Overwatch voice stars Lucie Pohl and Gaku Space are the latest additions to MCM London Comic Con’s guestlist. Pohl and Space – who play Mercy and Genji in Blizzard’s hit team-based FPS – will be joining what’s shaping up to be the show’s strongest-ever voice actor line-up, with the likes of Kevin Conroy, David Hayter, Jim Cummings, James Arnold Taylor, Tara Sands, Taylor Gray and the stars of GTA V already on the roster.
German-American actor and stand-up Lucie Pohl (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Red Dwarf) plays Overwatch’s resident guardian angel Mercy. A peerless healer, Swiss scientist Mercy – real name Angela Ziegler – is a staunch advocate for peace. However, when the going gets tough and innocents are imperilled, the angelic doctor can be counted on to don her Valkyrie swift-response suit and jump into the action.
Tokyo-born Gaku Space (Westworld, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist) stalks Blizzard’s battlefields as shuriken-shooting cyborg Genji. The younger sibling of Overwatch hero Hanzo, Genji grew up the spoiled son of the Shimada ninja clan and was almost killed by his brother when he refused to abandon his playboy ways. Transformed into a cyborg by the Overwatch organisation, Genji is now a living weapon possessing superlative mobility and combat skills.
MCM London Comic Con takes place on 25-27 May. Tickets to the show are available here.
