10. Susan Sarandon – Granny Rags (Dishonored)
Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking), who had earned a total of five Oscar nominations throughout her career, gives one of the most genuinely chilling performances from a voice actor in a video game. The 2012 cult favorite game Dishonored featured the talented voice work of Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) and Carrie Fisher, who plays Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. These stars relegate Susan Sarandon to go overlooked in her small role. The sinister elderly woman named Granny Rags is brought to life through Sarandon’s voice, which brings a uniquely brooding speech that represents her character beautifully in its dark glory. Sarandon brings a uniquely entertaining take that sends shivers down the spines of gamers. Her long list of credits practically ensures you’ve seen a film that stars Sarandon, yet in today’s age, she manages to go overlooked while starring in this blockbuster game.
