The Witcher 3 Actor Who Voiced Vesemir Sadly Passes Away
Witcher fans everywhere will be laying down their swords as a mark of respect for the passing of Miłogost Reczek, the actor who voiced Vesemir.
The actor who voiced the oldest and most experienced surviving witcher, Vesemir, has sadly passed away at the age of 60. Miłogost Reczek is a voice that all Witcher 3 fans will know well as he took on the surrogate father and role model of Geralt with gusto.
The Wrocław-born actor had unfortunately been battling cancer for many years and yesterday, December 14, he eventually succumbed to the awful and heartwrenching disease Multiple myeloma which is a type of bone marrow cancer.
In an article from tvn24, Reczek is described in fondness and how he was “one of the masters of Polish dubbing,”. Although many will remember him as Vesemir, he also voiced Thaler in The Witcher series as well as other films that include Star Wars original trilogy, Despicable Me, Thomas and Friends, Monsters vs Aliens, Cyberpunk 2077 and Homer Simpson in The Simpsons.
Not only was Reczek a talented voice actor, but he was also highly regarded and respected in his theatre and radio career. Working with the Polish Theater in Wrocław for over 20 years, Reczek performed there many times where he also worked as a teacher.
In a Facebook post, Polish writer Jakub Ćwiek talked about his memories of Reczek and how he was a “Great guy, great actor and unforgettable voice” and ended his long post of encounters with the voice actor with “Good night, Sweetheart.”
Thankfully, Reczek’s voice will live on in the amazing characters he portrayed throughout the years. DualShockers would like to offer our condolences to Reczek’s family and friends at this difficult time.
