In an interview with IGN.com, Tricia helfer revealed that she’s returning to the Starcraft gaming franchise for Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void. The actress revealed that she’d done a taping for the game with the entire cast, marking the first time they’d all been in the room together.
Helfer went on to say that this felt like a final chapter to some degree.
“It was a lot different — because I came off Heart of the Swarm, where it was a huge Kerrigan story,” Helfer reflected. “So this is a lot less. For Heart of the Swarm, I taped multiple sessions. The character felt the same. I don’t know how much I can give away. There’s definitely some…it feels like there’s a finality to it.”
“I’m not a gamer,” Helfer laughed when asked which other games she’d love to take on. “It’s funny, I think it was at DragonCon, and I was part of a Mass Effect panel, and I was so nervous to do it because, one, I feel like a hypocrite because — my job is voicing them, so the fact that I’m not a gamer is not that I disrespect it, because I love voicing games; it’s just not where my brain works. I don’t even know how to Facebook. I was supposed to do an Ascension Q&A on Facebook this Saturday, and I was like, ‘I don’t know how to do this!’ I had to set up a personal page to then go through my fan page, to access it, and my web guy put it on, and I couldn’t get it on. I’m a technological idiot. So the idea of sitting there and trying to play a game…I love that I can be in the games. My involvement in it is being in the games, but I am just terrible at playing them. So I haven’t even started. I haven’t played any games. It’s hard to talk about the games in a panel, because it’s such a different filming style. In Ascension, for instance, even if my character’s very light in the first three episodes, I still get the story, because I had the script and I read it. On set, the days I wasn’t filming, I don’t know what they actually got on camera, but they taped what was in the script. With video games, you’re given lines.”
