Castlevania actor Robert Carlyle talks about his role as Dracula.
by Ben Reeves
When MercurySteam started work on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, it envisioned that Gabriel Belmont would be a muscle-bound Conan the Barbarian type. Once actor Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, 28 Weeks Later) came on board, however, the team decided to shape the protagonist into a more grounded, thoughtful character. During recording sessions for the first game, Carlyle wasn’t given a lot of [sic] work with — the team didn’t even have concept art to show him. In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Belmont has taken on the role of Dracula, so we sat down with Carlyle to talk how the actor has changed his approach to the character and how he prepared for voicing one of the most iconic villains in history.
AAAAAAH! THANK YOU!!!
