Gunner Wright As Isaac Clarke

First off, we have Gunner Wright returning as the voice of Isaac Clarke. He started lending his voice to the iconic survival horror character back in Dead Space 2 and, since then, has become loved by the fanbase.

Gunner Wright has played various roles in plenty of movies. For most people, his most memorable role is Isaac. He is absolutely the most needed and appreciated out of all the Dead Space Remake voice actors. Fans are more than happy to have him back, and he is happy to be here. 

Tanya Clarke As Nicole Brennan

Next, we have Tanya Clarke who will be replacing Iyari Limon as the voice of Nicole Brennan. Nicole is Isaac’s wife and the main reason why he has come to USG Ishimura to investigate. Isaac has been very stressed and unweary due to the predicament his wife has found herself in. 

There are many awesome scenes featuring Nicole in the original game. We are certain that Tanya Clarke will be an excellent replacement as she has been a part of many films and shows. The most memorable thing that Nicole says in the game is her line where she asks Isaac to make them whole again

Brigitte Kali Canales As Kendra Daniels

Other than Isaac, two characters take up most of the spotlight during the game’s main story. One of them is Kendra Daniels and the other is Zach Hammond. Kendra comforts Isaac when he is worried about his wife at the start of the game and regularly communicates with him as the game goes on.

Kendra Daniels was originally voiced by Tonantzin Carmelo, who Brigitte Kali Canales is now replacing. Brigitte has nailed her role, as we have not seen fans complain about the little screen time they have seen of Kendra in the remake thus far. 

Anthony Alabi As Zach Hammond

Zach Hammond is probably going to be your favorite character in Dead Space 1. He tries his very best to help everybody make it out of the USG Ishimura safe and sound. His interactions with Isaac will now sound better because Isaac will actually talk back. 

Similar to Kendra Daniels, Zach Hammond’s voice actor was also recast. He was originally voiced by Peter Mensah, who will now be replaced by Anthony Alabi. Fans don’t need to worry as he is an actor with a lot of experience who has given a tense and satisfying new voice to Zach. 

Faran Tahir As Challus Mercer

Lastly, we have Farah Tahir as Challus Mercer. Just like the rest of the cast, the actor for Challus Mercer has been recast. He was originally voiced by Navid Negahban. Replacing him is the popular Pakistani-American actor Faran Tahir. Challus is a complicated character who has gone insane due to what’s going on.

He strongly believes that turning into a Necromorph is a big part of human evolution. The man openly praises it and treats it as some kind of ascension for humanity. He is technically the main villain of the story who will have you on your guard whenever he makes an appearance.

Even the new Resident Evil 4 Remake has a very high chance of becoming one of the best Resident Evil games of all time. What are your hopes for Dead Space? Are you happy about Gunner Wright’s return? What do you think about the new AI of Dead Space? Let us know all about it in the comments section below.
