Death Stranding 2: On the Beach characters and voice cast

Here is a list of all the major characters revealed so far in Death Stranding 2: On the Beach and who plays them.

The Walking Dead fame Norman Reedus returns to reprise his role as the protagonist Sam Porter Bridges in Death Stranding 2: On the Beach. In the first game, Sam embarked on a journey across the UCA alongside his beloved BB Lou, to connect KNOTs with the BRIDGES Chiral Network.

Reedus reprises the character once again, contributing both for motion capture acting as well as voicing Sam in the sequel.

Fragile – Léa Seydoux

French actress Léa Seydoux, best known for her work in Blue is the Warmest Color, Spectre and No Time to Die will reprise her role as Fragile in Death Stranding 2. Fragile ran a parallel porter service called Fragile Express in the first game, but ever since the fallout at the end of Death Stranding, she’s now the commander of the Drawbridge ship.

She also mentions in the trailer she’s “Fragile in name only” and aims to connect the world with the Chiral Network that Drawbridge aims to build to save the world from Death Stranding.

Higgs Monaghan – Troy Baker

Troy Baker, one of the most renowned names in voice acting known for voicing Joel in The Last of Us video games and more, reprises his role as Higgs Monaghan, a terrorist for a group called Homo Demens in Death Stranding 2.

After Higgs was eliminated by Sam in the first game, seems like he’s back for vengeance, this time with a bot army of his own and in a new look that resembles a creepy Joker from DC comics.

Drawbridge Captain – George Miller

While Fragile is the commander of the ship DHV Magellan, visionary film director George Miller (known for directing Mad Max films) plays the captain of the Drawbridge crew. Hideo Kojima revealed that Miller will have a special appearance in Death Stranding 2 with voice lines which will be a surprise to players, just like it was with Del-Toro in the first game.

As Miller was seen for a short duration in the trailer, it seems he will have more of a supporting role in the game.

Drawbridge Puppet – Fatih Akin

Turkish-German film director Fatih Akin also plays a special role as the Drawbridge Puppet in Death Stranding 2. Akin is best known for his award-winning films such as Head On, The Edge of Heaven, and In the Fade.

In the Death Stranding sequel, Akin is Sam’s companion as he’ll guide him throughout the journey with his experience and knowledge, somewhat similar to Mimir’s role in the God of War games.

Unknown role – Elle Fanning

American actress Elle Fanning, best known for her work as Princess Aurora in Disney’s Maleficent films and Catherine the Great in the hit TV show The Great, will play an entirely new character in Death Stranding 2.

Both Fanning and Kojima have kept things close to their chest regarding her role in the game, but the actress has recorded both motion capture and voiced the character as well.

Voidout victim – Shioli Kutsuna
