Mario actor Charles Martinet will be joined by the voice of another iconic Nintendo character at this month’s MCM Birmingham – none other than Patricia Summersett, who stars as Princess Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
The Canadian-American actor is the first official voice of Zelda in the fantasy franchise’s 30 year history, playing Hyrule’s famous princess as a fiercely independent young woman who initially clashes with Link, although the pair grow closer as their story unfolds. The best-selling Breath of the Wild has been hailed by critics as one of the greatest games of all time.
Summersett’s other videogame roles include two characters in Ubisoft’s hugely popular Assassin’s Creed series – Hope Jensen in Assassin’s Creed: Rogue and Galina Voronina in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate – and demolitions expert Ash in 2015 tactical shooter Rainbow 6 Siege. Other gaming credits include For Honor, Far Cry Primal, Suikoden Tierkreis and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
In addition to her voice acting work, Patricia Summersett has appeared on the big screen in Darren Aronofsky’s controversial psychological horror film Mother! and in Wiebke von Carolsfeld’s indie hit The Saver.
