Best known for being the voice of Balthier and Fenris, Gideon Emery has provided his "honey-gravel" voice for numerous characters and audiobooks. He is usually cast as some kind of criminal in his live action roles. Though his natural speaking voice is very distinctive, Emery is extremely talented when it comes to speaking in different accents. Besides acting, he is also a Jazz singer and released his self-produced album called "Standard Ease" in July 2011.
Born in England and raised in South Africa, Gideon Emery moved to Los Angeles in 2003. He attended the London MCM Expo in October 2011 alongside Dragon Age II co-star Adam Howden, where they made history being the first British guest voice actor panelists at the convention.
