The God of War Ragnarok cast is pretty expansive, featuring a wide array of actors playing new and returning characters. Both veteran performers and rising stars share the virtual cutscene stage, filling the boots of Tyr, Odin, Thor, and plenty more. The strong cast of performers in God of War Ragnarok really helps to sell its massively expanded story that draws on the earth-shaking consequences of Kratos and Atreus' epic journey in the first game. Below, I've detailed many of the God of War Ragnarok actors along with the roles they voice and where else you might know them from.
