Shulk voice actor discusses his role, teases new project

A portion of a Nintendo Life interview with Adam Howden, voice of Shulk in Xenoblade Chronicles...

NL: How did you begin your role as Shulk in Xenoblade Chronicles? Did you audition for the part or were you approached?

AH: Yeah I had to audition for Shulk. I wasn't told too much information, just given some dialogue from the opening of the game to prep and told that he should seem quite young and innocent to begin with but that he will develop into a man and leader as his journey plays out. I usually have to audition for significant parts in games. There have only been a couple of occasions where I've been lucky enough to just be given a part without an audition.

NL: Are you interested in doing any more game voice roles in future? Are you working on anything at the moment?

AH: I'm always interested in doing more voice work on games. They're great fun & the games industry has been very kind to me. I have been working on a new game recently. I can't say what it is yet but I was very pleased to see it trending on Twitter when it was announced. It's very satisfying to know there's a buzz and anticipation for a project you're involved in. Aside from games, I've been working on television and film projects which will be released this year.

He also voiced Tintin in the latest movie (says in the article, but most people don't read it). My brother got his signature at London's comicon last year, said he seemed a really nice guy.

And I thought he voiced both characters really well, looking forward to hearing more about future roles of his!

Could easily be Dragon Age III. However Xenoblade 2 as well as SSB4 aren't out of the question.
