Heroic-Fantasy and video games, a love story that has lasted for years. The Witcher of course, but also The Elder Scrolls, Baldur’s gate, Dragon Age… many cult RPGs have drawn their inspiration from fantasy. Still popular today, the genre is found on all media, and this opportunity particularly appeals to Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones, The Witcher). As The Elder Scrolls VI slowly approaches, we asked the Norwegian actor if he’d like to take a foray into the next big RPG from Bethesda Softworks:
How would you like to play a character in The Elder Scrolls VI?
Yes, I would like that. It’s a new era for actors. The job is to find yourself in a game where people can control you. – Kristofer Hivju (actor – Nivellen)
It is true that the border between cinema and video games is very fine. More and more video game blockbusters employ stars to embody their protagonists. Christopher Judge as Kratos in God of War, but also the crazy cast of Death Stranding who offers the services of Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux, Mads Mikkelsen, Margaret Qualley, Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn to name but a few. them. The audiovisual world merges more and more with that of video games, and offers new challenges to actors. So let’s hope that Kristofer Hivju is heard by Bethesda Softworks and its teams, and we could maybe find him in the next episode of The Elder Scrolls saga.
The Elder Scrolls VI will be released on an undisclosed date.
