Nathan Drake’s Pain And Suffering Is All Real

With detailed motion capture becoming industry standard, spare a thought for the potential pain and anguish of those who do the acting to make your favourite characters come to life on your screen – like Nolan North as Nathan Drake.

Speaking earlier today at Eurogamer Expo, Nolan North revealed how he’d broken his ribs falling off his bike two weeks before his motion capture sessions for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

“I broke two of my ribs. They actually snapped right off my sternum.”

Great acting is all well and good, but I guess nothing beats a little bit of authenticity in your performance. When you’re putting Drake through his paces in Uncharted 3 spare a thought for the genuine suffering of Mr. North.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is out on PS3 on November 1st for American territories and the 2nd for Europe and Japan.
