The MCM London Interviews - Overwatch - Mercy, Zarya and Genji - Lucie Pohl, Gaku Space and Dolya Gavanski
Jul 1st, 2018
More MCM interview goodness - this time the Overwatch voice actors took to the press room.
Actor and stand-up comedian Lucie Pohl (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Red Dwarf) plays Overwatch’s resident guardian angel Mercy. A peerless healer, Swiss scientist Mercy – real name Angela Ziegler – is a staunch advocate for peace. However, when the going gets tough and innocents are imperilled, the angelic doctor can be counted on to don her Valkyrie swift-response suit and jump into the action.
Tokyo-born Gaku Space (Westworld, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist) stalks Blizzard’s battlefields as shuriken-shooting cyborg Genji Shimada. The younger sibling of Overwatch hero Hanzo, Genji grew up the spoiled son of the Shimada ninja clan and was almost killed by his brother when he refused to abandon his playboy ways. Transformed into a cyborg by the Overwatch organisation, Genji is now a living weapon possessing superlative mobility and combat skills.
Gavanski’s character Zarya – aka Aleksandra Zaryanova – is one of the world’s strongest women, a celebrated athlete who sacrificed personal glory to protect her family, friends and country in a time of war. Deploying powerful barriers that convert incoming damage into energy for her particle cannon, the stalwart Siberian soldier is an invaluable asset on the front lines of any battle.
