Call Of Duty: Warzone's Actors Are Actually A Nice-Looking Bunch

"Call of Duty" is a franchise that needs to introduction, as it continues to beat out competitors in the crowded first-person shooter genre. The series was revitalized in 2020 with the release of "Call of Duty: Warzone." Essentially a standalone free-to-play battle royale game, "Warzone" borrows elements from other popular multiplayer shooters such as "Fortnite," but includes the familiar art style and many of the gameplay mechanics from the beloved mainline "Call of Duty" titles.

Like the battle royale games that inspired it, "Call of Duty: Warzone" sees a large number of players dropped onto a remote location. As time elapses, gas slowly begins to fill the map, leaving less and less space for the action to safely take place. Ultimately, the final surviving team or player is the winner. However, the multiplayer mode also has an overarching story that is expanded with each season, not to mention a cast of characters who help bring the narrative to life and provide extra context for fans.

What you might not know, though, is what the voice actors behind these characters actually look like. While the various Operators in "Call of Duty: Warzone" are normally gritty warriors used to fighting on the battlefield, their real-life actors are actually a nice-looking bunch.

Martin Harris - Sebastian Krueger

Martin Harris portrays Sebastian Krueger in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Warzone." According to his in-game biography, the soldier had a close friendship with Coalition operator Golem before defecting from the KSK to Chimera, which is further indicated by the unique dialogue he will use when in multiplayer modes. His face is never shown, usually covered by a hood or other headgear to hide his identity.

The Polish-born actor's actual name is Martin Harasimowicz, but he typically uses the pseudonym Martin Harris when acting. Harris moved to the United States when he was 30 years old, quitting his job in his native country where he worked as a sports journalist and news correspondent. Speaking to JL Interviews, Harris explained that he changed his name to give him more versatility when it came to landing roles, hoping not to be typecast as Eastern European characters.

The risk seems to have paid off, and Harris has quite a range of roles to his name. The actor landed an uncredited role in "Angels & Demons" in 2009 before appearing in the likes of "Stonerville," "Blue Dream," and "American Nudist." More recently, he has appeared in popular television series throughout 2022, playing a German bartender in "Better Call Saul" and a reporter in "The Staircase." Fans of "Stranger Things" may recognize him as a prisoner in three episodes of Season 4.

Katy Townsend - Charlotte Charly Johnstone

Charlotte "Charly" Johnstone is a Scottish SAS soldier and part of the Coalition in both "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Warzone." Also appearing in "Call of Duty: Mobile," the character is voiced by Katy Townsend. During her early career, she was responsible for helping to free C.I.A. agent Kate Laswell from a safehouse that was under attack, permanently forming a bond between the two characters.

As you may have guessed from the fact that she portrays a Scottish character, Townsend was born and raised in Glasgow. It was in this city that she formed a passion for performance, eventually moving to Los Angeles as an adult to pursue her dream of becoming a professional actor. Speaking to Blog Critics, Townsend explained that being a voice actor can be intimidating, as it often requires you to put in great performances in just a few takes and without being able to learn lines in preparation.

Nevertheless, Townsend has carved out a niche for herself in the world of video game voice acting, portraying dozens of characters in some of the biggest franchises. Examples of her work can be heard in the games "Fallout 4," "Final Fantasy VII Remake," "Crackdown 3," and "Mass Effect: Andromeda." Katy Townsend has also appeared on screen in the likes of "Days of Our Lives" and "Hooked."

Mara Junot - Zeyna Ossou

In "Call of Duty: Warzone," Mara Junot voices Zeyna Ossou, a NATO operator who was part of the Season One content drop. The character also appears in the multiplayer for "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War," again played by Junot. A Senegalese soldier, she is an expert engineer and is capable of fixing anything she comes across. 

While she previously worked part-time in the industry, Junot explained in a "Guild Wars 2" behind-the-scenes video that she only transitioned to pursuing voice acting as a permanent job in 2008. She had initially wanted to work primarily live-action actor, but her introverted nature made this difficult and she instead chose a career in radio. In turn, this prompted her to focus on voice acting. Following her early successes, she told My Take VO that she swapped Denver for Los Angeles in 2017, moving her closer to Hollywood.

In addition to providing voiceover work for a wide range of commercials, Junot is probably best known for her work in video games. She has voiced characters in "Fortnite," "Destiny 2," "Guild Wars 2," "Genshin Impact," and "League of Legends." Superhero fans may recognize her for her appearances in "Green Lantern: Beware My Power" and "Teen Titans Go!"

