The Uncharted series is famous for its believable, emotionally engaging characters, and Naughty Dog is able to pull this off due to their amazing cast of actors who not only provide the voice work of their characters, but the motion capture as well.

Claudia and Emily, who play Chloe and Elena respectively in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, have fairly extensive TV resumés, and made an unexpected presence at E3 2009. Jeff was able to interview the lovely duo in the video included below, and if you’re not sure who’s who, don’t worry. Their voices (and looks) should give away which character they perform as.
