The actor took part in the upcoming Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind
Imari Williams, who played Tremor in the upcoming Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind, talked to ComingSoon.
This actor is known for Augus role in Asura's Wrath, Shona's performance in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, and dozens of episodic roles in voicing TV shows, games, and anime dubbing. As it turned out, he was also into fighting games at some point in his life and was familiar with the Mortal Kombat universe before he started working on the project.
This is how he describes his passion for fighting games:
I grew up with Mortal Kombat during my whole life. It was the split between Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and Tekken. It was great. What I associate Mortal Kombat with is frustration, because you’re always trying to get their fatalities, you’re always trying to master the character, and you’re always trying to get your timing just right — especially for the controllers when they first came out with it. Then over time, seeing it evolve and seeing things change and gameplay change, and then all of a sudden, they made a franchise. I was around to see the first Mortal Kombat movie in the 90s, man, when it first came out. So it’s been part of my fabric since I was a kid, basically.
Imari also talked a little about how Tremor is represented in the dark universe of Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind:
He wanted to be a nice, good, nasty, bad guy, and he was able to do that. He also enabled me to distill and just kind of sink into him and not really rush him and take my time with him. Then bring a deepness and a grittiness to my voice. He is there for the muscle, but he’s also keeping things in line for King Kano. I love the physicality of the character and I love the pure power of him. So it was awesome. And I thought he fit really well in the storyline.