Neil Ellice - Johnny Soap MacTavish

Johnny "Soap" MacTavish is easily one of the most popular characters in the "Call of Duty" franchise, ever since he was introduced in "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare." Originally portrayed by "Grey's Anatomy" star Kevin McKidd, Neil Ellice took over for the reboot "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Warzone." Soap was introduced to the battle royale game as a Coalition Operator in 2021. 

Ellice is no stranger to the world of gaming, having appeared in five episodes of "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" as a Marine. He can also be seen in a small role in Sam Raimi's "Oz the Great and Powerful." According to IGN, he was attached as a co-producer for a live action reboot of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," although the project was subsequently cancelled before filming could begin. Neil Ellice also portrayed Hunter D-90 in four episodes of the MCU series "Loki," a role for which he had a good deal of creative input. "Loki" makeup artist Douglas Noe told SyFy that Ellice suggested his character should have scars on his head to show he had been involved in previous battles. 

Ellice is set to reprise his role as MacTavish in the 2022 game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II."

Judy Alice Lee - Kim Tae Young

Within the "Call of Duty" universe, Judy Alice Lee has actually portrayed two characters. The first is Kim Tae Young of the Harpy faction, a South Korean soldier who appears in both "Call of Duty: Vanguard" and "Call of Duty: Warzone." The second character Lee plays is He Zhen-Zhen, also known as Seraph, who she voiced in "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" after replacing Charlet Chung in the role.

Graduating from UCLA, Lee has earned a living as a musician and a recording engineer on top of providing voicework for a number of projects. As Lee explained in an interview with Chris Mayek, she was originally training in dentistry before switching to her current career path. Working as a post-production audio engineer, Lee has credits on games such as Jurassic World: Aftermath," "Death Stranding," and "Mass Effect Andromeda."

When it comes to voice acting, Lee has racked up roles in a number of video games and television series familiar to genre fans.

The character is an arms dealer and mercenary who has developed a sophisticated network across North Africa thanks to his partnership with the Allegiance faction.

Born in Beirut, Kalidi studied psychology at Boston University before pursuing a career in acting. He can speak multiple languages, putting him at an advantage when it comes to voicing a ride array of characters. He would go on to train at the renowned HB Studio in New York, where he honed his skills.

His acting credits include a vast array of video games, including several "Call of Duty" games and "Grand Theft Auto 5."

In 2023, audiences can expect to see him in "Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One."

Roxana Ortega - Alexia Valenzuela

Operator Alexia "Alice" Valenzuela is a Mexican-American Coalition operative who appears in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," "Call of Duty: Warzone," and "Call of Duty: Mobile," where she is voiced by Roxana Ortega. Despite some issues with discipline during her early military career, Valenzuela has distinguished herself as an exceptional soldier and was selected for Task Force Orange.

Roxana Ortega was raised in California and was often around Los Angeles from a young age, which is when she decided she wanted to become an actor. According to an interview with "Ello Gov'nor," she went on to study at Berkeley before training in improv and comedy. An adventurous personality, she spoke to Shine Storytelling in 2017 about her experience climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, revealing just how unprepared she was for the difficult and dangerous experience. But she's also known for taking risks and reaping the rewards in her professional life. In addition to her extensive improv background, Ortega founded the talk show "Minority Retorts" and the podcast "The Risking Space."

A regular on the screen and in the voiceover booth, Ortega has worked on beloved shows such as "Santa Clarita Diet" and "The Casagrandes." In film, she's played Mrs. Gordon in "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous" and Emma in "Grand-Daddy Day Care."

Krizia Bajos - Karla Rivas

Krizia Bajos provides the voice of Karla Rivas in "Call of Duty: Warzone," "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War," and "Call of Duty: Mobile." The character is a Nicaraguan NATO operative who is available to play in both multiplayer and Zombies modes. She chose to become a soldier after witnessing the bloodshed and violence caused by the Cartel in her native land.

On her official site, Bajos explains, "Growing up in Miami to Cuban parents, and true to my Latin roots and Sagittarius spirit, I wasn't what one would call a 'wallflower.'" She developed a love of performing at home, where she would often put on amateur magic acts for her family. In 2022, the actor founded Voiceover Camp, an online school that aims to teach people how to develop their vocal talents. Speaking to TheGamer, Bajos revealed that her favorite thing about these workshops and classes is seeing people reach out and help each other to find work and a sense of community.

