Baldur’s Gate 3 Voice Actors

In the Forgotten Realms, the only limit is your imagination... and the roll of the dice.

The classic tabletop roleplaying game rolls new critical success.

A long-awaited next-generation RPG for both die-hard Dungeons & Dragons fans and newcomers to the genre, Baldur’s Gate 3 is faithful to its D&D roots with an epic branching plotline and an impressive cast of characters.

But what truly sets the latest Larian Studio hot drop apart from its predecessors is its fully voiced dialogue lines–a massive feat for a player’s choice game of this scale. A dedicated cast of voice actors bring the Origin characters to life, adding layers upon layers of depth to your adventure as you battle and loot your way across the Forgotten Realms.

Ready to roll for adventure? Here’s a list of all the Baldur’s Gate 3 voice actors that propel the game into a league of its own.

Astarion (Neil Newbon)

  • Astarion
  • Rogue

Astarion spent centuries under the cruel commands of his master, Cazador. As an enslaved vampire spawn, he would seduce unwitting victims to feed Cazador’s thirst for power. Now free, Astarion is known as the power-seeking rogue in the shadows – but his body still bears Cazador’s scars, a reminder of his harrowing past.

In Baldur’s Gate 3, Astarion’s enigmatic story unfolds through the talent of Neil Newbon, a seasoned voice actor in gaming, with titles like Final Fantasy 16, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Resident Evil Village under his belt.

Shadowheart (Jennifer English)

Shadowheart is a devoted cleric of Shar and the sole survivor of the Mistress of the Night’s order. She is on a mission to deliver a relic of immense power to her coven in Baldur’s Gate before the artefact casts its magic upon her. Trust isn’t given freely by the secretive Shadowheart, but she is a key companion and potential romantic interest in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Jennifer English, the voice behind Shadowheart, brings a seasoned expertise and mysterious aura to the character. Before taking her place amongst the league of Baldur’s Gate 3 voice actors, she played Leya in Divinity: Original Sin 2 and fans might even recognise her as Latenna in Elden Ring.

Gale (Tim Downie)

In a land where powerful Wizards are a rare find, Gale stands out as one of the most formidable magic wielders. Although a literal ticking time bomb beats inside his chest, Gale’s personality is one of the liveliest you’ll encounter in the game.

Baldur’s Gate 3 may be Tim Downie’s first-time venture into video game voice acting, but he portrays Gale’s ambition and inner moral battles with incredible versatility and skill. Downie is a well-known English actor acclaimed for his roles in films and TV series like Outlander and Paddington.

Lae’zel (Devora Wilde)

Lae’zel is an incredibly strong Githyanki fighter and one of the first potential companions you meet in Balduer’s Gate 3. Your paths cross after you’ve been mind-flayed by the invasive tadpole that lives inside your head. This parasitic infestation affects Lae’zel as well, and she needs your help to escape its clutches.

Like all Baldur’s Gate 3 voice actors, Devora Wilde brings a wealth of experience in video game voice acting. Devora has lent her voice to notable titles like Battlefield 2042, Phoenix Point, Arknights, and Total War: Warhammer 3.

Wyll (Theo Solomon)

Wyll is another potential companion who survived the Nautiloid crash, but his story is more complicated than what meets the eye. After he struck a deal with the Devil to preserve his heroic legacy as a Warlock, ‘the heroic blade of Frontiers’ is desperately trying to escape the bargain before it devours its soul.

Wyll was originally voiced by Lanre Malaolu. However, with the game’s release, the reins were passed on to Theo Solomon. This role marks his first venture into video game voice acting, yet his prowess in fantasy narration is well-established, highlighted by his successful narration of Leviathan Warhammer 40k.

Karlach (Samantha Béart)

Karlach is a Tiefling Barbarian with a heart-rending backstory. In her chest lies an infernal engine, a haunting reminder of her past as a slave sold to the Archdemon Zariel. Yet Karlach’s positivity and vibrant character is evident in her voice, which is filled with courage and strength despite the tragic events of her past thanks to Samantha Béart’s voice acting.

Béart is renowned for voicing the player character in Demon Souls (2020) and Thomasina Bateman in The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow.

