Nolan North has taken over the role of everyone's favourite Exo for Destiny 2's third expansion, The Forsaken.
Nathan Fillion has not reprised the role of Hunter Vanguard, Cayde-6, in the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, The Forsaken, saying he was "unavailable" to provide the voice of the doomed Exo. Nolan North has stepped in to fill the role, making this the second time he has taken over for an actor in the series.
Back in 2015, North took over the role of Ghost in Destiny, re-recording Peter Dinklage's lines. The Game of Thrones actor's performance had received its share of criticism, but Bungie explained that the reason for the switch was due to Dinklage's availability.
"I wasn't available for this last instalment, its not me doing the voice for Cayde-6," said Fillion on Kotaku's Splitscreen podcast, confirming that he didn't provide the voice in the E3 trailer.
"No, that wasn't me," he said. "In a wonderful, amazing turn of events, it's actually Nolan North."
When asked about his thoughts on Cayde-6, Fillion replied, "How do I feel about Cayde-6? I absolutely love him. How do I feel about that character dying? I don't personally believe it, because he's a Guardian.
"He should be able to come back. I mean that's their whole thing, is that they come back right? The whole thing is the resurrection."
When told that Bungie has emphatically said that Cayde-6 is definitely dying, Fillion said, "Well then in that case my go to would be I'm really excited to work with Activision again and do the prequel as how we get to Caydes one through five...[a] Cayde-6 prequel. That's what we need to start talking about right now."
In a very nicely timed turn of events, Nathan Fillion revealed a fan made Uncharted film yesterday, satisfying the plethora of fans who have wanted to see Fillion take on the role of Naughty Dog's roguish adventurer - who has always been voiced by Nolan North.
The 15 minute film follows Nathan Drake on a quest to find the lost treasure of the Flor de la Maralso and also stars Avatar's Stephen Lang as Sully, Mircea Monroe (Episodes) as Elena Fisher, and Geno Segers (Banshee) as the villain.
Destiny 2's Forsaken DLC releases September 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