In addition to her work in the "Call of Duty" series, Bajos has a wide range of work under her belt. She appeared as Elena in two episodes of HBO's "Barry" and has provided voicework for "The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib," "The Casagrandes," and the video game "Evil Dead: The Game." Gamers may also recognize her voice from the 2021 television series "Arcane," based on "League of Legends," in which she played the role of Ximena. Her video game voiceover work will continue in the long-delayed title "Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2" and the episodic series "We Are OFK."

Julian Stone - UK Team Leader

Julian Stone provides the voice of the UK Team Leader in "Call of Duty: Warzone," an unseen character who provides information to players in the heat of battle. He is also responsible for setting out the rules of the mode being played. For example, he tells players to stay out of the gas and get to the safe zone when playing a standard match in "Call of Duty: Warzone."

The British actor first rose to prominence in 1988, playing Barnabas Collins in a theatrical adaptation of the supernatural soap opera "Dark Shadows." Following this, Stone landed a variety of live-action television and film roles, perhaps most famously playing the character Jerry Jacks in 72 episodes of "General Hospital" between 1998 and 1999. Although he continued to act on stage and screen, he told United States of Dramerica that he began to perform voice roles in the early 2000s.

Since then, he has portrayed characters in dozens of video games, including the likes of "Medal of Honor," "Command & Conquer," and a variety of "Call of Duty" titles. Some of his more recent work has involved roles in the "Star Wars" franchise, providing additional voices to "Star Wars: Squadrons," "Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi," and "Solo: A Star Wars Story."

Jason Anthony - Benjamin Francis Lee

Within the world of "Call of Duty," Jason Anthony is responsible for voicing the character of Benjamin Francis Lee — better known by his nickname Otter. The SAS operative appears in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," "Call of Duty: Warzone," and "Call of Duty: Mobile" and has become a fan-favorite in the multiplayer modes. According to his in-game biography, Otter grew up an orphan and eventually gained notoriety after preventing a terrorist attack in London.

An actor from an early age, Anthony appeared in a number of theater productions in the UK and went on to host interstitials between shows on ITV2. When these segments were cut in favor of live voiceovers, he stayed to carry on that role. In an interview with Check It TV, Anthony revealed that this change is what first got him interested in voice acting, so it all worked out!

Anthony has enjoyed an extensive career working on television series, video games, and movies, both in live action and voiceover roles. He provided the voices for Piney in the Disney short "Piney The Lonesome Pine" and the Control Computer in "Star Trek: Discovery." More recently, in 2022, he portrayed a British Soldier in "Ms. Marvel" and voiced Prince Aravael in the video game "Total War: Warhammer 3."

Alex Zedra - Mara

Mara from "Call of Duty: Warzone, "Modern Warfare," and "Call of Duty Mobile" is modeled after Alex Zedra and voiced by Carla Tassara. The character is a Venezuelan operator who works for the CIA and, according to in-game biographies, started working for US intelligence at the age of 15. Part of the Coalition faction, she was introduced during the first season of the battle royale game and was sent to Verdansk to intercept chemical and biological weapons being smuggled by Al-Qatala.

Unlike many of the other actors behind characters in "Call of Duty: Warzone," Alex Zedra is not primarily known for performing in games. Instead, she is a prominent model and Twitch streamer who has cultivated over half a million subscribers. Unfortunately, the character of Mara drew criticism in 2021 when writer/photographer Clayton Haugen filed a legal complaint against Activision for allegedly copying a character from his story and accompanying photoshoot — which also involved Zedra as the model for his character.

Meanwhile, Carla Tassara has voiced characters in a variety of hit video game titles over the last few years, including the likes of "Cyberpunk 2077" and "Wolfenstein: The New Order." The actor has also leant her voice to television series such as "Gabby's Dollhouse," "Craig of the Creek," and "Elena of Avalor."

Jamie Gray Hyder - Rozlin 'Roze' Helms

Rozlin Helms, often known by her nickname Roze, is an American operator in "Call of Duty: Warzone." Fighting for the Allegiance faction, she is part of the Shadow Company and previously served as a soldier in the U.S. Army Rangers. As part of her military deployment, she became a mercenary and an expert in close combat before leaving to join her current employers. Actor Jamie Gray Hyder provides the voice of the character, with April Nicol providing the character's likeness. 

