Watch (a very much alive) Sean Bean's soothing voicework for Civilization VI


I’m glad he’s not dead

As if Sean Bean doesn’t already joke about dying in nearly every one of his films, he makes a crack about being “replaced” in the next Civilization, creating a canon death for his character, the narrator. It’s heartbreaking!

More triumphantly, you can get a little behind-the-scenes look at this process, in which he low-key says it’s easier than making films because you have the lines in front of you. Oh, and the brief footage of the chorus that performs live music? Wonderful.

I wish there was hours of footage of Sean Bean smiling in a sound booth.
