The second audio promo of The Starriest Summer, with Patrick Seymour as Mayor Rayel and John Archer as Gediyon!
I had scouted Patrick for this part when I was doing the audiobook stuff back in the day. I had heard him do a drunken middle-aged man voice, and I really liked it because it was different from a lot of the characters he usually voices. He had auditioned for Gediyon, but ultimately I cast John in that role, but I still wanted to work with Patrick. There were a few silly moments during our recording session, because there was a pesky little rooster on his end :3
Auditions for Gediyon were hard, because he’s my favorite character and I’m so particular with him. I’m so happy how willing John was to help me bring this character to life, and I hope he continues to enjoy voicing this character as much as I loved writing him. Of course, Gediyon doesn’t have a lot of lines in this scene. I saved that for the next one 😉
