Red Dead Redemption 2

Arthur Morgan actor had to re-record "intimate" horse lines

Roger Clark opened up on a panel about his first attempts at talking to a horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, which didn't sound too convincing.

One of the core reasons why people loved Red Dead Redemption 2 so much is because of the story, with Arthur Morgan brought to life by actor Roger Clark. He recently spoke about this experience during a panel at MomoCon (thanks, VG247), and it seems they had a tough time with some of the lines regarding Morgan's horse.

"A lot of the horse stuff was actually voice acting," Clark said on a panel. "I think I spent about two days in the booth doing that stuff. It was, you know, is Arthur's horse a mare or a stallion? Then there's different dialogue if you have a level four bonding than if you have a level one bonding - you're not quite as affectionate, etcetera."

"So we did that. A couple of weeks later, I come back in and one of our wonderful assistant directors, Gethin Aldous, says, 'Rog, we gotta do those horse lines again'. I was like, 'Why?' He said, 'Well, it's a little too intimate. It sounds like you're not talking to a horse'. I was like, 'What do you mean?' Then he played it back."

At around 16:30 in this video Clark illustrates what he means by that, and it's safe to say it doesn't exactly sound like a man talking to his horse.

Would you have preferred the original, just for comic effect?
