I can not consider it was six years in the past that I met Doug Cockle, voice of The Witcher (Geralt) within the video video games. He was a instructor again then, main the performing course at Arts College Bournemouth – such an peculiar place to discover a bonafide online game star.
However loads has modified since then. Doug Cockle not teaches there; he was debating a return to full-time performing after we talked, and shortly after, did precisely that.
In the meantime, The Witcher turned a family identify, propelled into the mainstream by the Netflix TV present. The star of that present, Henry Cavill, turned out to be an open admirer of Cockle’s work, too, being a eager game-player himself. He even invited Cockle to the season one premiere in London, to hang around. They usually did, as Cockle tells me on this episode of the One-to-one podcast present, now out there in all places and for everybody (seek for “Eurogamer Podcasts” wherever you hearken to them).
We discuss quite a lot of different issues as properly. In discover out what Doug Cockle has been as much as in these six years, and the way his transfer again into full-time performing has gone. We discuss in regards to the video games he is been lending his voice to – he has apparently simply wrapped recording on one thing he thinks we’ll discover very thrilling. However it is not The Witcher 1 remake as a result of he hasn’t been referred to as up for that – but.
We discuss in regards to the movies and TV exhibits he is been in, and the stage present he not too long ago appeared in. And we discuss in regards to the many appearances he makes at conventions all over the world, the latest being MCM Comedian Con in Birmingham, the place he frolicked with the voice actors for Triss, Dandelion and – and I like this – Eredin from the Wild Hunt.
We discuss in regards to the craft of voice performing too, what it is like, and the way Doug is aware of he is delivered one thing good. He’s, as I believe you will agree, a beautiful man and really entertaining and considerate to hearken to.
