GTA 5 Voice Actress: "People Are Freaking Out… I Have No Idea Who I Played"


 GTA 5 Voice Actress: "People Are Freaking Out… I Have No Idea Who I Played"
topic by Da Ill One - 04-30-2013, 06:06 AM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


Shari Albert is voicing… well, she's voicing someone in GTA 5, but she doesn't know who. Oh.

Shari Albert has been unearthed as one of the voice actresses in GTA 5 by GTAForums - the only problem is that she claims she has no idea who she played.

The initial speculation was that she played Amanda, the mother seen in the second trailer for GTA 5, after her credit appeared on IMDB.

Shari Albert tweeted back in February 3rd 2012 "Booked a video game that won't tell me what it is until the recording Monday- its like they're the top secret police!"

Yesterday, possibly as a response to GTA fans tweeting her and asking if she voiced Amada, Shari tweeted: "People are freakin' about this video game I voiced. People: I have no idea who I played. I just read what they put in front of me. #paycheck"

It's not the first bit of videogame voiceover work the actress has done - she also provided voiceover work for Superman Returns and voiced Lorna Miles in Alan Wake.

GTA 5 voice actress has no idea what character she played

Like it or not, even our most beloved games have actors and actress who aren't real familiar with their role. When it comes to voice acting in video games not everyone gets the attention as Beyond's Ellen Page, as evidenced by GTA 5 voice actress Shari Albert who has "no idea" who she played in the game.
Shari Albert has a role in Rockstar's highly anticipated game Grand Theft Auto 5, but her IMDB page lists it only as "various." I'd like to think a majority of people -- especially the ones who, you know, have acting parts in the game -- have a good idea as to hype surrounding the new Grand Theft Auto, but it doesn't seem like Albert was real prepared for the onslaught of attention (especially after today's trailer drops) she would receive.
Here's her tweet from yesterday.

Believing a real actress would have some more motivation behind her lines than just a "#paycheck," I asked her how she got into "character" without knowing her role. Shari clarified to me that when she's brought into the studio she usually knows the "circumstance and what's up in the moment."
"Usually with video games that's fairly straightforward," she told me. "Video games are bare bones. With TV, film and theatre you actually get time with the script. V/O work you're in and out."
Now it could be that Shari was a minor role as her IMDB doesn't specify; however, it is speculated that she is the voice of Amanda, Michael's wife who is having an affair, a seemingly pretty important part. You'd think she'd be told something like that in advance. Seems like a pretty difficult gig to just be brought into the studio and told to read some lines. Shari has does voice over work for Alan Wake and Superman Returns.
Do you think it matters if Shari Albert doesn't know what role she had in Grand Theft Auto 5?