Nicol works as an RN and has served as an ambassador for various brands, including Grunt Style. This part was a bit of a dream come true for her, it seems. When she booked the role in "Warzone," Nicol told KTLM, "It was completely surreal. I am a happy crier, so I just immediately started crying ... when I found out who I was going to portray."

Meanwhile, Jamie Gray Hyder is probably best known for playing the role of police officer — and later, junior detective — Katriona Tamin in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." The character was first introduced in Season 21 and left at the start of Season 23. In addition to portraying Roze, she also was part of the cast of "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, voicing Lieutenant Nora Salter. According to an interview with the Lebanese Examiner, Hyder caught the acting bug early in life, and has been following her dream ever since. She was part of the KMT Musical Theater group while a student at Stuart High School and has since had roles in hit shows such as "True Blood" and "Graceland." In 2022, she voiced DC superhero Hawkgirl in "Green Lantern: Beware My Power." 

Claudia Doumit - Farah Karim

First introduced during Season Six, Farah Karim is an operator in "Call of Duty: Warzone" who also appears in "Call of Duty: Mobile," "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2." Hailing from Urzikstan, she is part of the Chimera group, a private military company. Her in-game biography states that she was the leader of the Urzikstan Liberation Force and often joined forces with the CIA and SAS to accomplish her goals, making her an experienced fighter. Actor Claudia Doumit has portrayed the character in all of her "Call of Duty" appearances.

Born in Australia, she is of Lebanese and Italian descent and studied at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theater after she moved to Los Angeles (per NBC). The "Call of Duty" franchise marks her first role as part of the headlining cast of a video game, although she did provide some voicework for "Disney Infinity 3.0" in 2015.

She is probably most familiar to audiences as a television and film actor, appearing in popular network series such as "New Girl" and "Scandal." Doumit was cast in the NBC sci-fi show "Timeless" as Jiya, a character who evolved into a much more active role in the second season of the series. More recently, she has appeared in a regular role in Amazon's "The Boys," portraying the cunning Victoria Neuman since Season 2.

Laura Bailey - Polina Petrova

Polina Petrova made her debut in the 2021 game "Call of Duty: Vanguard" before coming to "Call of Duty: Warzone" a little later. Partly based on the Soviet sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who was credited with more than 300 kills (via Engadget), Polina Petrova joined the Red Army to fight against the Nazis and liberate her home country. An expert shot, Petrova is also known by the name "Lady Nightingale." Noted voice actor Laura Bailey is the performer behind the character, playing her in all appearances thus far.

Although Bailey has been involved with several live-action series, including "Walker, Texas Ranger," she is best known as a prolific voiceover artist with hundreds of credits to her name. She has voiced characters in a wide array of video games, including "Marvel's Avengers," "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End," "World of Warcraft," "Gears of War," and multiple "Street Fighter" games.

For her work as Abby in "The Last of Us Part 2," Bailey took home the Game Award for Best Performer in 2020.

As part of the beloved "Dungeons & Dragons" podcast "Critical Role," she is an admitted obsessive of the role-playing game. She once even left The Game Awards early so she could participate in a campaign (via Comic Book). The actor reprised her role from the podcast series for Amazon Prime Video's "The Legend of Vox Machina."

Lily Cowles - Helen Park

Helen Park first appeared in "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" before becoming a playable operator in "Call of Duty: Warzone." Voiced by Lily Cowles, Park is a British agent who studied at Oxford University and later joined MI6, becoming an expert on paramilitary organizations. As one of the organization's youngest recruits, Park quickly rose to become a trusted field worker and was assigned tasks in collaboration with the CIA.

Lily Cowles is the daughter of playwright Matthew Cowles and actor Christine Baranski (per Elle), and has been active in the entertainment industry for some time. She played a recurring role in the short-lived series "BrainDead," then later appeared in the 2020 thriller "Antebellum" alongside Janelle Monáe, Eric Lange, and Jena Malone. In 2019, she took on the part of Isobel Evans in The CW's reboot "Roswell, New Mexico," appearing in all 52 episodes before the series' end in 2022.

In an interview with Screen Rant, Cowles explained that she actively seeks projects that speak to her. She said that when she reads a really strong script, "there's something that happens makes my heart flutter and moves my soul. There's something that happens when I audition for something that I feel really passionate about that probably makes me more likely to book it."
