'Dead Space' Remake Reveals Partial Voice Actors Cast

by Rainier on Nov. 10, 2022 @ 2:57 p.m. PST

The sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up to offer a deeper and more immersive experience.

Dead Space is being developed exclusively for next generation consoles and PC, raising the level of horror and immersion to unprecedented heights for the franchise through stunning visuals, audio and controls powered by the Frostbite game engine while staying true to the original.

Fans will experience an improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more as they fight to survive a living nightmare aboard the desolate mining starship, the USG Ishimura, all while uncovering the dreadful mystery of what happened to the slaughtered crew and ship

In Dead Space, Isaac Clarke is an everyman engineer on a mission to repair a vast, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong. The ship's crew has been slaughtered and infected by some alien scourge...and Isaac’s beloved partner, Nicole, is lost somewhere on board. Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills as he attempts to uncover the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs”, Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the escalating terrors of the ship, but his own crumbling sanity.

EA and Motive Studio announced some of the talented voice actors bringing the remake of sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space to life.

The announcement was made through the official Dead Space “The Bench” Instagram account, which has been challenging fans to complete puzzles to unlock exclusive Dead Space news and digital content, most recently including an Isaac Clarke Cosplay Guide. Followers of The Bench, known as the Comms Relay Crew, receive sporadic mission briefings from Chief Engineer Ariel Rousseau, a new Dead Space character aboard the USG Ishimura who needs the Comms Relay Crew’s help to restore communications to the ship.

Last year, the franchise announced that previously silent protagonist Isaac Clarke would now be voiced by Gunner Wright, the original voice of Isaac in Dead Space 2 and 3. Below, please find a list of the newly announced voice actors, along with the characters they’ll be voicing and some of their notable projects:

  • Tanya Clarke (Nicole Brennan): Tanya Clarke reprises her role as Nicole, which she provided the voice and likeness for in Dead Space 2 back in 2011. Clarke is also known for her work as Becky in A Beautiful Mind, Emily Lotus in Banshee, Queen Rynda in Inhumans and more.
  • Anthony Alabi (Zach Hammond): Former NFL athlete Anthony Alabi will portray Hammond in the remake. Alabi previously starred in the Netflix comedy Family Reunion as Moz McKellan and appeared in recurring roles on Showtime's Shameless, Amazon's Bosch and Disney's Raven's Home.
  • Brigitte Kali Canales (Kendra Daniels): Brigitte Kali Canales plays Kendra in the remake. Prior to this, Canales’ recurring roles have included Rachel in Fear of the Walking Dead and Trace Martez in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Currently, Canales is also seen in S.W.A.T. as Officer Alexis Cabrera.
