Mark Meer

On the 14th February, 2015, Commander Shepard himself will be attending MCM Midlands Comic Con.

Well, not the actual SPECTRE himself, but the amazing voice actor who played the iconic protagonist, Mark Meer will be attending to meet fans and sign autographs. He is the first special guest to be announced for the convention.

Mark Meer is best known for playing the saviour of the galaxy, Shepard in the best-selling Mass Effect series. Shepard’s story may have ended in Mass Effect 3, but the legend still lives on through Mark Meer. If you’re lucky, you may be able to talk to him about his future involvement in the iconic series, which videogame company BioWare have remained tight-lipped about.

As well as starring as the destroyer of the Reapers, Meer has also starred in other hit BioWare games such as Dragon Age: Origins, where he voiced Athras, The Gatekeeper and the Unscrupulous Merchant. He also stared in the 2005 action adventure videogame Jade Empire, where he provided his voice for the roles of The Watcher and Zhong. He will also be appearing in the upcoming open world survival game, The Long Dark, where he will be playing the characrer of William Mackenzie.

Away from games, Mark Meer has also showed his writing skills as he both co-created and writes for the comedy series Tiny Plastic Men. For his work on the show, Meer has been nominated in the catergory of Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role at the Canadian Screen Awards.

There’s no denying that Mark Meer is one of the most recognisable voice actors in video games. At this upcoming Comic Con fans are going to be lucky enough to meet the man behind the legendary hero Shepard and so many other roles. You can follow Mark Meer on his official Twitter at @Mark_Meer.
