Actress Jennifer Hale Shares How Science Influenced Her on Mass Effect, Bioshock, and More

Nerdist: Video games are my escape. I love dense universes packed with characters I care about and premises I can get behind. Being the science geek that I am, I squee with enjoyment when a game is built on the foundation of something plausible and runs with it, like the post-apocalyptic masterpiece The Last of Us or the space opera trilogy Mass Effect. It turns out that the people who make those sciencey games can be just as big of nerds as we can!

Recently, I was fortunate enough to speak with the very talented actress Jennifer Hale, “the most prolific female video game voice actor,” about how curiosity and a love of learning drew her to her notable science fiction roles. Hale is famously the voice of the female Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect trilogy (FemShep forever!), quantum physicist Rosalind Lutece in Bioshock Infinite, and dozens of other video game characters. What follows is our conversation about how she was drawn to these roles and how an enthusiasm for science informs her work (lightly edited for length and clarity).
