Resident Evil 2 voice actor Alyson Court has uploaded a new video discussing her absence in the Resident Evil 2 remake.
Yesterday, Court confirmed she will not be voicing Claire Redfield in the remake as the project is opting to use non-union voice actors instead. SAG-AFTRA members are currently on strike over working conditions; the strike also means Life is Strange‘s Ashly Burch won’t be reprising her role in Before the Storm.
“I really thought Capcom was listening to the fans for this one,” she lamented. “I thought the whole point of remaking RE2 was to do something — finally — especially for you guys.
“It’s one thing to make a decision to replace me for a creative choice,” Court continued. “But if the only reason they chose to replace me is because they want to non-union, it’s petty, it’s disrespectful… to me… to the other performance artists out there, whether it’s full-capture, motion-capture, voice performers — everybody deserves a proper wage for what they’re doing.
“Most importantly, it’s disrespectful to you guys. I hope something changes with this, and I hope you get what you want.”
Though she’s launched this new tirade at Capcom, Court said on Twitter that believes the fault begins with the LA firm in charge of western localisation.
We’ll keep you informed as we learn more about this situation.
Would you prefer Court as the voice of Claire in the remake?
