METAL GEAR SOLID.NET

For all you need to know about the Metal Gear series!

The voice actors behind the characters we know and love so much!

I've decided to decicate a page to the voice actors (sorry, English only!) for the Metal Gear Solid games since they're ultimately the people who provide voices for the characters we know so well now. There's been some fantastic work from a variety of voice actors and here I will attempt to find a photo, name the character(s) they provided a voice for in MGS, and give a couple of examples of where you might have heard their voice before. I will also, where possible, link to their site and/or provide contact details. The two actors I have made contact with, Cam Clarke (Liquid Snake) and Neil Ross (Volgin) have been incredibly friendly and got back to me with responses and signed photos. Why not try making contact with your favourite "characters"?
