Voice actors

This article is dedicated to providing an overview of voice actors who've lent their talents to TDM, and also offer Fan Mission creators the opportunity to contact voice actors who could help them with new voice acting for their FMs.

We've divided the article into:

  • 1.) voice actors who've provided their talents to the vocal sets now-official for the base game (please see the Voices article for more info)
  • 2.) and volunteer voice actors, who provide voice acting outside of the vocal sets, or provide one-off additions to vocal sets.

Voice actors in the official vocal sets

To hear a sample of a character's voice, click the link in the name of their character archetype.

To access the voice actor's profile or their contact information, click the link in their name.

Each set has a "guard" and "civilian" version, the civilian version is used for unarmed characters.

(Two new vocal sets each were added in versions 1.08 and 2.0. The Voices article might need an update concerning those too, since it currently lacks them, and their voice actors are unclear.)

Please, only update the above table if a new vocal set has been fully added to the base game, otherwise leave it be. However, if there is missing info on specific voice actors, or which version of TDM introduced a specific vocal set, feel free to fill in the remaining gaps.

Vocal scripts info

Please see the Vocal scripts overview article for more detailed information.

Volunteer voice actors

These are mostly various other TDM contributors, willing to lend their vocal talents to custom voice acting in FMs. Sometimes, the people who've done the acting for the vocal sets of the official release also contribute to new FMs, but this is more rare.

To access the voice actor's profile or their contact information, click the link in their name.

Voice actor VA offer (link) Specialises in... Notes


AndrosTheOxen Main thread link
Thread link 1
Thread link 2
VA's site, Demo reel
Male characters, presumably. Link with Andros presentig his portfolio. Recommended by AluminumHaste too. Andros has also voiced the 2017 Official TDM Trailer.
Deadlove Post link Male characters. Deadlove hasn't visited much since early 2017, he might be inaccessible.
Lux Post link Builders, from what can be gathered at the forums. Possibly available to do some voice acting, but not much around recently. Should have a good mic, he bought a new one recently.
Mollyness Thread link Female voices, mainly younger. You can get in touch with Molly directly through the forum, she answers PMs promptly. Voicework demo available behind the offer link.
Narrator Thread link Mainly male characters he's already done ("Commander" archetype). Narrator posts very little, but he seems to visit the site fairly regularly. If you need new voice acting for the "Commander" vocal set, you could probably contact him for that.
Noelker Post link Male characters. Can do thieves, guards, noblemen, and undead/supernatural characters. Recorded as the main character on the upcoming campaign. Noelker visits the forums from time to time, e.g. as recently as early 2018. He is free to do VA work during weekday nights and all day on weekends. His time zone is GMT-5:00. Voicework demo available behind the offer link.
Available voice actors
at TTLG.com
External link Various characters, as the TTLG.com forums have well over a dozen experienced voice actors. The largest and longest-lived Thief fan community on the Internet has had its individual members doing voice acting for FMs for many years. Several TTLG.com members have contributed to both the official vocal sets and the more mission-specific voice acting in TDM.
Voice Acting Club External link Various characters, as the forum has hundreds of members. Recommended by Springheel. A discussion forum with a community of voice actors and their demo reels. (The current version of the VAC forum has been active since 2017.)

Feel free to gradually expand the list in this table. Especially if the specific voice actors you have in mind visit the forums regularly and FM makers could contact them without a longer wait.
