Nicolas Roye is Apex Legends’ Octane, at least in voice. The voice actor gives life to the adrenaline junkie as he bounds around Kings Canyon on his prosthetic limbs. Here’s what you need to know about the actor behind the voice, Roye himself.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.

Nicolas Roye’s acting credits stretch as far back as 1992, when he received his first voice role as Shingo Tsukino in the English dub of “Sailor Moon.” He spent three years on that show before moving on to try his hand at acting on-screen.
He performed several small, often uncredited parts in TV series and films throughout the 1990s. He also appeared on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2003 and twice on Malcolm in the Middle in 2004.
Roye took his first role in a game as Javez in 2010’s APB: All Points Bulletin. He followed that up with Mafia II that same year, in which he played Pietro DiMarco. Since then he’s had roles in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, Halo 4, Hitman: Absolution, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Smite and more. He’s also returned to anime, reprising his role as Shingo Tsukino in “Sailor Moon Crystal” and playing Shisui Uchiha in “Naruto: Shippuden.”
Roye has voiced Octane since the character’s first appearance in Apex Legends in 2019.
