As you may have seen on my social media accounts, I’ve been working really hard to keep a secret which I can now tell!
A few months ago I was invited to come on board on an audio drama by Big Finish. I have wanted to work with Big Finish for a while as I’ve listened to and enjoyed a few of their Doctor Who audio dramas. This was on the second Pathfinder Legends series instead.
I’m not at all denying being a big geek about certain things and although I have played a few RPGs before, I was not familiar with Pathfinder at all. Being a geek though, I did recognise how important my research would be. So I made some enquiries and made sure I knew as much as I could about who I was playing.
I would be playing Velriana Hypaxes, described to me as having a “ruthless streak” (how on earth could I resist!?!?) who can be seen on the front cover of The Half-Dead City (above), the first episode of the second series, Mummy’s Mask. I also played a number of other characters including a half-orc called Naghut, who I was asked to reprise in the second episode Empty Graves.
I had such a fun time recording the two episodes with alongside a lovely producer/director, wonderful cast and brilliantly patient sound team. I haven’t heard much of the final plays so I’m really excited to hear the finished product and hope I have done the characters justice!
