Resident Evil Deadly Silence

Resident Evil 1996

RESIDENT EVIL

Resident Evil (バイオハザード, spelled Baiohazādo or simply Biohazard in Japan) is a survival horror game by CAPCOM and is the first game in the Resident Evil series. It was originally released in 1996 for the PlayStation and has been subsequently ported to the Sega Saturn and PC, then re-released twice on the PlayStation in the form of a Director’s Cut. This game has many modified versions. Resident Evil Director’s Cut was released in 1997 and it was a modified version of the Original game. In 1998, Resident Evil Director’s Cut with Dual Shock version was released. Dual Shock version also contains new soundtracks. Resident Evil: Deadly Silence is an enhanced version of the original Resident Evil for the Nintendo DS port and it was released in 2006. In 2002 Capcom made a remake of the first Resident Evil game on Nintendo GameCube. This game is often known under the informal titles of Resident Evil: Remake or Resident Evil: Rebirth (abbreviated REmake and REbirth respectively). In 2015, Resident Evil HD Remaster was released for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
This game has exceptional graphics, characters have different voice actors and face models, the live action movies are replaced with animated cutscenes. Also, in Spencer’s Mansion new rooms are added.

 

First Resident Evil has live-action movies during the game opening and ending. Actors and actresses who portrayed characters in the live-action movies, weren’t voice actors in this game. Their voices were dubbed over with voice actors voices. Actors and actresses were listed with the first names or pseudonyms. They were random models. Only Sergio Alarcon has both played and voiced Albert Wesker. Voice actors weren’t credited for this game.

I contacted Ward Sexton, who was a narrator in this game and he told me that the cast below is correct.

Note: Shinji Mikami and Ward Sexton didn’t say that the voice actors were different people, however according to Barry Gjerde’s interview Scott, Barry and Lynn are only voice actors. Also Jill’s actress and voice actress is not the same person.

Shinji Mikami’s word from the interview:”That cheap filming was completely my mistake. I did not have enough time or money, and should have chosen the actors according to their acting skills, but now it’s too late for that “… -SHINJI MIKAMI

Scott McCulloch was a canadian DJ, narrator and voice actor. Scott was Ward Sexton’s good friend. He did voice acting in several video games like: Tekken, Tekken 2, Time Crisis, The Note, Castlevania : Symphony of the Night, Castlevania : Legacy of darkness and etc.

In 1995, Scott did voice over roles in two games Tekken and Tekken 2, where he voiced Paul Phoenix. Then in the same year he voiced Chris Redfield in Resident Evil. After that his most notable video game role was Richter Belmont in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (1997). Scott was an intro narrator and Paulo’s voice actor in The Note (1997). Then he was an opening narrator in Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness (1999). He also voiced Wild Dog in Time Crisis (1997), Time Crisis II (2001) and Time Crisis 3 (2003). In Tekken 5 (2005) he did additional voices. In several games Scott was working with Barry Gjerde and Lynn Harris.

Unfortunately, Scott McCulloch passed away on September 27, 2000.

IMDb page says that Scott McCulloch voiced some roles in Time Crisis II, Time Crisis 3, Time Crisis: Crisis Zone and Tekken 5. But Scott wasn’t alive at the time, so either this information is wrong or maybe Scott’s archive voice was used in these games.

Below is a photo of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night credits and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness credits, where Scott is credited as a narrator and Richter’s voice actor.

Note: Not to be confused with a Canadian actor Scott McCulloch (see below).

 

Below is a Canadian actor whose name is Scott McCulloch too and he plays in movies, TV shows and theater roles. He has never done any voice acting in video games, but people often confuse him with Scott McCulloch who was a voice actor. IMDb has incorrect information about him. He is not Scott McCulloch from the video games.

Jill Valentine was played by Inezh, who was a high school student at the time. In 1995 Inezh portrayed Jill Valentine. Live-action intro where she played Jill, was shot on the bank of Tama (River Bay Tokyo, Japan). Back then, she was a student and it’s natural that she didn’t have much experience, so a director Shinji Mikami didn’t like her acting. In an interview Shinji said that he didn’t have enough money or time, otherwise he would have chosen actors according to their acting skills. According to Shinji Mikami all these actors were chosen because of their appearence.

Una Kavanagh – Jill Valentine (voice) (uncredited)

According to Ward Sexton the list is correct so Jill’s voice actress name is Una Kavanagh.

