Zelda’s Breath Of The Wild Voice Actress Gives Her Thoughts On The Character

Princess Zelda is undeniably a very important character in the Legend of Zelda series, so casting her first voice actress was a huge task. However, it seems like the actress they picked has an excellent grasp of the character in Breath of the Wild. In an interview with Game Rant, Patricia Summersett discussed her inspiration when voicing the Hylian Princess and what she thinks about the character. Check out the full interview here.

Where did you draw your inspiration from when auditioning for the role of Zelda?

“Well, when I auditioned for the role I didn’t know what I was auditioning for, so I was more going with the themes of the kind of cadence that they were looking for. You know, an interpretation of. When I first came in with my initial ideas. I had a feeling it was a princess, she was younger but had the weight of the world on her shoulders, and had a kind of timeless/ageless quality where age was not necessarily equivalent to the age on paper. And, yeah, that she had a sort of regal sense to her. That’s kind of what I picked up from the breakdown of it. So, that’s what I initially went with. Once I found out that I got the part, which was quite further down in the process, we started recording. I think a lot of the decision have been made about what the direction would be anyway, so it was a negotiation between, I guess, my sensibilities and that of Nintendo’s vision.”
