Many voice actors are sworn to all sorts of secrecy when it comes to their projects. Some know what they’re working on, but sign lengthy NDAs that block them from discussion. Others record a few lines without knowing the project, but learn about the specifics throughout the recording process. In the case of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, one key player had no clue what he was recording until the entire process was complete.

In an interview with Games Industry, Sepehr Torabi, the owner/operator of Persian Dub Group, said that his work on Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown was done in total secret. When the project came across his desk, he was asked to provide multiple voices for something called “The Iranian Prince,” which made Torabi slightly suspicious. It wasn’t until the project’s end that Torabi learned he had indeed worked on a Prince of Persia title.

“Even when I asked them to take a look at the script before recording, they didn’t allow it. I was incredibly happy when I learned that I was going to work on the Lost Crown. Honestly, I was going through some troubling days, and I wasn’t sure if I had the time to commit to this project. I even considered not doing it, but I’m very glad I did. I’m sure I would have regretted it for the rest of my life. It felt like a fever dream. I wasn’t sure it was the official dub of the game either until the recent trailers from Ubisoft showed our work.”
