Bungie has now revealed a new voice actor will be replacing Lance Reddick as the voice of Destiny Commander Zavala.
Destiny Commander Zavala New Voice Actor Announced
Lance Reddick, who was the original voice actor for Destiny’s Commander Zavala, passed away at his home in Los Angeles in March 2023 at the age of 60. The studio has now announced that it plans to continue to character with a new voice actor and they found one.
“The passion and professionalism Lance brought to the role over the last decade was unmistakable and loved by all,” Bungie said in a blog post. “Lance’s iconic voice led us through the most intense moments in Destiny’s history and his impact on our Guardians, our community, and Bungie as a whole will never be forgotten.”
“Commander Zavala has been central to the story we have been telling since the original Destiny, and we have plans to continue his journey.”
Keith David Takes on the Role
When The Final Shape launches, veteran voice actor Keith David will be the voice actor for Commander Zavala. The existing in-game lines will remain untouched, but the new ones will be voiced by David.
“I am honored to continue the great work of Lance Reddick as Zavala,” said David. “Lance captured the character’s sense of integrity so wonderfully. It is my intention to continue that work.”
