TC CARSON, THE VOICE ACTOR WHO PLAYED KRATOS IN GOD OF WAR, EXPLAINED THE REASON HE WAS ABSENT FROM THE GAME THAT CAME OUT IN 2018
Those who enjoyed the latest God of War game on PS4 will remember something in particular about Kratos. Not just when it came to his physical appearance, since he looked older.
They also noticed that the voice of the Ghost of Sparta sounded different. All because the voice actor TC Carson was replaced by Christopher Judge. Several noticed it, but in 2018 no one knew for sure why this change occurred.
IT WAS NOT HIS THING TO STAY OUT OF GOD OF WAR ON PS4
Who decided to speak about it was Carson himself. This singer and actor, who also played Mace Windu from Star Wars in various projects, gave an interview on the djvlad channel on YouTube.
That’s where he explained what happened, saying that in the games leading up to this one, two artists were used. One of them did the motion capture, while the other provided his voice. But everything changed at the initiative of Cory Barlog.
Barlog wanted both the motion capture and voice acting to be done by the same person. The problem was that TC Carson’s complexion did not match Kratos’ appearance in the new, at the time, God of War.
It was for the same reason that a new selection was made, and the winner was Judge. The problem was that the original actor was not notified of any of that. That was a regrettable “lack of tact” from the responsible team.
TC CARSON ALSO VOICED MACE WINDU FROM STAR WARS
Sony never informed him that a new actor would be chosen, and that made Carson very unprofessional. It’s a similar case to when Kiefer Sutherland replaced David Hayter as Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5.
It is certainly a shame that this continues to happen. It gives the impression that the actors are “disposable” for the companies. Nothing is worse than finding out that someone’s position was given to someone else, and you are never told about it.
You can imagine that Christopher Judge will take over as Kratos again, this time in the next installment of God of War. In this case, it is supposed to be called Ragnarok.
It is currently one of the most anticipated games on the PlayStation 5, Sony’s brand new console. It is to be imagined that this title, if it comes out this year, will be one of the best sellers. But that has yet to be confirmed. You will have to be as patient as possible.
