Nathan Fillion is totally on board for a 'Caydes 1 through 5' Destiny prequel

I knew i read it somewhere…

Nathan Fillion - who recently stunned us all with his incredible Uncharted fan movie - has revealed that Nolan ‘Nathan Drake’ North is the one playing Cayde-6 for the upcoming Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion.

“Unfortunately, sometimes these things don’t work out,” Fillion told Kotaku. “It’s a little bit heartbreaking, but if it has to go to somebody else, thank God it goes to someone who I absolutely love, and the fans love too. The character was in very good hands.”

He also questioned whether or not his robotic alter ego is really dead. “How do I feel about Cayde-6? I absolutely love him. How do I feel about that character dying? I don’t personally believe it. He’s a Guardian. He should be able to come back. I mean, that’s their whole thing, they come back, right? The whole thing is the resurrection.”

Bungie has said that yes, Cayde-6 is definitely dead, but on being updated with the news Fillion - ever the optimist - has a suggestion to keep the sarcastic spirit of his favorite character alive.

“In that case, my go-to would be, I’m really excited to work with Activision again and do the prequel of how we get to Caydes 1 through 5,” he said. “Cayde-6 prequel. That’s what we need to start talking about right now.”


Wow!!! I’d would like this so much

While I thought North did a serviceable job as Cayde, it was definitely off-putting to not hear Fillion in the role, particularly given that this is Cayde’s last appearance in the series (I assume).

Nolan Norths an amazing voice actor. Man has ridiculous range. But…Caydes Fillion. Maybe this was a friendly jab at Fillion since he was filming a uncharted fan film at the time.
