The entire core cast of Baldur's Gate 3 will come together to role-play their own characters in what I can only describe as the ultimate D&D session.
On Friday, September 22 at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 7pm BST, Mark Hulmes of the High Rollers D&D group will host the six actors behind Baldur's Gate 3's Origin characters for a tabletop session that appears to be sponsored by Larian Studios. We'll see Neil Newbon as Astarion, Devora Wilde as Lae'zel, Samantha Béart as Karlach, Tim Downie as Gale, Theo Solomon as Wyll, and Jennifer English as Shadowheart.
It seems that the session has already been recorded, judging by the brief clip below with the actors introducing their characters, but it's clear that we're in for a good time. With English introducing herself by referencing Shadowheart's best meme you know the vibes are gonna be just right for that special Dungeons & Dragons blend of earnest role-playing and extremely silly shenanigans.

Even before this D&D gathering, the main Baldur's Gate 3 cast members have been pretty proactive about sharing their love of the game. Béart's playthrough of Baldur's Gate 3 as Karlach is an absolute delight - almost as delightful as watching Newbon get killed by his own character after rolling a natural 1.
I spoke with Newbon last month - you can read a big chunk of that Baldur's Gate 3 conversation here - but in a few quotes that didn't make the published interview the actor made absolutely clear that he is and always has been a superfan of both D&D in general and Baldur's Gate in particular.
