    ROTTR Voice Actor Interviews!

    Happy Friday all!

    Two of the talented voice actors in Rise of the Tomb Raider have agreed to do a community interview with us - Philip Anthony-Rodriguez (Jacob) and Earl Baylon (Jonah).

    Have a question? Ask below! Be sure to indicate if your question is directed at Philip, Earl, or both.

    Questions are open until March 4, at which time we'll send them off for answering.

    Thanks!

    Well, I have a question for Earl: How do you grasp Jonah's feeling toward Lara? He was already an extremely loyal friend to start with, and after being through hell with her twice, I imagine him must have developed some feeling for her?

    to Earl:
    Did you sometimes wish you could have a bigger role in Rise or even for the next title?

    Love seeing the Q and A's back.


    To Earl:
    Lara has always been very independent on her adventures and it seems quite refreshing for Lara to have a capable friend to join her so do you see the potential for a long term adventuring partnership between Jonah and Lara?

    Questions for Earl:

    * With a whole new character development for Lara in the series re-imagining, what influence do you think Jonah has on Lara, and what influence does Lara have on Jonah?

    * What's the funniest outtake in recording your lines with Camilla?

    Philip - How was getting into the role of Jacob?
    Earl - Would you like to play Jonah again in future Tomb Raider games?

    Metalrocks, you may wish to spoiler tag those questions as there are lots of PS4 players around here including myself that don't know how the story goes yet.

    My question to both: What was your inspiration behind how you played the character?


    @Robin If there is less questions is not because the fanbase less interested just a really large section of us havn't played ROTTR yet.

    To Philip and Earl: have you played any of the previous Tomb Raider games?

    To Earl: hopefully Jonah will appear in the next game. If so, where would you like Lara and Jonah to visit?

    Noted! Just wanted to give people an extra opportunity to post before we submitted the questions over.

    Hi everyone! Time to re-open this thread because we received our first batch of answers from Philip Anthony-Rodriguez aka the voice of Jacob in Rise of the Tomb Raider! These were compiled from posts on both this thread and a sister thread on theTomb Raider forums. Earl's will be coming at a later date.

    Without further ado, below are Philip's answers! Please be sure to post your thanks to him for taking the time to post answers and give him a follow on his channels if you'd like to see more of his work!

    Thanks Earl (and Meagan for putting it together). It's always cool to read what goes on in a person's head when they're trying to be someone else.
