GR+ Live at SDCC 2015: Meet Elias Toufexis, the man who 'never asked for this'

Adam Jensen from Square Enix and Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex: Human Revolution (opens in new tab) has one of the most recognizable voices of any video game character. More accurately, it's his voice actor, Elias Toufexis, who has the recognizable voice. And poor Elias, how was he to know one line from the game he starred in would become a prevalent Internet meme? After all, he never asked for this!

Sorry, sorry. Just had to get that out of my system. In all honesty, it's interesting to listen to Toufexis talk about his audition for the role, as it turns out he didn't know who he was trying out for until much later. We also took the time to find out more about the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (opens in new tab), as well as the SyFy show The Expanse, which features Toufexis as ... well, he never told us this. Check out the full interview with Elias Toufexis from San Diego Comic-Con 2015 (opens in new tab) below!
