Portkey Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced the full voice cast for Hogwarts Legacy, following yesterday’s confirmation that Simon Pegg will be playing Phineas Nigellus Black.
Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black (voiced by Simon Pegg) – Simon Pegg plays Phineas Nigellus Black, the cantankerous Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. From a long lineage of Slytherins, Headmaster Black is hated by the students, of whom he also has a great disdain for. Wildly ill-suited to his job, his goal is to do the least amount of work possible and avoid exposure to the student body—preferring to focus on his status in the wizarding world and his surgically manicured beard.
Playable Avatar (voiced by Sebastian Croft / Amelia Gething) – As fifth-year students entering Hogwarts for the first time, Sebastian Croft and Amelia Gething play the two voice options for the game’s playable avatar, which can be highly customized, enabling players to choose the witch or wizard they want to be.
Professor Matilda Weasley (voiced by Lesley Nicol) – Lesley Nicol voices a key character in the game, Professor Matilda Weasley. A Gryffindor, she is the Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts who aids the player in catching up with the other students by giving them the Wizard’s Field Guide and showing them the Room of Requirement.
Professor Onai (voiced by Kandace Caine) – Kandace Caine plays Professor Onai who was once a Divination teacher at Uagadou, the largest wizarding school in the world, and a gifted Seer whose faith in her sight was shaken by the fact that she did not foresee the loss of her husband. Deciding to leave those painful memories behind, she accepts an invitation by Professor Weasley to teach Divination at Hogwarts.
Professor Satyavati Shah (voiced by Sohm Kapila) – The professor of Astronomy, Professor Satyavati Shah, is voiced by Sohm Kapila. Raised in the Muggle world, Professor Shah is devoted to the sciences and tends to talk down to her students in winding and pretentious aphorisms.
Everett Clopton (voiced by Luke Youngblood) – Longtime franchise fans will be thrilled to recognize Luke Youngblood, who played Lee Jordan in the film series as he returns to provide the voice of Everett Clopton, a Ravenclaw and a half-blood underachieving rule-breaker and prankster.
Amit Thakkar (voiced by Asif Ali) – Asif Ali voices another Ravenclaw student, Amit Thakkar, a bright and well-read student who would leap at the chance to help a friend in need, though, once in the thick of things, often realizes he might be better off reading about certain adventures than experiencing them.
Mahendra Pehlwaan (voiced by Adam O’Connor) – Adam O’Connor voices Mahendra Pehlwaan, a muggle born Ravenclaw student and an avid rule-keeper, whose aggressive adherence to rules and guidelines even the professors have grown a bit weary of!
Nearly Headless Nick (voiced by Jason Anthony) – Nearly Headless Nick, the Gryffindor house ghost, also known as Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, is friendly and entertaining, if a bit pompous. He may be the key to helping the Gryffindor player find answers crucial to solving a significant mystery—if they are willing to do him one small favor involving a bit of rotten roast beef!
Sorting Hat (voiced by Jason Anthony) – The iconic Sorting Hat, a sentient, magical hat, uses knowledge from the student’s past along with input from the player to determine which Hogwarts house will be the right fit.
Hogwarts Legacy is due out on February 10, 2023 for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S.
