He’s incredibly thankful to the series and what it’s done for his career and abilities as an actor. In the interview, North gives huge credit to Amy Henning for any praise Uncharted gets. It was, according to him, through her collaboration with the voice actors, knowing how to give them their voices, and solid writing that the series has held up as much as it has. Amy Henning has since left Naughty Dog as their Creative Director to join Visceral Games.
“What’s most rewarding for me, at this point in my life, is to know that what we created in this Nathan Drake Collection changed people’s lives. Made lives better.”
