator Dontnod Entertainment last month. However, an additional prequel season called Before the Storm was unveiled at the Xbox press conference this week.

What wasn't apparent in Before the Storm's brief appearance onstage at E3 was a change in one of the protagonists, Chloe, who was voiced in the first season of Life is Strange by Ashly Burch. Yesterday, Burch used Twitter to clarify that her role had to change due to a strike organised by the SAG-AFTRA union, which started in October last year.
