Quotes

I'm a Halo guy. The Bungie folks were kind enough to have me do a voice for Halo 3. So there's nothing like sitting down to a nice game of Halo and shooting at myself. I like to get online, and the reason I like it is I've got a lot of friends in Canada and New York, all over Los Angeles and at great distances. Sometimes I take off for months at a time to go work, and my social time is on that box. You put on a little headset and unwind with your friends. You hang out, you laugh, it's good times. And when it's all done, you don't have to send anybody home. No one's drunk all your beer. You just say, 'Good night, I'm going to bed,' and it's off and it's done.[1]

Trivia

  • Nathan Fillion and Tricia Helfer (the voice of Captain Veronica Dare) recorded most of their voice work for Halo 3: ODST in the same recording booth, which is rare in voice acting.[2]
  • Nathan claims to have invented the radar jammer. For this, he was given the previously-Bungie-exclusive Bungie Armor permutation in Halo 3.[citation needed]
