To The Point - Christopher Sean
An interview with the voice actor behind Gotham Knights' Nightwing.
In this edition of To The Point we’re visiting Gotham City to chat with Christopher Sean, the voice and personality behind crime fighting vigilante Nightwing (Dick Grayson) from Gotham Knights. Christopher Sean is a Japanese-American actor that in addition to his screen acting roles, has voiced characters from a multitude of video games including Arokkeh in Horizon Forbidden West, Doctor Bernard in the Fallout 76 Wastelanders DLC and various other roles from Marvel’s Avengers to Ghost of Tsushima.
Gotham Knights is one of 2022’s most anticipated video games starring Nightwing, Red Hood, Batgirl and Robin as they try to defend Gotham City after the death of Batman. We’re extremely excited to play Gotham Knights when it releases on October 21st but even more excited to bring you what Christopher Sean had to say.
What inspired you to take on voice acting roles in video games such as Fallout 76, Ghost of Tsushima, Marvel’s Avengers, Horizon Forbidden West and most recently, Gotham Knights?
I’ve always loved doing impressions of cartoons and anime I grew up with so I was naturally drawn to the opportunity when it was presented to be a voice actor. Each day on set there was always new lessons to [be] learned.
How did you prepare to play the part of Dick Grayson (Nightwing) in Gotham Knights and what are you most proud of about your performance?
Gotham Knights is an amazing IP with so much to offer the gaming world. I’m thrilled to know it’s releasing so soon! 10.21.22. Yeah that soon. I can’t say much else about the role, but being a Japanese-American and portraying one of DC’s coolest superheroes is truly an honor and a dream come true.
Does voice acting allow you to inject more of your personality into the characters than screen acting? Do you share any personality traits with Nightwing?
I have to say yes to this. Just from my experiences, I interject a lot of my humor and personality and life experiences into each of my roles. I mean, just the other day I saved the world from Mr. Freeze and Harley Quin… so yeah, I’d say that my life imitates art, in many ways.
