Sad news we have received in the last hours. Actor Rutger Hauer, who played the legendary Roy Batty in the great Blade Runner by Ridley Scott, has passed away at the age of 75. Like other Hollywood stars, the interpreter did not hesitate to also participate in the world of videogames, with the voice of Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts III being one of his last performances.
Hauer replaced the legendary Leonard Nimoy in the role from this villain that the Star Trek actor had been playing since Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. In addition to the Square Enix saga, the Dutch actor has worked on other video games such as the mystery adventure Observer, the work of the authors of Layers of Fear, playing the role of Daniel Lazarski.
Precisely from the team Bloober Team, who work in Witch Project for PC and Xbox One, have dedicated a few words to the Dutch interpreter. ” It was an honor to work with you. Rest in peace “, they have written on social networks, where they also remember one of their most iconic phrases in the Blade Runner movie: ” ‘All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain’ But not for us. You will always be in our hearts and Observer “.
