A Half-Life 2 mod brought a Star Fox voice actor out of retirement

A Half-Life 2 mod has managed to bring back Star Fox voice actor Estelle Ellis, who played Krystal in Star Fox Adventures, and hasn’t done any acting since 2005.

Half-Life 2 is a pretty good game, sure, but the most common criticism about the Valve developed title is that there just aren’t enough hot blue foxes in the game, which is absolutely the truth.
