They REALLY should've gotten a different VA for Connor.

Actually, I heard that all the Native American characters are played by real Native Americans. At the very least, Connor's VA is a member of the Crow Tribe so it's likely he actually does speak the language in real life.

I figured the monotonous tone was because that's how they actually speak in real life. I mean even English can be a monotonous language. Usually VA's have to put extra emphasis in their words when they voice act because normal spoken English isn't that expressive, most communication is done through body language, and most of that body language is subtle, so we don't even realize just how boring our spoken language is unless we're listening to a voice recording.


I know plenty of indians who only know english, so the VA might not know the language.

remember when everyone hated nico's voice actor from GTAIV? Yeah, it definitely is racism.

So far, you've been the only racist person in this topic.

Noah Watts's bio says he visits the Crow reservation every summer. It'd be pretty awkward to go there every year, be a member of the tribe, take part in the culture, have his own Crow name and not know how to speak the language.

That is how native americans sound in movies, either it is a hollywood accent or real (there are no native americans left that speak their language natively and english second so who knows), either way the emotionless awkward delivery is the accepted way of how they sound.

It sounds like bad acting because its supposed to. So technically its good acting.

I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm just saying that I know a lot of indians who live on a reservation and they only speak english. They only know a few words of whatever the the other language is.

How many voice over artists do you know that are fluent in Iroquois?
