Aerith's Actor Has a Lovely Reaction to Her Voice in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Here's something charming to start your day.

Here's something incredibly pure for you today. The actor behind Final Fantasy 7 Remake's Aerith, Briana White, has been streaming the remake in full, and she just recently reached the point where her own character is introduced for the first time.

You can see the clip in full below, where Cloud meets the mysterious "flower peddler" for the first time. White gets understandably emotional upon hearing her own voice in the finished product for the very first time, and it's a really special moment.

Aerith is, of course, one of the absolute standout characters of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Even if you didn't play the original game (as I'm sure plenty of you haven't), Aerith's still an absolutely charming character to meet for the very first time, especially because there's so much mystery surrounding her for newcomers. Even our Senior Editor Caty McCarthy is being converted to Team Aerith!

I'll level with you, I think we often overlook the voice work that goes into games like this, especially in cases like this where people might disregard a great English dub in favor of playing with the original Japanese voiceover. I think with Final Fantasy 7 Remake in particular, the voice acting has been nothing short of superb, especially in one certain section of the game that I'm not actually sure I want to spoil here, but credit to Erica Lindbeck and Gideon Emery for giving excellent performances as Jessie and Biggs, respectively.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is finally here, and there's plenty to look forward to. If you've already finished the ambitious remake, head over to our predictions for part two of the remake. There's a lot to delve into.
