Actor Sir Ben Kingsley is in Fable III

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.
