Iconic characters of video games are often associated with the voice actors performing them, and North Nolan’Nathan Drake’s performance in the Uncharted franchise is possibly one of the strongest. North has voiced the character since the first game in 2007, and Drake’s trademark irony is as much a product of North’s signature performance as great series of articles. And it became the star of Not detected yet movieTom Holland thinks so too.
Tell Polygon, Not detected yet Director Ruben Fleischer explained how important North’s performance was to the film, how the voice actor inspired the Dutch, and what it was like to have the original Nathan Drake on set.
“Tom, as a huge fan of the game, was really trying to harness the spirit of Nathan Drake that Nolan was responsible for,” says Fleischer. “At the same time, he’s not trying to impress Nolan North. He wanted to make the character his own.”
For Fleischer, one of the things that makes Uncharted games special is the way they combine globe trotting and treasure hunting with sarcasm and banter. He likens it to the action-adventure genre that he says has mostly disappeared in the past few years, like But the pirate of the Caribbean or National Treasure. But while those films served as inspiration, it was North who provided the blueprints for the comedy.
“He is an amazing improviser. He has great instincts,” says Fleischer. “Having Nolan on set was an incredible experience because he was so generous and excited about this version of the character and the way the story was told.”
Thanks a North’s photo posted on TwitterFans soon learned that North spent some time on set Not detected yet with the Netherlands. But it turns out that this time is more important and meaningful than just a short time.
“He and Tom have a great relationship and filming together was fun. It was a very memorable day in the south of Spain,” said Fleischer. “I think there was a kind of torch-like feeling going through. When watching the two together […] feels like Nolan worked on the character for the video game version […] and Tom will be responsible for the movie adaptation of the character. “
