For our second Final Fantasy XIII interview, we were joined by Troy Baker, the voice of Snow Villiers. As an experienced voice actor already before landing this role, Troy brought his charisma to the role of what is arguably the game's leading man.
Past Credits: Matt Baker (Brothers In Arms); Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia); Kanji Tatsumi (Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4); Conan (Age of Conan)
I was originally cast as Cid Raynes, but Jack Fletcher saw me as Snow. It became an 11th hour switch and I remember him saying 'I'm going to see what you can do with this, don't make a fool out of me'
Troy Baker, 26 Mar 2010
Troy talks about his experience entering into the world of voice acting, starting off doing car commercials and working his way into anime before venturing into the world of video games. He also takes us through his process of auditioning for the game and how he wasn't meant to be playing Snow Villiers, but also takes the time to talk through his love for the franchise.
