The Modern Warfare series is back – and so are some iconic characters from the Call of Duty franchise.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , the sequel to the 2019 reboot, sees Captain Price joined by two very familiar faces as both Simon 'Ghost' Riley and Johnny 'Soap' McTavish appear prominently in the campaign as playable characters.

The characters and their appearance have gone down in video game history but who are the voice actors behind the legends? The reboot has gone for a different cast than the original series, but Soap's iconic Scottish timbre is still there – here's who brings the characters to life in Cod MW2.

Full cast list of CoD MW2 voice actors

The full CoD MW2 cast list is as follows:

  • Barry Sloane plays Captain John Price
  • Samuel Roukin plays Lieutenant Simon "Ghost" Riley
  • Neil Ellice plays Sergeant John "Soap" MacTavish
  • Elliot Knight plays Sergeant Kyle "Gaz" Garrick
  • Alain Mesa plays Colonel Alejandro Vargas
  • Mari Elisa Camargo plays Valeria Garza
  • Thomas Beaudoin plays Reyes
  • Warren Kole plays Philip Graves
  • Rya Khilstedt plays Kate Laswell
  • Claudia Doumit plays Farah Karim
  • Ibrahim Renno plays Major Hassan Zyani
  • Stefan Kapičić plays Nikolai
  • Ramon Fernandez plays Diego Salgado
  • Glenn Morshower plays General Shepherd

Why you recognise the Cod MW2 cast

Barry Sloane (Captain Price) and Samuel Roukin (Ghost) are two of the main characters in CoD MW2

Call of Duty is one of the biggest video game franchises in the world, so it's only fitting that you'd recognise a few of the cast from other movies, games and TV shows.

Barry Sloane is, of course, returning from the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot in which he memorably voiced Captain Price, but the English actor has also made appearances in Hollyoaks, DCI Banks, Holby City and hit US drama Revenge.

Samuel Roukin provides the new voice of Ghost in MW2, but he has previously played a snatcher in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Faulnak in Marvel TV spin-off Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and John Graves Simcoe in revolutionary war drama Turn: Washington's Spies.

Taking on the beloved role of Soap is Neil Ellice , who's also had a taste of the MCU as Hunter D-90 in Loki as well as previous video game experience in TV mini-series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.

Elliot Knight, Warren Kole, Glenn Morshower and Claudia Doumit

Elliot Knight went down the DC route, however, as Dove in edgy superhero drama Titans , and also played Merlin in fairy tale drama Once Upon A Time as well as the titular role in Sky's Sinbad.

Pop culture fans will certainly have seen Warren Kole before – he portrayed villain Rafe Adler in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and was the infamous 'Galaga Guy' in the first Avengers film. He is currently starring as Jeff Sadecki in Yellowjackets .

Glenn Morshower is no stranger to playing military leaders – as well as the infamous General Shepherd, he appeared as General Sharp Morshower in the Transformers films and Secret Service Agent Aaron Pierce in 24.

Farah Karim actress Claudia Doumit will be familiar to most for playing Victoria Neuman in superhero series The Boys , but also starred in sci-fi series Timeless and three episodes of Scandal.

Alejandro Vargas actor Alain Mesa is no stranger to video game roles having provided additional voices to the likes of Saints Row , Red Dead Redemption 2 and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End . He also voiced Victor Garcia Hernandez in Forza Horizon 5 and Giles and Cookie in Wastelanders 3.

Mari Elisa Camargo 's turn as villain Valeria Garza has proved a hit on social media, but Camargo was already well known in Latin America after competing in The X Factor Colombia and later becoming a TV star in Mexico. She became known to a more international audience after guest starring in martial arts crime drama Warrior.

Stefan Kapičić will be known to most for his role as Colossus in the Deadpool films, though he has also appeared in six episodes of Better Call Saul and lent his voice to an episode of Love, Death & Robots.

Who Is Ghost's Voice Actor in 'Call of Duty' and Why Is His Performance All Over TikTok?

Who is the voice actor for Ghost in 'Call of Duty'? Users on TikTok and beyond are obsessed with the character's gruff voice and demeanor.

Callie (Carlos) Cadorniga - Author

Nov. 3 2022, Published 1:45 p.m. ET

It's not uncommon for a meme's popularity to transcend its original source. The "To Be Continued" joke became ingrained in meme culture well past its relevance in the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure anime. " Taste the Biscuit " continually pops up in new meme forms with people not knowing that it comes from a mockumentary movie.

In recent trends, many people on the internet are discovering Ghost from the Call of Duty series.

More specifically, both average players and non- CoD fans alike are kinda thirsting over his voice performance in the games. With voice actors constantly battling for recognition in the entertainment industry, we'd be remiss not to tell you who the voice actor is behind Ghost, especially since his voice clips are going viral lately.

Who is the voice actor for Ghost in 'Call of Duty'?

Simon "Ghost" Riley has appeared in several Call of Duty games and spin-offs throughout the franchise, but he first debuted in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2009. In his initial appearance, he is a member of the elite special operations unit known as Task Force 141. He is easily recognizable by his skull-decorated headgear, which completely obscures his facial features.

Aside from his game appearances, Ghost has also made appearances in fan films and comic book tie-ins.

In Modern Warfare 2, Ghost's voice is provided by Craig Fairbrass . Primarily active in the U.K., Craig is known for his performances in a BBC soap opera called EastEnders and has had multiple appearances in the Rise of the Footsoldier British film series. He has also lent his voice to other Call of Duty games, as well as 2018's Battlefield V.

As for his future projects, he will soon be featured in the live-action adaptation of One Piece on Netflix.

He is well-known in certain parts of the world for his roles in live-action gangster movies, but his 2009 performance as Ghost has been making the rounds on platforms like TikTok as of late.

@sophiatheneanderthal give me a month and i’ll be over him.. definitely guys… #mw2 #ghost ♬ original sound - sxshi.Izzy

Ghost's performance has been going viral on TikTok.

TikTokers have been obsessing lately over Craig's performance as Ghost in Modern Warfare 2. Many have pointed out one voice clip in particular that has them thirsting.

In this exchange, someone asks Ghost to remove his signature mask, to which Ghost replies "Negative."

When asked if he's ugly in response, Ghost retorts, "Quite the opposite."

It's a smooth-AF line, to be sure, and it certainly has TikTok raving.

Folks have been posting about the "quite the opposite" quip and simply going gaga over it. It's not much in the way of content, but who wouldn't swoon over a gruff British voice humble-bragging about how handsome he is?

Unfortunately, as with most gaming-adjacent content, some gamers have taken to gatekeeping folks who are thirsting without context.

In some thinly-veiled criticisms, people have commented at TikToker @sophiatheneanderthal for posting herself lip-syncing to the line, claiming that it "sounds like he's smirking when he says it."

The smirk comment drew some ire from CoD fans, for some reason, with people claiming that "Ghost doesn't smile," so she shouldn't have either in her TikTok.

That has to be a new level of obnoxious, even for gatekeeping gamers.
