FF13's 'Hope Estheim' Voice Actor Revealed

A young American Actor has added Final Fantasy XIII to the portfolio on his website, revealing that he is playing the role of Hope Estheim in the game.

Vincent Martella has been in US TV shows such as "Everybody Hates Chris" and is also the voice of Phineas in Disney's "Phineas & Ferb."

He will be taking on the role of Hope Estheim in the game who is the youngest member of the playable cast at a tender 14 years old.

He better be a good voice actor *looks at age* 14 yrs. old great another squeeky annoying character.

Blaze9293305d ago (Edited 3305d ago )

actually know. If you actually watching Everybody Hates Chris you would know that he does NOT have a "squeaky" voice, in fact far from it and he's actually a good actor and was hilarious in the show.

If the show doesn't come on in your region then my mistake, i dunno where you are from.

Shouldn't be too bad at all and he has experience at doing dubs as he does it for one of his show's on Disney:


That's why i don't get why people complain about the english dubs for Square games sometimes, they always choose good actors and it comes out great. Final Fantasy X was great, FF7 Crisis Core was great, both Kingdom Hearts were great and it continues. At least in my opinion.

the english voices are just gonna be ass

i have a feeling they will be just meh =| at best

IT's pretty funny.
Japanese people enjoy English dubs and Japanese subs.
English speakers enjoy Japanese voices with English subs.

Little do you people realize you only prefer because you CANT understand the language.

English and Japanese always have quality voice actors.
Until you speak the Language, You can NOT judge the quality of the voices.

Eventually you will get used to it, or not, but you know how that saying goes, "Beggars can't be choosers".

As Blaze has said, he does not have a squeaky voice, and you can tell that in the recent trailer anyway.

EDIT: Btw, he is almost 17.

Now THAT is more interesting than this story.
The kids voice isn't squeaky but it IS nasal-y

The english voice acting is terrible enough as it is (seriously, just go listen to it in recent trailers). It's just another sign that this game will flop (especially in America).

imo the voices in japanese is much better than this.

in blu-ray have this option of japan voices...

Nitrowolf23305d ago

idk about you but i like my voice actor to be unkown, not someone whos known on a show. It seems weird to me. but of course i like to here japanes voices instead of american dubs

Loxhart3305d ago (Edited 3305d ago )

Provided you know Japanese?

I find them to be generic(no offence) and squeaky, especially Vanilles Japanese voice, if you've heard it.

Ps_alm3k3305d ago (Edited 3305d ago )

Phineas and ferb and his voice is anoying!

Okay, i hope he doesn't use that voices, thats all.
