Death Stranding added two new names to its all-star cast list in last night’s curious gameplay reveal: French actress Léa Seydoux and the Bionic Woman herself Lindsay Wagner. Both actresses will have prominent roles in the PlayStation 4 exclusive, alongside Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen – an insane cast.
Director and auteur Hideo Kojima wrote: “All of the cast who have been revealed to date, including Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, are people who I grew very fond of, and had a strong desire to work with. Having fallen for them, I pulled some strings (strands), and asked them to be in my game. I wasn’t motivated by marketing or sales, but simply driven by my creative inspiration.”
You really should give Kojima’s blog post a read if you’re interested in learning more about the creative process behind Death Stranding; it’s ambiguous, as you’d expect from the veteran, but it’s quite sentimental and honest. Well worth thumbing through.
