The Merchant has always been an important character in Resident Evil 4, and you may wonder who the voice actor is for Capcom’s 2023 remake. The character is missing some iconic lines from the original game here, but that’s not all you might notice. In the original 2005 version of the game, the Merchant was voiced by Paul Mercier, who also voiced Leon S. Kennedy. However, in the RE4 remake, Leon and the Merchant don’t share a voice actor.
Who Voices the Merchant in RE4 Remake?
Michael Adamthwaite fills the role of voice actor for the Merchant in the Resident Evil 4 remake. This isn’t Adamthwaite’s first time doing voice work, and you may have heard him in New Tales from the Borderlands as Tediore Grunt or as Luca in War for the Planet of the Apes.
Capcom made changes to many characters in RE4 remake, and the Merchant wasn’t exempt from receiving updates. One of the smaller details is that the Merchant can no longer be killed, which reinforces his status as a character important to the story.
The Merchant Adamthwaite voices might be different from the original character, but the changes made to the character in combination with a new voice actor portraying him fit the new, darker feeling of Resident Evil 4 remake.
