Here Are the Voice Actors of Cyberpunk 2077

We've got everything you need to know about the actors and cast of Cyberpunk 2077.

With Cyberpunk 2077 set to be one of the biggest game releases of the year, we've taken a look at all the main actors in the cast to see what we can expect, who they'll be playing, and what they might be bringing to this futuristic dystopia.

Who Are the Voice Actors in Cyberpunk 2077?

Cyberpunk 2077 features a range of actors from all levels and directions, from A-list Hollywood actors to rising music stars, and these are the most significant names we've seen so far, though we'll be sure to update this when the game is released. You can see the cast list directly below, or keep scrolling to see more details.

Cyberpunk 2077 Cast List

  • Keanu Reeves - Johnny Silverhand
  • Michael-Leon Wooley - Dexter "Dex" DeShawn
  • Grimes - Lizzy Wizzy
  • Samuel Barnett - Delamain A.I.
  • Jason Hightower - Jackie Welles
  • Mark Holden - Doctor Paradox/Various Others
  • Cherami Leigh, Gavin Drea, Lidia Sadowa, Kamil Kula - Main Character/Protagonist "V"

Keanu Reeves - Johnny Silverhand

It barely needs saying, but Reeves is the face of Cyberpunk 2077, attached to all the advertising material and presenting the game at the last E3. You can take your pick of which film you recognise him from - the Matrix, John Wick, Bill and Ted, Speed, Point Break, or being a pile of dried herbs in the new Spongebob movie, to name a few - but here he's playing Johnny Silverhand, a former rockstar who was rumored to have died and now haunts the protagonist, V, as a "digital ghost". It seems like he'll be the supporting character who guides and directs you through the game, like Navi with a robot arm.

Michael-Leon Wooley - Dexter "Dex" DeShawn

Every cyberpunk story has somebody called Dex or Decker, and this one is no exception. Here the role is filled by Michael-Leon Wooley, a career actor with a mix of live-action and voiceover roles behind him. He's probably best known for his role as Louis, the cheerful, jazz-loving alligator from Disney's animated film The Princess and the Frog, but he's also got a string of video game performances behind him, ranging from the GTA games to World of Warcraft, as well as being the go-to-guy for providing the voice of DC's mega-villain Darkseid. The details we've gleamed so far show Dex to be a Fixer, the middle-man between clients and criminals, so there's a good chance he'll be giving you a lot of your quests and missions in the game.

Grimes - Lizzy Wizzy

So here's a fun role to play: in Cyberpunk 2077, Lizzy Wizzy is the frontwoman for the band Lizzy Wizzy and the Metadwarves, despite having died some time ago. Liz apparently committed suicide at one of her own concerts, but was brought back to life in a cyberware body so efficiently that she was able to finish the concert in that same night. Her signature look is a body made entirely of chrome which she enjoys taking out in her performances. Grimes herself is best known for her work as an experimental singer, songwriter and producer, with numerous soundtracks under her belt. Seems like pretty good casting for a futuristic and equally experimental music star.

Samuel Barnett - Delamain A.I.

There's very few details on this one, but it seems like Barnett - best known either for his extensive theater work or playing the lead in the 2016 TV adaptation of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency - will be playing an artificial intelligence. In fact, we've reportedly heard him as the soft, unflappable voice of the automated taxi in the 2019 E3 cinematic trailer, but it seems likely that he'll be speaking for more than just one car in the full game.

Jason Hightower - Jackie Welles

Hightower has a deep tie to video games and voice acting generally, including Red Dead Redemption 2, Fallout 76, Ghost Recon: Wildlands and several of the more recent lego games. Welles has a big part in Cyberpunk's 2018 gameplay reveal as a support character who helps you on an early job, but seemingly dies in the cinematic 2019 trailer. Still, the previous character got better after dying, so who's to say that Welles can't come back too?

Mark Holden - Doctor Paradox/Various Others

There's not a lot of details currently out there on the character that Holden's playing, despite sounding like a flamboyant 60's era supervillain. Holden's an experienced actor with whose provided work on everything from Kingsman 2 to the Battlefield games to the first Final Destination movie, and we're looking forward to hearing more about his character on the game's release.

Cherami Leigh, Gavin Drea, Lidia Sadowa, Kamil Kula - Main Character/Protagonist "V"

And of course, beyond all this there's the question of who plays you, or at least V, the main character. What with Cyberpunk's customization options, there's currently four separate actors credited with V's voice, which will presumably be something you can pick during character creation. Out of the four, all of them have solid acting careers behind them, with Sadowa and Kula working mainly out of Poland, but Leigh is almost certainly the biggest star, lending her voice to numerous games and animated films or shows in recent years, including Rhea in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Makoto in Persona 5 and A2 in NieR: Automata.
