Iconic Hitman Voice Actors Meet IRL For The First Time

It’s hard to believe, but the Hitman voice actors for Agent 47 and his handler had never met – until now.

Hitman is an incredibly popular games series. The series is now 21 one years old – it’s old enough to be an HGV driver here in the UK (maybe the government will send the game a letter inviting them to drive lorries).

Focusing on stealthy assassinations, the game’s main character, Agent 47, is a bit of blank slate. Throughout all the games, Agent 47 has been voiced by David Bateson. In the ill-fated movies, he’s been played by Timothy Olyphant (2007) and Rupert Friend (2015). His handler, Diana Burnwood, has had a few voice actors portray her, including: Vivienne McKee; Marsha Thomason; and (most recently) Jane Perry.

In a heartwarming selfie, we can see Bateson meeting Perry for the very first time:

Perry voiced Burnwood in the World of Assassination trilogy, between 2016-2021. Up until today, the two had never met! It took a while for the two characters they play to meet face-to-face in the game. Perhaps this is a case of life mimicking art.
