Creating a Character That is Authentically Red Dead — An Interview With Roger Clark

2

Roger Clark gave Rockstar Games’s Wild West a new voice when he took on the role of Red Dead Redemption 2’s Arthur Morgan last October. Despite big boots to fill, Clark has managed to prove himself as a valuable member of the outlawed gang.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launched to critical acclaim across the board and is set to go down not only as a triumph in world-building, but as a successful character-driven story, too.

OnlySP’s Michael Cripe sat down with Clark to talk about single-player games, the character of Arthur Morgan, fun times on set, inspirations, and more at Planet Comicon KC 2019. Check out the full interview up above.

“I was trying to come up with something that was honest, yet, had enough ambiguity so that, if the player wanted to make Arthur a total bastard, my performance would still make sense…”

Clark managed to take the OnlySP Award for Best Performer during OnlySP’s Best of 2018 ceremony thanks the “emotion he brought to the role” and his “low, raspy voice that will be ingrained in the minds of players for a very long time.”

  1. Very enjoyable interview! I remember having the same thoughts he described fans having about the early trailers, being a little skeptical that Arthur would be as compelling a character as John was. But it sure turned out well.

    1. I had the same thoughts! I thought there was no way he could even compare to John, but I was proven very, very wrong—largely because of Roger!
