I just had to share this.

I'm sure we all love the voice acting that made Jon Irenicus come alive. The man behind the voice is David Warner, an actor who has had minor roles in movies such as Titanic and series such as Twin Peaks, but I haven't seen him in anything for quite som time.

Untill now. Starring in HBOs Penny Dreadful, a fantastic show mixing all sorts of horror stories, he plays the aged and vizened Prof. Van Helsing. A character that has been hurt almost as much as Jon Irenicus.

The result is just fantastic. The quality of HBO combined with the voice and acting of David Warner (not to mention Eva Green and Timothy Dalton) is just spectaculat.

Check it out (and No, i'm not payed by HBO although it may seem like it. I'm just a huge fan of Jon Irenicus)

It's a Showtime tv show, not HBO. :)

David Warner reprises his role as Jon Irenicus in the new BG EE: Siege of Dragonspear. He appears merely as a mysterious "hooded figure". But there is no mistaking who it is. Also he voiced one of the new optional male voices for your character. Check out the one titled "commanding male"
