The Podcast: Voice acting, with the stars of Assassin's Creed Origins

The talent behind Bayek, Aya and Cleopatra shares their experiences of bringing games characters to life

The latest episode of The Podcast is now available to download - and we've got something rather special for you this week.

We're privileged to be joined by three prominent actors from the world of video games, all of whom appeared together in Assassin's Creed Origins.

Our guests this week are Abubakar Salim (who plays main character Bayek), Alix Wilton Regan (Bayek's wife Aya) and Zora Bishop (Cleopatra).

The trio share their experiences with performing in video games - which in Alix's case stretches back to 2009's Dragon Age: Origins - as well as the merits of voice recording versus motion capture and the challenges actors face as publishers turn their attention to established Hollywood talent.
