Voice and motion capture actor Neil Newbon, known to fans of Baldur’s Gate 3 as Astarion, is streaming a co-op let’s play of Baldur’s Gate 3 alongside friend and horror writer-director Tom de Ville. As they stream they laugh along to the game, and yeah, Newbon does The Astarion Voice a lot when he’s in control of, you know, the character he played in the game.

The most interesting bit is that Newbon’s definitely got some insight into how much of it was motion captured and acted—not just for his own role, either. Newbon also apparently did the motion capture for some other pieces of BG3, including the motions during the origin character creation sections. I plopped in some of those highlights as YouTube shorts below.
