Resident Evil: Village actress spill the beans about Lady Dimitrescu

In an interview with PC Gamer, Maggie Robertson revealed her secrets about voicing and portraying her character. The internet has grown to call her the tall vampire lady, as the gaming studio didn’t reveal the name in initial days.

” In the performance capture studio they taped a weird half-hat thing to my helmet, and despite it looking interesting, it was actually really helpful to me as an actor. I got a sense of where Lady D’s hat would sit, and I played with the idea of her looking up at people under the brim. And the hat kind of curves as well, so I incorporated that into her physical movement. Nothing ever happens in a straight line when she moves. If she’s gonna look to the side, she’s gonna wind her way there. Everything is very indirect and curvy about her movements.”

A friend’s suggestion led her on the pathway of acting

Maggie decided to make her career in acting because of a friend’s suggestion. She then fell in love with the art form and even pursued her graduation in BA degree in Theater from Muhlenberg College. She went on to pursue a master’s in acting from LAMDA (the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art) in England and it also played a key role in training her for the role.

Maggie did not know about the gaming industry initially and her move to LA exposed her to the gaming industry. She also revealed that voicing Lady Dimitrescu wasn’t a simple task. She carried a mix of mid-Atlantic accents to accurately portray her.

The tall lady carried a flair of superiority, which shows in her voice. However, this had definitely posed a challenge for her to voice the character in a manner that did justice to this character attribute.
