Nolan Ramsey North (born October 31, 1970 in New Haven, Connecticut) is an actor and voice actor from Connecticut. Although he's been in the business for a while, it wasn't until his post-Uncharted roles that he started to gain prominence due to his rather distinctive voice. Most of the characters he voices are average people who find themselves in really bad situations, and cope with them using a good heaping of sarcasm, but he's racked up quite a few Crazy Awesome flamboyant villains, as well.

He does have range, but he's still usually asked to do the "Drake" voice. In Singularity, this is actually used to throw the player off, whereas his role in Spec Ops: The Line deconstructs it.

From the inception of the award, to its resigning North swept Giantbomb's "Northies".

He seems to be Marvel's go-to guy for voicing Deadpool. He's one of two alliteration-named actors to play both Green Lantern and Deadpool, the other being Ryan Reynolds.


On Thursdays, North co-hosts Retro Replay, a retro-gaming channel, with fellow voice actor Troy Baker.