Jill Valentine was voiced by Una Kavanagh both in live-action cutscenes and in game dialogues. According to Barry’s interview Una was a voice actress from northern Alberta, Canada. She studied at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, which is in Edmonton.

Una is known for a role of Jill Valentine only. After Resident Evil she didn’t have any other roles.

Note: Not to be confused with an Irish actress Una Kavanagh (see below)

 

Below is an Irish actress whose name is Una Kavanagh too and she plays in movies, TV shows and theater roles. I’ve contacted her on Twitter and she told me that she wasn’t Jill. So this Irish actress Una is not Una from the game, she neither played Jill, nor voiced her. However, people often confuse her with Inezh from Resident Evil, because they look like each other.

She played in many erotic TV series and movies, for example: Dangerous Passions, The Best Sex Ever, Carnal Confessions, etc. Now Wendy has twin girls and is chef food and necklace maker. Some people think that she played Jill Valentine in the First Resident Evil.

Note: Wendy Rice is not pornographic actress, she has never participated in X rated films.

Note: I’ve contacted Wendy on twitter because I wanted to check these rumors, but she hasn’t replayed yet.

      • Ciao Alessandro, innanzitutto voglio congratularmi per questo stupendo articolo che non può che piacere tutti i nostalgici che hanno giocato il primissimo (nonché bellissimo) Resident Evil. Mi ci sono imbattuto cercando appunto notizie sul cast del gioco e devo dire che ho letto davvero tutto quanto.

        Detto ciò, vorrei chiederti se posso “trascrivere” il tuo articolo in italiano sul sito http://www.4news.it, del quale sono caporedattore. Ovviamente, intendo inserire la fonte diretta che rinvia a questo articolo, ringraziandoti pubblicamente e dandoti ogni diritto.

        Fammi sapere, grazie mille!

  1. Ciao Alessandro, innanzitutto voglio congratularmi con te per questo tuo dettagliatissimo lavoro, nel quale mi sono imbattuto cercando appunto informazioni sul cast del primo e sempre bellissimo Resident Evil. Inutile dire che è interessantissimo nonché una piccola perla per i nostalgici!

    Detto ciò, vorrei chiederti se posso “trascrivere” il tuo articolo in italiano su http://www.4news.it, di cui sono caporedattore. Ovviamente, intendo inserire il link diretto al tuo pezzo originale ringraziandoti pubblicamente per la disponibilità e il tuo lavoro, riconoscendoti il tutto.

    Sperando in una risposta affermativa, ti ringrazio in anticipo!

  2. Excellent article! I enjoyed a lot reading all of this. Jill’s live action actress is still a mystery huh…I can’t remember well, but i read somewhere that it could be illana lesa. But i still think Wendy rice is the safest bet…but who knows. Has Wendy ever been in japan? maybe Hideki Kamiya knows something (he is on twitter as well) i mean, he used to work in RE1 and 2 as well, right?

  3. Ugh, how is this still a mystery?! Surely somebody knows. It definitely isn’t Una Kavanagh. I’ve been through her Twitter account and somebody asked her a few years ago, posting a pic of Jill Valentine in Res Evil 1 in the intro video and she replied “not me :-)”. Need to know who she is!

  4. Ok resident evil fans, I been searching high and low who are the real live action actors are from resident evil game in 1995 too, we all know the actors where given fake stage names because they wasn’t real actors/actresses but sadly the actor who played Barry was called Malcolm Adams but Adam sadly passed away from lung cancer in 2005 according to this forum ( http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/27363/t612247-barry-burton/16.htm ) but we all want to know who the real actress is who played inezh but sadly no has able to track her down well isn’t it obvious this can tell you answer in different ways remember the game was made 22 years ago, in today technology world everybody has at least a device such as smartphone to come online she would of seen the comments from people, she could of seen the video of making of resident evil same goes to the other actors but the person who played Jill aka inezh she was a student at the time of the making of resident evil she can be anyone and anywhere in the world dont forget this is lady in 40s today she probably didn’t fancy carry on with acting she probably could be anyone such as doctor, nurse, vet, or anything or even her probably she sadly passed away but her secretary real identity is always going to be same do you think if she wanted to people to know her real identity don’t you think she could of come forward and write on the comments or even have a fan webpage or social media profile by now!
