Last week we featured the first post to Skyboat Media’s introduction to the Ender’s Game Alive cast, which included the voice behind Andrew “Ender” Wiggin, Kirby Heyborne.
In their second round they introduce us to none other than Ender’s two halves Peter and Valentine Wiggin, Paul Boehmer and Susan Hanfield.
In ways, these two characters are two halves of Ender’s whole, and so it was incredibly important for us to find the right actors to play them.
Paul Boehmer who plays Peter Wiggin had a great reaction from the casting directors for the audioplay when he channeled his inner bully making the attendees of the first table read laugh and sigh. He’s worked as a stage, television and film actor and has worked on past projects with Skyboat Media’s like Dracula.
Watch the video below for a peek at his reading of big brother Peter.
Peter being the hard half of Ender, Valentine helped Ender realize that love is the other half of himself. Susan Hanfield is a very hard working women. Involved in narration and voice-over she is also “an accomplished actor who has appeared in several independent films, theater productions, and national commercials.” She’s also involved in the soon-to-be released audio Letters of a Nation. Susan was able to bring the vulnerability of warring siblings and was able to channel that nurturing sister. Just watch a clip of Val and Ender’s lake scene below.
I have to say Paul and Susan are amazing. I’m super excited to see what more they bring to the two characters.
With the new cast list introductions I find more and more excitement for Ender’s Game Alive. Who do you guys want to meet next?
