All Hogwarts Legacy Voice Actors Announced

Warner Bros. Games and Avalance Software revealed a full list of voice talent for their upcoming Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy, on 11th January. The cast list includes famous names such as Simon Pegg, who has played roles in Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Star Wars.

Hogwarts Legacy Full Cast List

Check out the full cast list announcement below:

  • Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black (Simon Pegg) – Simon Pegg plays Phineas Nigellus Black, the cantankerous Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. From a long lineage of Slytherins, Headmaster Black is hated by the students, of whom he also has a great disdain for. Wildly ill-suited to his job, his goal is to do the least amount of work possible and avoid exposure to the student body – preferring to focus on his status in the wizarding world and his surgically manicured beard.
  • Playable Avatar (Sebastian Croft / Amelia Gething) – As fifth-year students entering Hogwarts for the first time, Sebastian Croft and Amelia Gething play the two voice options for the game’s playable avatar, which can be highly customized, enabling players to choose the witch or wizard they want to be.
  • Professor Matilda Weasley (Lesley Nicol) – Lesley Nicol voices a key character in the game, Professor Matilda Weasley. A Gryffindor, she is the Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts who aids the player in catching up with the other students by giving them the Wizard’s Field Guide and showing them the Room of Requirement.
  • Professor Onai (Kandace Caine) – Kandace Caine plays Professor Onai who was once a Divination teacher at Uagadou, the largest wizarding school in the world, and a gifted Seer whose faith in her sight was shaken by the fact that she did not foresee the loss of her husband. Deciding to leave those painful memories behind, she accepts an invitation by Professor Weasley to teach Divination at Hogwarts.
  • Professor Satyavati Shah (Sohm Kapila) – The professor of Astronomy, Professor Satyavati Shah, is voiced by Sohm Kapila. Raised in the Muggle world, Professor Shah is devoted to the sciences and tends to talk down to her students in winding and pretentious aphorisms.
  • Everett Clopton (Luke Youngblood) – Longtime franchise fans will be thrilled to recognize Luke Youngblood, who played Lee Jordan in the film series as he returns to provide the voice of Everett Clopton, a Ravenclaw and a half-blood underachieving rule-breaker and prankster.
  • Mahendra Pehlwaan (Asif Ali) – Asif Ali voices another Ravenclaw student, Mahendra Pehlwaan, a muggle born and an avid rule-keeper, whose aggressive adherence to rules and guidelines even the professors have grown a bit weary of!
  • Nearly Headless Nick (Jason Anthony) – Nearly Headless Nick, the Gryffindor house ghost, also known as Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, is friendly and entertaining, if a bit pompous. He may be the key to helping the Gryffindor player find answers crucial to solving a significant mystery—if they are willing to do him one small favor involving a bit of rotten roast beef!
  • Sorting Hat (Jason Anthony) – The iconic Sorting Hat, a sentient, magical hat, uses knowledge from the student’s past along with input from the player to determine which Hogwarts house will be the right fit.

Fans should note that they should not expect to see familiar characters such as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger in the game, nor will these characters have their voice talent. Hogwarts Legacy is set in the 1800s, before the events of the Harry Potter book franchise.

Simon Pegg's Role As Headmaster Black

In a YouTube promotional video and interview for the game, Simon Pegg has described his experiences playing Headmaster Black and working with other voice talents.

"I'm extremely excited to be a part of the Harry Potter universe. I watched all those movies and always expected a role," Pegg said. "Virtually every British actor had been a part of the Wizarding World films apart from me."
