Before I got the part of Brigitte, I used to play Pharah, because my brother told me to
and he was like, “It’s easy. You just have to aim.
Just don’t get on the ground. Just be in the sky all the time.” During my third voice test, I read through the lines and I saw that one of the lines was, “Defend the objective.” This is Overwatch. I know this. This is insane. I play the game and now I’m in it. It just doesn’t add up. I remember
I wanted to tell my brother the most, because he showed me the game, and he’s a huge gamer himself, and he loves Overwatch. My parents are voice actors, so that’s the only reason
I’m a voice actor. It feels like the same for Brigitte. She has Torbjörn in the business, so to speak. It’s really the perfect character to do when doing a game for the first time. It’s like, “OK, I messed up;
then I’ll go again.” And it’s really that attitude I’m trying to apply to myself. Hard work pays off! Hard work pays off! Skägget i brevlådan. Skägget i brevlådan. For me, when you voice act, I think if you have a musical ear, it helps.YeahI’ve been walking along to my own beatUsing my two feetChoosing my own streets before you cameBrigitte is really, really driven and she knows what she wants, and she’s not afraid
to say that she’s good at something or that she messed up. She’s very, very open about that. So I think, “You know what? I can be more like that.” That actually drives me
to writing more songs and believing in myself, because if I mess up then I mess up, and it’s OK. I think what makes Brigitte a true hero is the decision she made
to actually join Reinhardt and Torbjörn, knowing that what she was doing was good, but it wasn’t enough,
and she could do more. That’s what makes her a true hero. Listen to Tracer.
The world could always use more heroes. My whole experience with the fans
all over the world has been insane, because it’s like I have friends
all over the world now. It’s impossible to fathom when you’re part of this huge thing that you were already a part of before. My name is Matilda Smedius, and this is My Hero Story.
