Posted on January 16, 2012, Phil Hornshaw Jennifer Hale Does NPR Interview, Talks Voice Work in Mass Effect Games
I happened to be in my car this morning, driving through Los Angeles traffic and listening to my local NPR station, when I heard someone pretending to run and avoid getting shot.
“That sounds like Jennifer Hale,” I thought to myself.
Sure enough, Hale, the voice of Mass Effect 3‘s Commander Shepard along with hundreds of other characters across video games, was being interviewed by local NPR personality Madeleine Brand for her morning show. The interview is actually a few months old — it was originally aired back in November, as Internet magician and fellow Game Fronter Ross Lincoln discovered — but it’s a great piece that includes some talk about Hale’s experience in the industry in general and working on Mass Effect in particular.
Even better, thanks to the magic of the Internet and the coolness of public radio, you can listen to the interview right now. Just follow this link over to The Madeleine Brand Show and stream the interview.
