• [ENTERTAINMENT] Lord of the Rings’ Sir Ian McKellen reads Archer’s lines from Fate/Stay Night

    Sir Ian McKellen has one of the most iconic voices in Hollywood, along with Morgan Freeman and Samuel L. Jackson. Now, imagine him reading the lines for Archer (Shiro Emiya) from Fate/Stay night, and in particular, that chant he usually says when he is about to unleash his Unlimited Blade Works…

    The legendary actor, who is best known for playing the older Magneto in the X-Men movies, as well as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, was invited for an interview by the Chinese streaming site, Bilibili. A part of that interview involved having the real-life knight/ activist/ stage and film actor reading Archer’s lines. It’s safe to say that he was a bit confused, but the ones making him read those lines were clearly amused.


    He read the lines in his usual epic voice, which would pretty much make any narration exciting. He would make an epic seiyuu, however, as he has said in the video, many animation projects probably “can’t afford him.” Kinda makes you wonder what might happen if he were to voice a few epic characters in Japanese works…
