Destiny 2 new voice of Ikora is now Mara Junot

Just like Nathan Fillion before her, it's time to say goodbye to Gina Torres.

Destiny 2 has a new voice of Ikora, with voice actor Mara Junot taking over the character once voiced by Firefly’s Gina Torres.

Junot is no stranger to video game voice acting, providing her talents to games including World of Warcraft Shadowlands, The Outer Worlds, Diablo Immortal, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and more.

The actor celebrated her new booking by taking to Twitter with a quote from Ikora, later confirmig to GameInformer that she’s now voicing the character.

This change of actor isn’t new to the Destiny franchise. Nathan Fillion, also of Firefly, was the voice of Cayde-6 before being replaced by Nolan North (and then written out of the game entirely).

What do you make of Torres’ absense?

Destiny 2 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia. It’s also on Xbox Game Pass.
