Few actresses in the voice acting industry have as long and prolific of a resume as Laura Bailey. Since starting out doing voice work in the Dragonball anime as Chi-Chi back in 1986, Bailey has lent her voice to over 400+ roles across anime, television, and gaming. She returns as Kait in Gears 5.

John DiMaggio – Marcus Fenix

One of the gruffest, toughest voices to ever grace the voice acting industry, John Dimaggio returns to the Gears series again as Marcus Fenix. Outside of video games, this veteran voice actor is also known in cartoons as the voice of Bender in Futurama and Jake the Dog in Adventure Time.

Angel Desai – First Minister Jinn

It takes a stern and commanding voice to play someone like First Minister Jinn in the Gears of War series, and that is exactly what Angel Desai has been known for across her career. She has starred in many TV roles, including Linda Chao in Jessica Jones, Candida in Being Mary Jane, and a myriad of roles in the Law & Order series.

Al Rodrigo – Oscar Diaz

As a veteran of over 30 years in the film industry, Al Rodrigo has recently been exploring acting roles within the video game industry. Gears 5 is his biggest role yet, as he plays Kait Diaz’s uncle, Oscar Diaz. Rodrigo replaces Jimmy Smits, who voiced the character in Gears of War 4.

Carolyn Seymour – Queen Myrrah

While the Locust and elegance aren’t usually used in the same sentence, there is no doubt that Carolyn Seymour’s British voice brings it to Queen Myrrah when she returns for the role in Gears 5. If she sounds familiar for video game fans, it’s likely due to her work as Dr. Chakwas in the Mass Effect series or for her numerous roles in the Star Wars games.

Trisha Miller – I.R.I.S

While Trisha Miller may not have the most acting experience of the talented roster of voices in the game, she has garnered an impressive resume for video game voice acting over the last few years.

Sumalee Montano – Lahni Kaliso

Lahni Kaliso is a veteran of the Locust Wars, serving as one of the fierce, combat-tested characters in all of Gears 5. As such, it makes sense to have a voice actor in the role that is just as tenacious. After a career as an investment banking analyst, Sumalee Montano transitioned to Hollywood, lending her voice to over 100 animated TV shows and a lot of well-known movies.
