Find­ing your voices

EDGE - - HYPE -

Thanks in large part to Backer’s Bafta con­nec­tions, The Brad­well Con­spir­acy boasts a star-stud­ded cast, in­clud­ing As­sas­sin’s Creed Ori­gins ac­tor Abubakar Salim as the voice of the AI guide, and Jonathan Ross, who lends his dis­tinc­tive tones to the in­duc­tion’s nar­ra­tor. The role of Dr Am­ber Ran­dall was a long cast­ing process, Backer says: “She needed to be funny, she needed be author­i­ta­tive. Holly and I were so clear about the char­ac­ter that we were like, ‘How are we go­ing to find this per­son that’s so in our heads?’” When Re­becca LaChance walked in for the last au­di­tion of the sec­ond cast­ing call, how­ever, they knew they had their ac­tor. “She walked in and read the first few lines, and I was like, ‘Holy shit!’ It was such a re­lief.”