Halsin (Dave Jones)

Halsin of the Druid Grove is another potential companion and romantic partner whose fate is intertwined with your player early in the game. To walk his path, you must liberate this Druid from the clutches of the Worg Pens in the Shattered Sanctum, after which he offers to join you, bringing along his unyielding flirtatious charm.

Although he’s one of the lesser-known voices amongst the Baldur’s Gate 3 voice actors, Dave Jones plays Halsin with commendable depth and intrigue. The British voice actor has previously featured in acclaimed video games such as The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow, Diablo Immortal, and Astrologaster.

Minthara (Emma Gregory)

In the dark corners of the Shattered Sanctum, a Drow Paladin who answers to General Ketheric Thorm plans to attack the Druid Grove alongside her minions. Your encounter with Minthara will determine more than just her fate: will your actions turn her into an early villain or another potential companion?

Possibly one of the most recognisable names amongst Baldur’s Gate 3 Voice Actors, Emma Gregory is known for her roles in Divinity: Original Sin & Original Sin II and other games appearances such as Minerva McGonagall in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Jaheira (Tracy Wiles)

Jaheira survived a civil war, loss, and torture, and still managed to emerge stronger. A central character in the main story and a potential companion, her presence by your side can prove crucial if you make the right choices. In Baldur’s Gate 3, both Jaheira’s character and the voice actor behind her are returning from previous games in the franchise.

She is voiced by Tracy Wiles, previously lending her voice to characters in Larian Studios’ Divinity Original Sin and Divinity Original Sin II, but you may also recognise the talented English voice actress from Diablo 4.

Minsc (Matthew Mercer)

Minsc is another returning character from the original Baldur’s Gate titles. With his passionate spirit and his hamster friend Boo always by his side, it’s easy to see why the beloved Rashemaar warrior is a favourite character among fans.

Minsc’s voice actor is Matthew Mercer, a Los-Angeles-based actor known for his multiple roles in video games and animation. He plays Ezekiel in Starfield, Sagomir in the upcoming Dragonheir: Silent Gods, and features in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. He is renowned for his contributions to Dungeons & Dragons and Tabletop games, as well as his role as Jotaro in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and Cassidy in Overwatch 2.

Ketheric Thorm (J.K. Simmons)

​​In Baldur’s Gate 3, General Ketheric Thorm is among the most formidable antagonists you’ll encounter. He is leading the Cult of the Absolute with an undead army from Moonrise to Baldur’s Gate and yours may be the only group powerful enough to stop him.

His immortal, stone-cold demeanour is brilliantly voiced by J.K. Simmons, an accomplished actor who needs no introduction; a few of the many roles he is known for are J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man movies and Nolan Greyson, a.k.a. Omni-man in Invincible.

Orin (Maggie Robertson)

Another noteworthy villain is the shape-shifting, enigmatic menace known as Orin the Red. With her unpredictable sadistic motives, she embodies a true threat in Faerun and can deceive even her most loyal allies.

She is voiced by BAFTA Game Awards nominee, Maggie Robertson, a seasoned video game voice actor who took the gaming world by storm in her role as Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village.

Gortash (Jason Isaacs)

As you approach Baldur’s Gate, another formidable antagonist looms near: Lord Enver Gortash, a skilled politician raised by demons, set to take over the city. Along with Orin the Red and Ketheric Thorm, they make up the Dead Three who try to lure you into siding with them.

Voiced by the renowned actor Jason Isaacs, acclaimed for his portrayal of Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter universe, Gortash embodies authority and ambition. Like so many other Baldur’s Gate 3 voice actors, Jason Isaacs is a newcomer to video game voice acting, but his powerful voice adds a distinctive tone of charisma and depth to his character.

The Guardian (Ethan Reid)

  • The Guardian

Choosing an Origin character in Baldur’s Gate 3 will surely save you a couple of hours of character customisation before the game starts. However, you will still need to create a Guardian, a character who remains an enigma until the very end. They appear in your dreams after an early Act 1 rest at Druid Grove, but their intentions are as unclear as their motive; sincere or manipulative? That’s up to you to decide.

Ethan Reid, a BA Acting graduate from RoseBruford, already has a radiant career in radio voice acting, drama, commercials, narration, and audiobooks. Proficient in classical works and trained in Shakespeare and Greek classics, he possesses a powerful, assured, and often seductive voice. Fans already love his charming, calming, and soothing tone for the Guardian and anticipate his appearances in the game.
