All-star voice cast announced for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda Softworks has revealed that a host of critically acclaimed acting legends will be lending their vocal talents to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Oscar-nominated luminaries such as Christopher Plummer, Max Von Sydow and Joan Allen will all make appearances in the eagerly awaited fantasy role-playing epic, which hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC later this year.

Plummer will feature in the role of the powerful Greybeard elder Arngeir and Von Sydow will portray the player's mentor Esbern, while Allen will make her videogame acting debut as Delphine, a member of an ancient warrior sect.

Other members of the all-star cast include the likes of Michael Hogan of Battlestar Galactica fame, Claudia Christian from Babylon 5 and Lynda Carter, best known as TV's Wonder Woman.

Todd Howard, Skyrim's director, said: 'When you start a project, you always make your wish-list of actors, and to actually hear them in the game, it's amazing.'

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be launched in November and will receive a special Collector's Edition release that includes an artbook, a making-of DVD and a statue of the mighty dragon Alduin.
