The voice of Zelda in Zelda: Breath of the Wild signs a fan's copy of the game...in Hylian!

Now that's a real fan!

Patricia Summersett played the role of Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and she earned quite a few fans with her performance. Summersett made an appearance at the Boston Comic-Con recently, and met with fans for pictures, autographs, and more. Reddit user Abaker516 got their copy of Breath of the Wild signed, and to their surprise, Summersett threw in a bit of Hylian as well! In perfect form, Summersett wrote out "open your eyes," which is definitely a phrase that means a lot to BotW fans!


That’s a nice touch. I assume Patricia Summersett will be reprising her role in the sequel to BOTW. I know some didn’t completely like her voice work, I personally didn’t think it was bad albeit did come across a bit wooden but not terrible. Hopefully she gets better direction with the voice work for the sequel.

I may be wrong but I believe the English VA did not have access to the source work like the Japanese VA so their performance came across as lifeless in certain scenes. I know for a fact that this is the reason why the English voice acting sucked in Xenoblade C2.
