How…royal! Actor Sir Ben Kingsley has confirmed that he’s part of Lionhead’s Fable III cast, joining other Brit celebs in this year’s release.
Kingsley told CVG: “I’m a voice in a new video game shortly – Fable III. I’m a wonderful wizard character who is the king of Mist Peak.”
Kingsley is getting around games, isn’t he. He’ll also star in a game movie, this month’s Prince of Persia film.
“It’s very energising and good for us actors to realise that [acting] is so diverse now,” the actor tells CVG. “[Games] are as big a jump now as I suppose when cinema was invented, when people went from the stage to the cinema thinking: It’s not really acting, is it? Now, it’s video games – and it is acting. It’s very demanding.”
We’ll get to see and hear Ben Kingsley’s work when Fable III is shown off during E3 this summer.
