Anyone familiar with co-op on the Xbox, knows how important Gears of War has been to us. From story co-op, to the beloved Horde Mode, Gears is a major staple in our way of co-op life. So, when presented with the opportunity to have a Q&A session with everyone's favorite player two, I leapt at it.
Carlos Ferro, aka Dominic Santiago, has answered a few questions for Co-optimus in the spirit of fun. So, without further ado, Carlos Ferro on voice acting, toys, and his upcoming career!
Katrina: First, being a co-op exclusive website I'd like to start with a co-op question: While playing Gears of War cooperatively, do you prefer to play as Dom or Marcus, and why?
Carlos: I prefer to play as Dom. I've become really attached to the character so it just feels right to play the part during gameplay.
Katrina: Gears of War 2 had some intense emotional scenes focused around Dom, things that got the players really involved in fighting for him. As a voice actor, what is your thought process for emotional scenes, and how do you prepare for them?
Carlos:My process is pretty straight-forward. Finding the places in the script where I can make it personal and above all, real as possible.
I asked the team if they really wanted me to "go there." Fortunately they said yes.
