Kevin Michael Richardson (October 25, 1964) is an American voice actor and actor, prominent in the field. For Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Richardson recorded the dialogue for the starting player character Cyrus, non-player characters Blake and Soldier, and the non-player character enemies Ghoul High Priest and Mutant grunt.[1] He also was a member of the cast of Fallout Tactics, but the character or characters he portrayed were not listed in the game's credits.


A classically-trained actor, Richardson first gained recognition as one of only eight U.S. high school students selected for the National Foundation for the Arts' "Arts '82" program. As a result of this he earned a scholarship to Syracuse University and a spot on a PBS special directed by the esteemed late John Houseman.

Richardson was married in May 2006. Currently he and his wife, Monica, live in Los Angeles with her two sons from a previous marriage, Anthony and Michael. A New York State native, Richardson was excited to return to work in Manhattan.

Behind the scenes

Richardson is known for his deep voice; often portraying villains. Cyrus was a departure from this norm; Ghoul High Priest followed it. The whole of his Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel work was also a radical departure from any characters bearing resemblances to comedian Bill Cosby, whom he has played on Family Guy and The Boondocks,
