Every Hogwarts Legacy voice actor
Simon Pegg – Phineas Nigellus Black
One of the biggest names set to appear in Hogwarts Legacy is Simon Pegg, who portrays Phineas Nigellus Black. Phineas is the great-grandfather of Sirius Black, played by Gary Oldman in the live-action Harry Potter film, and is the school’s headmaster when the player begins their journey.
Pegg is best known for his work on the Cornetto Trilogy alongside Nick Frost, comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End. He has since had major roles in the Mission Impossible series as well as latter-day Star Trek movies.
Lesley Nicol – Professor Matilda Weasley
Another popular family is set to feature on the Hogwarts staff, as the Deputy Headmistress of the school is Professor Matilda Weasley.
Ron’s ancestor will be voiced by Lesley Nicol, who you might recognize from her work on Downton Abbey and Amazon Prime’s The Boys. She has also lent her voice to a number of children’s TV shows, including Sarah & Duck.
Asif Ali – Amit Thakkar
The talent doesn’t stop with the teachers, though, as Asif Ali is set to play Amit Thakkar, a Ravenclaw student whom players will meet during the story. He is described as a kind and smart wizard who will lend the protagonist a helping hand.
Ali has had roles in Disney Plus shows WandaVision and The Mandolorian, as Norm and Caben respectively. He’s also contributed voice work to critically-acclaimed animated shows like BoJack Horseman.
Kandace Caine – Professor Onai
Another teacher players will become acquainted with is Professor Onai, who leads the Divination class at Hogwarts during this time period. She is also the mother of Gryffindor student Natsai Onai.
The professor is voiced by Kandace Caine, making her return to video games after voicing Nova in Modern Warfare 2 2022. Horror fans may also recall her as Karrie in The Human Centipede 2.
Sohm Kapila – Professor Satyavati Shah
The final teacher confirmed in Hogwarts Legacy is astrology Professor Satyavati Shah, played by Indian actress Sohm Kapila.
Kapila is making her video game debut after landing minor roles in a number of popular shows, including Waking the Dead, Charmed, and NCIS: Los Angeles.
Luke Youngblood – Everett Clopton
Joining the list of new characters is Everett Clopton, a bully, and prankster found in House Ravenclaw. However, this isn’t voice actor Luke Youngblood’s first visit to Hogwarts.
The British actor appeared in the first two Harry Potter movies as Lee Jordan, a fellow student and friend to Fred and George Weasley. He has since landed successful parts as Magnitude in Community and Sugo in The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
Jason Anthony – Nearly Headless Nick / The Sorting Hat
Doing the honors of voicing not one but two fan-favorite characters is Jason Anthony, who plays both the sentient Sorting Hat and Gryffindor house ghost Nearly Headless Nick.
In a career spanning over two decades, Anthony has been involved in some of the biggest franchises around, from Otter in Modern Warfare to Admiral Ozzel in Lego Star Wars. He also appeared as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
Sebastian Croft – Player Voice 1
Hogwarts Legacy lets players customize their own character, all the way down to the voice. There are two distinct voice options to choose from, the first of which comes from rising star Sebastian Croft.
He is probably best known for his appearance as a young Ned Stark in season six of HBO’s Game of Thrones. However, he has gone on to feature in the likes of Penny Dreadful, Love, Death & Robots, and Doom Patrol.
Amelia Gething – Player Voice 2
The second voice option is provided by Amelia Gething, a relative newcomer who has already made quite an impression on our screens.
She wrote and starred in The Amelia Gething Complex sketch show, before playing Anne Bronte in the biographical drama, Emily, which earned a nomination for Best Ensemble Performance at the British Independent Film Awards.
