Mass Effect voice actor Robin Sachs dies

The voice actor behind Mass Effect 2 and 3's grizzled bounty hunter, Zaeed Masani, has died unexpectedly at 61. Robin Sachs was a BioWare staple behind several characters in Dragon Age: Origins and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and was also known for his role as Ethan Raynes in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

A message posted on Sachs' official website confirms the news, though no further details of his death have been released at this time. He would have turned 62 yesterday.

"Please join us in raising a glass to Robin--goodbye, dear friend," the post read. "Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much."

BioWare posted a brief message in Sachs' memory, thanking him for "bringing Zaeed to life in the way that only Robin could."
