Get to know the voice actors who lend their voices to the characters in Bethesda's science fiction role-playing game Starfield, including Emily O'Brien, Elias Toufexis, Carlos Valdes, Armin Shimerman, Cissy Jones, Jake Green, Dana Gourrier, Barry Wiggins, Bumper Robinson, and Craig Sechler.
These talented actors have portrayed various characters in popular television series, movies, and video games such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Trek: Discovery, The Young and the Restless, Life is Strange, and Transformers.
From seasoned soap opera actors to BAFTA-winning actresses, the cast of Starfield brings their expertise and talent into the game, delivering a captivating and immersive gaming experience.
Bethesda's first science fiction role-playing game, Starfield, has launched on Xbox consoles worldwide. However, before you dive right in and explore the infinite star systems that the universe has to offer, you might be interested to know which voice actors bring life to the characters you'll primarily encounter in Team Constellation.
Constellation is an organization of passionate space explorers dedicated to unraveling some of the universe's greatest mysteries, and you are their newest member. These characters will accompany you during most of the main quests. Here you will find additional information about the actors who portray them.
1 Sarah Morgan - Emily O'Brien
Sarah Morgan, the leader of Constellation in this space opera, is voiced by the seasoned soap opera actress, Emily O'Brien. Emily has been a prominent figure in the series The Young and the Restless, portraying the character of Jana Fisher, and later appearing in Days of Our Lives as Gwen Rizczech. She is no stranger to the galaxies either, as she portrayed Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy series by Telltale.
However, Sarah Morgan and Gamora are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to video game characters to whom Emily O'Brien has lent her voice. Emily has also excelled as Amelie in Death Stranding, as Scarlet Witch in Marvel's Midnight Suns, as Mary-Ann in Tell Me Why, and as Sandy in Exoprimal. Her DC roles include Talia al Ghul in Gotham Knights, which she also reprised in The Doom that Came to Gotham, as well as Renee Chandler in Constantine: City of Demons.
2 Sam Coe - Elias Toufexis
Elias Toufexis is also an actor who has been venturing into space long before Starfield, appearing in series such as Star Trek: Discovery as L'ak and The Expanse as Kenzo. Here in Starfield, he portrays the former Freestar Ranger and space cowboy Sam Coe, whose name is associated with the founder of Akila City. Previously, he had already played the role of Oswald Cobblepot alongside Emily O'Brien in Gotham Knights.
Additional notable roles in animated series and games for Elias include the villain Seraphim in Netflix's Blood of Zeus, Vince Walker in As Dusk Falls, the cowboy-hat-wearing Louie J. Garner in Back 4 Blood, Prometheus in Immortals Fenyx Rising, and most significantly, the protagonist Adam Jensen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Mankind Divided.
3 Matteo Khatri - Carlos Valdes
Matteo Khatri, a member of Constellation, is a theological character who is dedicated to studying relics found in space in order to uncover their deeper secrets. His scientific and philosophical enthusiasm aligns perfectly with his voice actor, Carlos Valdes, whom you may recognize as Cisco Ramon in the CW's Arrowverse or as the scientific genius and primary namer of metahumans in Team Flash.
When he's not busy assisting Flash at Star Labs or taking down the metahumans of Central City as Vibe, you can catch Carlos Valdes in series like Gaslit on Starz and Up Here on Hulu. Although Starfield marks his first video game where he lends his voice, Valdes has also voiced his character Cisco Ramon in Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
4 Walter Stroud - Armin Shimerman
In the universe of Starfield, Walter Stroud may be the wealthy financier of Constellation, owing to his stake in Stroud Eklund Corporation. However, in another universe, he is the founder of Ryan Industries and the dystopian visionary behind the underwater city of Rapture in BioShock – Andrew Ryan. That's right, Armin Shimerman once again shines as an industrial magnate in the science fiction genre.
Further notable video game roles of Shimerman include Dr. Nefarious in the Ratchet & Clank series, Augustus Aquato in Psychonauts 2, and various characters in the Mass Effect series. And if you're a Trekkie, you will recognize Armin Shimerman as none other than Quark in Deep Space Nine, The Next Generation, and the video game Star Trek Online.
