The voice acting is one of the best aspects of Diablo 3, with every piece of dialog in the game having full voice overs. If you where wondering who the real people where behind the virtual characters you talk to all the time in Diablo 3, look no further. I have compiled a list of all the voice actors including their photos, and as you will see the in-game characters look a lot like their real counterpart!
Note: Filmography for each voice actor will be in the following format: Movie/Game name (Character voiced)
Let's start with the player classes.
The male wizard was voiced by Crispin Freeman which has a long list in his Filmography including:
- Photon (The Emperor)
- Wolverine (Tesshin Asano)
- The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (Scott Lang)
- Final Fantasy VII Advent Children (Rude)
- Resident Evil: Degeneration (Frederick Downing)
Freeman is one of the few that doesn't resemble the in-game character that much.
The female version of the Wizard is voiced by Grey DeLisle, another well known artist that was called "golden-voiced" on the Harp magazine. If you watch cartoons, you will recognize her from her Filmography:
- Scooby-Doo! Pirates Ahoy! (Daphne Blake)
- Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes (Red)
- Bolt (Penny's Mother)
- Van Helsing: The London Assignment (First Victim)
- The Powerpuff Girls Movie (Linda)
DeLisle also voiced several characters in one of my favorite childhood RPGs called Baldur's Gate.
She slightly resembles her in-game counterpart, but not that much.
Witch Doctor (Male)
This one was of particular interest to me since it is my main character's class. The male Witch Doctor was voiced by Carl Lumbly, an actor and a voice artist. Here is some of his Filmography:
- Justice League: Doom (Martian Manhunter and Ma'alefa'ak)
- Minerva's Den (Charles Milton Porter)
- Alias (Agent Marcus Dixon)
I definitely noticed a resemblance between them.
Witch Doctor (Female)
The female Witch Doctor is voiced by Erica Luttrell, who is an actress and a voice actress. Luttrell has voiced the following and many others:
- The Magic School Bus (Keesha Franklin)
- Dave the Barbarian (Candy)
- Dragon Age: Origins (Redcliffe Refugee, Eerie Elf Spirit, Circle Tower Tranquil, and many others)
- Random! Cartoons (Sailor Bird)
Luttrell resembles the Witch Doctor quite a bit.
Demon Hunter (Male)
I bet a lot of you want to know who voices the enigmatic male Demon Hunter. The answer is Robin Atkin Downes, an actor and a voice actor. Here is some of his Filmography:
- StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (Science Vessel and Additional Voices)
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising (Backstabba, Ork Boy, and Commando Nob)
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Tenzin)
- Infamous (Lawyer and Homeless Man)
- Prometheus (Ship Computer Voice)
Blizzard seems to have liked Robin's look quite a bit, as the Demon Hunter looks exactly like him.
Demon Hunter (Female)
The female version of the Demon Hunter is voiced by Anna Graves, who has voiced a ton of games already. Here is some of her Filmography:
- Mafia II (Civilians)
- Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight (Zone Defender)
- BioShock 2 (Naledi Atkins - Multiplayer)
- Avatar: The Game (RDA)
- Lost: Via Domus (Lisa Gellhorn)
This one also bears a strong resemblance.
The gruff voice of the mail Barbarian comes from the mouth of Dorian Harewood. Here is a portion of his Filmography:
- Legion of Super Heroes (Dr. Mar Londo)
- Private Practice (Duncan Stinson)
- Astro Boy (Dr. Tenma)
- The New Batman Adventures (Judge)
This one bears almost no resemblance at all.
The female Barbarian is voiced by actress and voice actress Athena Karkanis. Here is a part of her Filmography:
- Star Wars: The Old Republic (Jedi Consular Female)
- Nerdland (Patty)
- Rainbow Six: Vegas (Joanna Torres)
The female Barbarian also bears no resemblance to her voice actor.
The male Monk is voiced by American voice actor Jamieson Price. Known for his booming voice, here is some of his Filmography:
- Tales of Graces (Malik Caesar)
- Mortal Kombat (Original Sub-Zero, Noob Saibot, and Announcer)
- Blazblue: Continuum Shift (Iron Tager)
- Super Street Fighter IV (Narrator)
They don't really look like each other. Maybe if you shave his head :P.
Rajia Baroudi voices the female Monk. She does both acting and voice acting. Here is some of her Filmography:
- Dungeon Siege III (Saraya)
- NCIS Video Game (Maryam Malak)
- The Saboteur (Ludivine)
- Red Faction Guerrilla (Vasha)
The only thing similar between these two is the hair color.
Now that we covered all the playable characters, lets look at who voiced the Followers, the Artisans, and some other plot Characters. For these entries I will only list who voices them and a photo comparison, no Filmography (so it doesn't tale forever to read).
