Anthony Skordi Is Playing Admiral Versio In 'Star Wars Battlefront II'

By: Benjamin Hart

In the wake of all the stunning reveals from Star Wars Battlefront II last weekend at EA Play, we now have yet another casting confirmation for the highly anticipated game. Near the end of the newly revealed gameplay trailer, we get a few new glimpses the game's main protagonist, and leader of Inferno Squad, Iden Versio, played by Janina Gavankar. Iden has a rich backstory within Star Wars canon, one which includes her father, Admiral Garrick Versio(above, right).

Although Admiral Versio has been mentioned previously, in the trailer we also get our first look at the character alongside his daughter. Adding to the excitement, we now know the actor behind the Admiral. On Twitter, actor Anthony Skordi announced that he is playing the elder Versio:

Skordi is a seasoned actor who has appeared in several television series, including The Blast List, The Last Ship, and others. He has also worked on a number of video games before, including the Call of Duty Franchise, Mass Effect, and Skyrim. It exciting to have him finally join the Star Wars universe as Admiral Garrick Versio!
