Illari is a new support hero introduced in Overwatch 2′s new season: Invasion. She uses sunlight as her power source and has never-seen-before mechanics. Illari is Peruvian and one of two South Americans with Sombra in Overwatch 2. Illari’s voice is also very attractive and prominent as her personality. Her dialogues with other characters stand out a lot in the game. But who is the voice actor of Illari in Overwatch 2? Let’s explain.
Who Is Illari’s Voice Actor in Overwatch 2?
Illari’s voice actor is Andre Cisneros who is a Peruvian pop musician. Andre Cisneros was born in Lima, Peru, and is the same race as the new Overwatch 2 hero, Illari. Andre Cisneros goes by the stage name ANDRE and releases her music on platforms such as Spotify. She studied in Barcelona and is a professional soprano. She has four tracks on Spotify, and “No Valentin,” her most recent song, was released in July. Not much is known about Andre outside of her musical career, but since she voices Illari, we’re sure her fanbase will grow bigger and we’ll learn a lot about her over time.
Blizzard chooses the voice actors for Overwatch 2 to match the race of the heroes to ensure the perfect fit, just like Illari. Therefore, you may have noticed that most heroes have many voice lines in their own language. Overwatch 2 heroes shout their ultimate voice line in their own language if they’re on the opposing team. For example, while playing heroes such as Mercy, Sombra, Lifeweaver, and Widowmaker, you will have the chance to learn different languages. We really appreciate Blizzard’s effort to bring different cultures into the game, and we expect heroes from races we’ve never seen in the future.
Most of the Overwatch voiceover team are friends and they produce content together on TikTok and Youtube. Carolina Ravassa, the voice of Sombra, is the most active among them and makes fun videos with all the voice actors. We hope Andre and Carolina release videos together!
Hopefully, this guide has given you a solid idea about the voice actor of Illari, Overwatch 2‘s new support hero. Get ready for new adventures in Overwatch 2 by playing Illari with the voice of Andre Cisneros!
