Bioshock's Atlas Speaks. An Interview With Karl Hanover

Imagine our surprise when we realised that the voice actor who played Bioshock’s Atlas was actually Irish? I know what you’re thinking. We thought it too. There is no way that Atlas is Irish, probably just some American actor doing his best ‘paddy’ potato loving leprechaun impersonation. How wrong we were. The voice of Atlas and Frank Fontaine in the original Bioshock and its sequel is played by one Karl Hanover, a Dubliner who now calls stages and theatres the length and breadth of the United States his home. In what is a first for any site out there, TGL spoke to Karl about life, Bioshock, Morgan Freeman, Children’s books, Bioshock infinite and drunk Australians. So we ask you readers,would you kindly read on and discover just how nice an interesting a guy Karl Hanover is. Thank you.
