Starfield’s Player Character Was Almost Voiced By These Companions

I love a “what could’ve been” story. Today’s concerns Starfield’s silent galactic problem solver of a protagonist and how they could’ve been voiced by at least two actors who now play other prominent roles in the game.

For much of Starfield’s development, Bethesda intended to give the player character a voice, like it did in its previous open-world RPG, Fallout 4. However, the dev team ultimately changed its mind, opting for a (mostly) silent protagonist so that the galactic-scale environment could breathe a bit more. Bethesda also reportedly wanted to avoid giving the character “too specific” of a voice. Fallout 4’s voiced protagonists also weren’t a universal hit, with many players likely preferring a silent Bethesda protagonist as its games have traditionally featured. But though we knew Bethesda was originally set on casting an actor to voice Starfield’s protagonist, we didn’t know who that might’ve been. Turns out, one of the actors is Elias Toufexis, voice of Deus Ex prequel series’ protagonist Adam Jensen, known to Starfield players as Sam Coe. The other was Cissy Jones, perhaps best known for playing Delilah in Firewatch, who now voices Andreja in Starfield.
