Very few actresses apparently capable of bringing what Paige did to Beyond, according to CEO David Cage.
Speaking to Quantic Dream CEO and founder David Cage, also director of the upcoming PS3 adventure title Beyond: Two Souls, ClickOnline asked what having Ellen Paige in the starring role brought to the game and what it meant.
Cage stated that, “Well I was interested in Ellen not because of her fame, not to have a nice name on my packshot but basically because she’s a fantastic actress. That was the only motivation I had in mind.
“Now you can’t ignore that yes she’s famous and there are people who really like her and that’s going to generate some buzz around the game but that was really not the initial goal. She brings something very unique I think to the experience.
“When you play Beyond, you won’t see Ellen Page playing a role, you’ll see Jodie Holmes, this character, because she gives her flesh and bones – and more than that, she gives her soul. That is truly unique. And very few actresses I think could have been capable of doing what she did in Beyond.”
