30-Day Angel of Darkness Challenge Day 18: Thoughts about the Voice Actors?

What are your thoughts about the voice cast of AoD? In additon to the actors shown below, Internet Movie Database credits Phil Morris for voicing Karel. Unfortunately it doesn't list the entire cast, nor do the game credits, so I'm not sure who did all the voices. I've read that Janice may have been Jonell putting on a French accent, but I don't know this for sure.

If you've come late to this challenge, feel free to answer any of the questions that interest you. There's no time limit. And if you'd like to participate in past challenges, you're welcome to do that too. Check out the September 2011 and September 2012 challenges in the archives.


  1. I think they did a great job, especially Jonell. Her voice work in Last Revelation and Chronicles was fine, but in this game, with the angrier, more sarcastic dialogue, she really shone. I was surprised, back in 2003, when I read that Joss Ackland had done the voice of Eckhardt. In those days, famous actors doing videogame voiceover wasn't as common. I thought that was cool, and I thought he did a great job voicing this villain without going too far over the top.

  2. I liked Jonell Elliott as Lara and Joss Ackland as Eckhardt. Best of all, they were English!

  3. Jonell Elliott and Joss Ackland were great! Also, Eric Loren (Kurtis Trent) once got turned into a human-dalek mutant hybrid on Doctor Who, so I like him too.

    1. OMG! I had no idea that was him! Shrensh, you are an awesome font of knowledge, as well as being a complete glitch magnet. ;)

  4. Definitely the best voice of Lara in the whole series. In Revelations it shone through and in AoD it was the definite embodiment of the character! Besides Lara I don't think anyone was very very special (except Janice, so let's all just move along, we make the place look crowded!)

  5. Jonell will always be my favourite Lara! The other actors are great, but this is her game.

  6. move along ma cher you make the place look crowded :)
