At the recent PlayStation Showcase event, we got another look at God of War Ragnarok, and it revealed that Thor is making his series debut.

If you're wondering who provides the voice for Sony Santa Monica's version of the character, who certainly looks different to the MCU version you know and love, here's the low down on God of War Ragnarok's Thor voice actor, Ryan Hurst.

Who Is God of War Ragnarok's Thor Voice Actor?

As we said, Thor is played by Ryan Hurst in God of War Ragnarok, as was confirmed shortly after the showcase reveal.

While he's not played characters in many video games before, you'll likely know him from some of his TV roles. Below is a list of some of his most high profile roles:

  • Beta in The Walking Dead
  • Chick Hogan in Bates Motel
  • Harry 'Opie' Winston in Sons of Anarchy
  • Harry 'Opie' Winston in Bosch
  • Oliver Ostergaard in Paradise City

For a full look at all his previous roles, you can check out his IMDb page. It is almost exclusively TV roles, at least over the past few years.

Thor the Character

In a PlayStation Blog post, Sony broke down what we can expect from Thor, who will be an antagonist in the game. The blog's description reads:

"Also suffering the loss of his sons and half-brother, Thor’s legendary bloodlust and wrath will be aimed at Kratos and Atreus.
Referred to disparagingly by Mimir as the “Biggest Butchering Bastard in the Nine Realms,” Thor earned his title as one of the most powerful Aesir gods by wiping out nearly all the Giants at Odin’s command.
While we don’t want to give too much away right now, we think even a peek at Mjölnir wreathed in lightning will give you a hint at just how formidable Thor will be as an adversary."

You'll also get a good look at Ragnarok's Thor in the new trailer, which you can see above.

I'm sure we'll see more from the iconic character between now and the game's release - the release date still has to be revealed too.
