Final Fantasy actor reveals shocking detail about 16 – and it even surprised him | The Sun

FINAL Fantasy 16’s Clive voice actor, Ben Starr, has revealed a shocking detail about the game. 

Out now, the latest game in the Final Fantasy series is one players have been waiting 13 years to play.

Speaking to GLHF, Starr revealed that he interviewed for the part without knowing what it was, or the game it was for.

When asked if he knew it was a Final Fantasy game, Starr says: “No, I didn't know. 

“It was a codename, and there were lots of people I knew who were auditioning for this and were asking ‘Are you auditioning for this game?’ 

“I said, ‘I think I'm going to audition for this game’.

“I was in for a very, very small part. And then when I was actually in the room, they said, ‘Oh, can you read for something else?’”

When they changed the script on him, Starr still didn’t know what the game was, let alone that he was auditioning for the main part.

However, this mystery didn’t end in the audition room, and continued on even after he was offered the role.

He says: “I ended up getting these lines blind and reading them, and it ended up being for the main part.

“Four days later, they said, ‘Congratulations, you've got a part in a game’, but I didn't know what it was because everything was so cagey.

“All the names had been changed. I think Dominance had been changed to Demonites in it, and the Final Fantasy words you would know just weren’t there. Even Clive was called Clint.”

A self-confessed huge Final Fantasy fan, Starr began his journey with 8, which remains his favourite to this day.

However, even after the audition and accepting the job, he didn’t know that there would even be a Final Fantasy 16, and especially that he would be in it.

He says: “I didn't know and I'm a huge Final Fantasy fan. 

“I didn't know that they were making a sixteenth entry in the franchise because no one had really spoken about it. 

“The fact that they were going to be doing it in English first and we'll be recording it in England was weird. 

“So everything just took me by surprise when I finally got the okay saying this is going to be Final Fantasy 16.”

As a Final Fantasy fan there is only one thing he wanted to see return to the series.

He says: “If I'm going to use the platform that I have on Final Fantasy 16, if I can have one thing it is to bring Doomtrain back.
