First Look: Maggie Robertson as “Affectionately Unhinged” Orin the Red

DUBLIN, July 27, 2023 – With the launch of Baldur’s Gate 3 just around the corner, Larian Studios has released a video introducing the RPG’s third and final central antagonist: Orin the Red.

A practitioner in the art of inflicting pain and a grandmaster of murder, Orin has killed for many years but has yet to be caught, thanks in part to her shapeshifting abilities, which enable her to take the form of anyone – perhaps even someone in your camp.

Orin the Red is voiced by the incredible Maggie Robertson, known to many as the voice of Lady Dimitrescu (Resident Evil Village) and Skjóthendi the Unerring (God of War Ragnarök).

“Orin is, affectionately, unhinged,” says Robertson, “You don’t know when she’s going to pop up, you don’t know in what form she’s going to be, she’s incredibly tricksy.”

As Orin, Maggie Robertson joins General Ketheric Thorm (J.K. Simmons) and Lord Enver Gortash (Jason Isaacs) to complete the “unholy triumvirate” of villains in Baldur’s Gate 3.

“To be considered even in the same realm much less share scenes with J.K. Simmons and Jason Isaacs… was such an honour, and it was so inspiring and exciting to see their work in this game and experience how our characters come together in the scenes we share to create this unholy, evil triumvirate.”

Baldur’s Gate 3 releases August 3rd on PC and September 6 on PS5. See the attached map for release timing per region on PC.