5 Andreja - Cissy Jones
Andreja is another companion of Constellation that you can recruit during your interstellar journey in Starfield. This character is voiced by the BAFTA-winning actress Cissy Jones, who has been involved in numerous narrative-driven games. Her most memorable roles include Joyce Price in Life is Strange and Henry's supervisor in the fire lookout tower, Delilah, in Firewatch (for which she received the BAFTA award).
More recently, you can hear Cissy Jones as one of the voices of the female protagonist in Remnant 2, as Sarah Sheppard in Dead Island 2, Annie Knowby in Evil Dead: The Game, and as the voice of The Absolute in Baldur's Gate 3. And if you've played Telltale's The Walking Dead, she has voiced multiple characters throughout the seasons, including Shel, Katjaa, and Jolene.
6 Vasco - Jake Green
No space game is complete without a robot companion, and that's why Starfield offers you Vasco, a robot that can greet you by the name of your character and exhibits a strong personality. Vasco becomes an integral part of the experience, much like TARS in Interstellar and Claptrap in Borderlands. The actor Jake Green portrays this member of Constellation.
Jake Green has already lent his voice to Marvel, Star Wars, and DC projects. These include Eddie Brock in Midnight Suns, Dr. Ivo in My Adventures with Superman, and Poe Dameron in various Lego Star Wars specials. Although his live-action roles are usually minor, you may have seen Jake in Netflix's Dahmer or ABC's The Catch. Other characters he has portrayed include Olaf in Disney Dreamlight Valley and Bloodbag Chuck in Redfall.
7 Noel - Dana Gourrier
Dana Gourrier is an actress who has appeared in many television series, such as True Detective, Raising Dion, Interview with the Vampire, and P-Valley. She has also collaborated with writer/director Quentin Tarantino on his films Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, where she played the role of Cora in the former and the role of establishment owner Minnie Mink in the latter.
In addition to her role as Constellation scientist Noel in Starfield, Gourrier was previously seen in another science fiction game. You might recognize her as Rose from Quantic Dream's branching narrative about androids in Detroit: Become Human.
8 Barrett - Barry Wiggins
Barry Wiggins may be known to some as a lesser-known actor, but he is the voice behind the character who recruits you to join the Constellation, Barrett. Although this may be the actor's first significant video game role, he has provided additional voices for Mafia 3 and portrayed Papa Bear in the animated television series Goldie and Bear.
Wiggins' career in Hollywood includes a variety of guest roles in popular TV series. Some of these would include Spin City, Sister, Sister, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, O.C., California, Extant, the original Roswell, as well as Star Trek: Voyager and Deep Space Nine.
9 Vladimir Sall - Bumper Robinson
This former space pirate of the Crimson Fleet, who is now part of the Constellation in Starfield, is voiced by Bumper Robinson. He was seen in 90s sitcoms such as Family Matters, A Different World, and Living Single, and later played the role of Juvon in the sports comedy-drama series The Game on BET.
But you're probably more familiar with some of Robinson's voice acting roles. His most well-known roles include portraying DC superhero Cyborg in many Lego games and animated films, such as Justice League: Doom from 2012, as Ben Tennyson's ally Rook Blonko in Ben 10: Omniverse, and as Optimus Prime's ally Bumblebee in Transformers: Animated. He also voiced Falcon in Avengers Assemble as well as in numerous video games.
10 Adoring Fan - Craig Sechler
As revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase at the expo, the beloved elf character from the game Oblivion makes a reappearance in Starfield. Bethesda allows you once again to have this whimsical character as part of your crew, and Craig Sechler returns as the voice actor.
Craig Sechler has a rich history of working on Bethesda games and their respective expansions. He has lent his voice to numerous characters in Fallout 3, Skyrim, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Additionally, he has lent his voice to the documentary series "Drain the Oceans: Deep Dive" and "The Pacific War in Color." He also portrayed Governor Connally in the 2016 biographical film "Jackie."
