Game Actors Who Are Gorgeous In Real Life

Video game characters are only as compelling as the people who voice them. Voice actors are capable of performances that are as captivating as anything one might see in a movie or a TV show, all without ever showing their faces. But if you peel back the curtains of various recording booths and mo-cap suits, there are also some beautiful faces behind the characters in some of your favorite video games.

While the profession of voice acting transcends the limitations of appearance, there are some actors in video games that are just plain gorgeous. Whether they're playing superheroes, dastardly villains, scruffy zombie apocalypse survivors, or stylish witches, the range of voices these actors can portray belong to some truly attractive people. It just goes to show that you really can't judge a book by its cover — or in this case, a face by its voice.

Here are some video game actors who are actually gorgeous in real life.

Troy Baker

It's impossible to understate the many accomplishments that a voice actor like Troy Baker has made in his long and illustrious voice acting career. But this Texas-born actor is also quite handsome to boot.

Throughout his years of activity, Baker has dipped his toes into several game franchises. He's best known for roles like Joel from the Last of Us series, Booker Dewitt from BioShock Infinite, and Vincent Brooks from Catherine. He's also previously starred in Persona 4, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. His voice has also been featured in several cartoons and anime. 

In 2019, his charming looks were featured in full facial capture when he starred in Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding as major antagonist Higgs Monahan, appearing alongside famous Hollywood stars like Lea Seydoux and Mads Mikkelsen.

He's been nominated for and won several awards for his video game acting work. At the Game Awards 2013 — known then as "VGX" on Spike TV — Baker was even nominated twice for his roles in BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us.

Briana White

This actress' first role in a video game also happened to be an enormous one. Bubbly and stunning, the vivacious Briana White made a splash when she starred in the highly-anticipated and critically-acclaimed Final Fantasy 7 Remake as classic FF7 character Aerith Gainsborough. As an avid gamer who began her thriving YouTube gaming channel back in 2015, she expressed in a vlog update how humbled and fortunate she was to be portraying such an iconic character, especially as her first voice acting role. When she started playing the game on her own channel, her emotional reaction upon hearing her voice work in-game quickly went viral.

In an interview with The Washington Post, White spoke about using her video game knowledge to help in her audition. When it came to recording Aerith's battle cries, she reportedly knew what they should sound like after playing so many games on her channel. During 2020's Halloween season, White even shared pictures of her cosplay of Aerith, and the resemblance is nothing short of uncanny.

Tara Strong

Many millennials likely have fond memories of growing up with Tara Strong's many voices in their childhood cartoons, but this beguiling actress has plenty of game credits under her belt as well. Though she had numerous roles in games that sprang from her cartoon catalogue, she won an award for her performance as Rikku in Final Fantasy X-2 in 2004. She previously voiced the character in the first Final Fantasy X and even reprised the role in 2006's Kingdom Hearts II. 

As the go-to voice for DC Comics' insane clown anti-hero Harley Quinn, Strong has reprised her roles in several successful DC games, including the Batman: Arkham series and the Injustice fighting games. She had major roles the Metal Gear Solid franchise, a zombie hack-and-slash called Lollipop Chainsaw, and PlatinumGames' superhero homage, The Wonderful 101. When it comes to looks and talent, few come close to Tara Strong.

In fact, Strong has brought her characters to life, on occasion. In 2017, she dressed up as Harley Quinn at San Diego Comic-Con.

Keith David

This famous and handsome Emmy-award winning actor has worn many hats, but this handsome fox of an actor was also gifted with a starkly-velvety voice. Whether he's acting in front of camera in horror classics like The Thing or speaking in a recording booth, there's no getting around how hypnotic and captivating his voice is. 

David has spent plenty of time in some very notable gaming franchises, stretching those vocal chords across several different characters. The Hollywood star appeared in the Saints Row series as Julius Little and as himself. He also played Chaos in Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the franchise's PSP fighting game, as well as its sequel in Duodecim. David played Arbiter Thel 'Vadamee/Vadam in the Halo series, as well as David Anderson in the first three games in the Mass Effect franchise. 

He has played the demonic anti-hero known as Spawn in two different mediums: in an animated series for HBO and as a post-launch DLC character for Mortal Kombat 11. Being able to hear a voice like Keith David's in our favorite games make him almost overqualified for this list.

Merle Dandridge

Beautiful and multitalented, Merle Dandridge has had plenty of acting roles in her career. She's strutted her stuff in front of a camera for TV dramas like Sons of Anarchy, on stage for several Broadway productions, and even in the recording booth for some of our favorite games and popular franchises. Her first role in gaming came in the form of Alyx Vance from the cult classic Half-Life series, where she played the character in each of its subsequent releases. In 2013, she provided the voice for Marlene, leader of the Fireflies revolutionary militia organization in The Last of Us; she reprised the role in The Last of Us Part 2. She and Troy Baker even showed off their impressive singing voices in an alternate joke ending for the first game.

She won a BAFTA award for her role as Kate Collins in the critically-praised Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, a cinematic title about a small English village plagued by mysterious disappearances.

Laura Bailey

This sweet and stylish actress features a voice that most fans would be able to recognize within seconds. Known for her work in anime and gaming, her acting range reaches far and wide, From bubbly protagonists to tough-as-nails warriors and sinister villains, Laura Bailey has done it all.

