Jennifer Hale’s Reaction To Femshep In The Mass Effect Remaster Trailer Is The Best Thing You’ll See All Day

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you might’ve missed the absolutely spectacular trailer that just dropped for Mass Effect’s original trilogy remaster – Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.

One person who’s watched it a million times (aside from me), is the female voice of Commander Shepard – Jennifer Hale.

Jennifer Hale is a legendary voice actor in her own right, and was even recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as “the most prolific video game voice actor.” Hale’s role as “Femshep”, or Commander Shepard’s female option, took on new heights however – as the character’s popularity rivaled (and perhaps even surpassed) that of Shepard’s male option, voiced by Mark Meer.

For the entirety of the Mass Effect trilogy’s original run, Meer’s male Shepard was the face of Commander Shepard in advertisements, trailers, and other promotional materials. This new trailer marks the first time ever that Femshep starred alongside her male counterpart, which understandably moved the great Ms. Hale to tears. Hell, it almost had me in tears too.

If you know me, you know I’m a huge Mass Effect guy. I obviously cannot wait for this remaster, and can’t wait to see people experiencing the trilogy for the first time.
