A lot of what makes each Borderlands character so memorable is the heart, soul, and name recognition every voice actor puts into their performance. Maya’s actor Martha Harms, for example, has a long history of video game and anime voicework, while the voice of Krieg, Jason Douglas, has an even longer resume. FL4K, meanwhile, is voiced by SungWon Cho, but you probably know him better as ProZD. Yea, the YouTube skit artist.
Even though Cho continues to make videos on YouTube, he has been a voice actor for quite some time. You might have heard him without realizing it, with his work appearing in games and shows such as Fire Emblem Heroes, A Hat In Time, Camp Camp, and OK K.O!: Let’s Be Heroes. And apparently, so did Borderlands 3‘s voice director.
According to Cho, the writers at Gearbox asked Borderlands 3‘s voice director Joel McDonald to send him audition lines. McDonald did so reluctantly, because he only knew Cho’s work as ProZD, a “f***ing YouTuber” (Cho’s words). However, Cho impressed McDonald with what he sent back, and while Cho auditioned for several roles, he ultimately bagged the major part of FL4K.
