Patrick Seitz just clarified the Laurent VA confusion that he did voiced Laurent, not George C. Cole

Recommended Posts

I just got a Twitter notification that Patrick Seitz (the voice director in Awakening, Warriors, Three Houses, and Heroes along with VA for Basilio, Hector, Camus, Jeritza, etc.) just tweeted minutes ago when I asked Patrick Seitz about the confusion that Behind The Voice Actors website (which it was skeptical for them to make jump the gun to put it in a snap and claming it that they were right without checking their sources) about if he did voiced Laurent that made confusion around in 2016. Patrick Seitz just reconfirmed it in his tweet reply that he indeed voiced Laurent in Awakening (he did made a mistake in 2016 that he didn't exclusively voiced Basilio in Awakening). The credits in Fire Emblem Awakening for Laurent's part labeled voiced by George C. Cole was a mistake.

I'm impressed that he remembered to reply to a five year old tweet. I wonder what jogged his memory; did he happen to hear some of Laurent's lines recently and thought "oh yeah, I did voice him after all"? Is Laurent getting into Heroes soon? It's good to know regardless, especially after all these years.

That’s the only logical explanation I can think of. He was probably contacted recently to do the voice again for an upcoming awakening kids banner which then prompted him to remember this tweet and reply to it.

IDK what US Laurent sounds like, so I probably can't tell a difference between how one VA'd do it from another. Seitz and Cole are both big names in the US for VA work they do, I'm surprised neither of them or the fan base addressed it when it was relevant. Especially now that it's 4 years later lol. I suppose your question set off a spark!

My concern is how did he forget his own voice, and why did the website jump the gun and list whatever VA they wanted/believed true? I know typecasting and "overworking" (not in the sense of working to much in a short time/crunch, rather studios using the same VAs in every project they work on) is a big thing for VA's, especially because freelance/management works very differently in the US, but a VA should recognize his own voice. I suppose since he was the VD, he'd know how his voice would sound in the final product, but I think it's just as important to experience it, as cringey as it may be, in the moments it was intended to judge a performance in full rather than sitting and listening to a few clips. I suppose Awakening is a special case with the unvoiced dialogue and grunt/short line format, though. 

My biggest concern is how I've seen the website sourced multiple times on Eng fandom other sites, even by VA's themselves, so I assumed they'd always have confirmation or something before crediting works...obviously this is not the case

Even then, he could have been casted now, but not then, seeing how both VAs have a fair share of work which isn't credited/appropriately credited in the first place and a fair share of old VA's are no longer doing work within certain circles, etc. 

Spoiler

I don't want to believe Seitz to be the only credited VD for Three Houses/Warriors/Heroes seeing how an expensive cast of big name VAs did some iffy voices and some subpar lines, which is common for FE, but 3 times in a row? With big name actors? And the same big name staff? I'm going to pretend communication was minimal in the production process which mixed things up so I don't point fingers at any one person in a multiman task.

Awakening banner confirmed then? 

Now's as good a time as any. Severa needs to get into the game at some point. 

Seeing how Navarre and Zihark happened to both drop with alts when talk of them seemed high (on my end), the recent Severa not being in heroes memes dictate it's happening. Looking at the BHB revivals, they are all Awakening themed, and the only banners we are getting are special heroes...it's likely an Awakening seasonal, be it hot spring or something different for mid January, or the Valentine heroes in early February.

I only did was asked Patrick Seitz back at 2016 about if he ever did voiced Laurent because of the guys at Behind The Voice Actors were making some theories from 2016 about the credits in Awakening that Nintendo put Laurent as his Va as George C. Cole as a mistake and think Patrick Seitz was the one voiced him and they were carelessly put in their page without sources. I only did was tried to show the confirmation to the guys at Behind The Voice Actors about Patrick Seitz's response that he didn't voice Laurent back at 2016 (this was before Patrick Seitz replied back saying he made a mistake that he did voiced Laurent) and their admin NCZ was kinda angry at me with a snarky comment when I showed them Patrick's tweet about his response as a source that they never bothered to fix it afterwards in the Awakening VA cast page in the website.

I'm kinda wondered if Patrick managed to listen his recordings of Laurent in Awakening since he hasn't voiced him since 2012-2013?

A hotspring Severa would make sense since Awakening already picked her for a special hotspring outfit.
