Nolan North (1970)

Type :  

  Summary  

Nolan Ramsey North is an American actor and voice actor born in New Haven, Connecticut. He has been described as "the nearest thing the games industry has to a bona fide leading man."

  Biography  

North attended the University of North Carolina with a baseball scholarship and majored in journalism. He worked as a reporter for almost a year in New Jersey before moving to New York City to pursue stand-up comedy and acting. North eventually relocated to Hollywood and was cast in the General Hospital spin-off series, Port Charles, playing Dr. Chris Ramsey during the show's run from 1997 to 2003. He married fellow Port Charles actress Jill Murray in 1999 and has two children. During Port Charles' run he worked on a few video games as a voice actor and began to focus on voice acting following Port Charles' cancelation.

One of his most notable roles came in 2007 when he voiced and motion capped the character Nathan Drake for the video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Since then, he has continued to portray the character Drake in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception . In an interview with The Guardian, North reflects on his time as Drake as requiring "a lot of imagination. Motion capture is basically theatre in Spandex; there's minimal props, and you need a willingness to make an ass of yourself." North as Drake has been twice nominated at the Spike Video Game Awards in the "Best Performance by a Human Male" category.

Other notable video game voice work includes roles as the "Prince" in Prince of Persia, The Penguin in Batman: Arkham City, Vossler in Final Fantasy XII, Desmond Miles in the Assassin's Creed series, Doctor Edward Richtofen in Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops, Brawl in Transformers: War for Cybertron, and Deadpool in several Marvel video games and productions. He also voiced the personality spheres and defective turrets in Portal 2.

North is well known in his animation roles such as Cyclops in Wolverine and the X-Men, Madara Uchiha from Naruto: Shippuden, Snow Job in G.I. Joe: Renegades, Raphael in TMNT, and both Superman and Superboy in Young Justice, making him the first actor to voice both of them.