She's reprised several of her video game roles on more than one occasion, including Persona 4's resident idol Rise Kujikawa. In 2009, she became the quintessential voice for Interpol's kung-fu operative Chun-Li, starting with Street Fighter IV. She's also portrayed Marvel's Black Widow in several iterations, including Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Marvel's Avengers. In 2020, she won big at The Game Awards for Best Performance, taking the gold with her role as Abby from The Last of Us 2.

It's easy to admire a extensive career like Bailey's, and you can be sure that you'll hear this stunning actress' voice in the future.

Hellena Taylor

Even though this actress's resume in video game voice acting isn't as prolific as others on this list, one major role that Hellena Taylor has under her belt is a magical lady who's as alluring as the actress herself.

Along with several roles in soap operas and minor roles in rom-com films, Taylor has provided the voice for the stylishly lewd Bayonetta from PlatinumGames' cult classic franchise of the same name. She provided her sultry and iconic voice in the first 2009 game as well as its sequel on the Wii U in 2014 (where she also played her own mother). Taylor reprised the role again in fighting games like Anarchy Reigns and even Super Smash Bros. installments; the character was released in 2016 as DLC. Taylor's character was also featured in an animated movie that recounted the events of the first game.

She is currently confirmed to reprise the role once more in the elusive Bayonetta 3, which has not received any real updates since its announcement in 2017.

Charlet Chung

One of the more remarkable accomplishments of Blizzard Entertainment's hero shooter Overwatch was the company's efforts to have its diverse characters portrayed by an equally diverse cast of voice actors. That includes, but certainly isn't limited to, the gorgeous Charlet Chung.

Born in America to a Japanese mother and a Korean father, Chung provides the voice for D.Va, the Korean eSports pro and mech pilot hero. In an interview with Inverse, she revealed that she truly resonated with the character's spunky attitude and drew from her parents' experience in learning other languages and accents in her audition. She has also performed several roles in TV series like Chuck and Boston Legal.

As a voice actress, Chung has been outspoken in calling for more inclusive and diverse casting in video games. She shares the sentiment with several other voice actors, including Anjali Bhimani (Symmetra from Overwatch) and Sunil Mahotra (Kung Lao from Mortal Kombat 11).

Daisuke Tsuji

This Japanese-American heartthrob has a face and a voice that are rather well-known among PS4 owners. In 2020, he provided face modeling, motion capture, and voice acting for Jin Sakai, the protagonist of the critically-acclaimed Ghost of Tsushima. Spending an entire game fighting Mongols and horseback riding across the island of Tsushima is easy when you spend all that time with Tsuji's handsome likeness. 

Tsuji's performance as a samurai torn between his honor as a samurai and loyalty to his home earned him a nomination for Best Performance at the 2020 Game Awards, as well as a nomination for Best Performer in the 2021 BAFTA Awards. Tsuji has also done voice work for games like Death Stranding and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

He currently runs his own Twitch channel, where he has previously streamed Yakuza 0, Resident Evil VII, and even Ghost of Tsushima. He also has found work on film and TV. Tsuji had a small role in Letters from Iwo Jima and performed more voice work in the Netflix animated anthology series, Love, Death & Robots.

Nadji Jeter

Though his roles in gaming are few, Nadji Jeter's work in some critically-acclaimed games has garnered him quite a bit of attention. And it sure doesn't hurt that he's one handsome, superhero-looking dude in real life.

Having been previously featured in several movies and TV shows like Grown Ups and Grey's Anatomy, Jeter's first video game role came in 2013 when he played Sam in The Last of Us. Jeter portrayed a young boy who made quick friends with Ellie, only to meet a tragic end after being infected by the monstrous cordyceps virus. 

He now provides the voice of Spidey-successor Miles Morales in several iterations; having first played the role in 2017 for the Disney XD cartoon in 2017, he went on to reprise Miles in the popular 2018 Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4. He would return for subsequent releases in both Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a sequel to the PS4 game. Jeter was nominated for a BAFTA Award for his performance in Miles Morales.

Cody Christian

Much like his flower shop co-star, this young and notable hunk debuted in video game acting with one of the most iconic and memorable characters in gaming history. Christian previously starred in a number of movies and shows, including a recurring role on MTV's Teen Wolf series. He might only have one role in gaming, but when that role is a critically-acclaimed remake of a classic JRPG, that's one heck of a way to make an impact.

In 2020, Christian had the honor of playing Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. The young actor replaced Steve Burton, who portrayed Cloud's English voice since 2002, when the character appeared in Kingdom Hearts. Burton would later offer his blessings to Christian for the role on Twitter. Christian went on to portray the character with all the depth, charm, and quirkiness fans have come to expect from Cloud — and his layered and brooding performance netted him a BAFTA nomination.

Reno Wilson

While his handsome mug appears in shows like Mike & Molly and Good Girls, Reno Wilson has lent his alluring voice to several forms of media in the past, including a number of video games.

He first played the Black Baron in PlatinumGames' MadWorld, a stylishly-violent hack and slash game released on the Wii in 2009. He would later go on to play Sazh Katzroy, a loving single father and major character in the Final Fantasy XIII series. He also voiced several characters in the 2011 MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. Wilson memorably portrayed Killer B, a powerful ninja with a penchant for rapping at his opponents in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, a 2010 fighting game which featured several playable characters from across the popular Naruto anime franchise.

Wilson's voice was also featured in Michael Bay's Transformers movie franchise, where he portrayed several different Autobots and Decepticons over multiple entries.
