Bandai Namco has disclosed that Victor’s voice is portrayed by actor Vincent Cassel. Cassel is renowned for his roles in films such as Black Swan, Ocean’s Twelve, and a live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
“Victor is actually the first French fighter for the TEKKEN franchise,” Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada wrote on X. “I have had the idea of a French character in my mind for a long time and it finally came to fruition.
“Thanks to Vincent Cassel for inspiring me and for voicing him. And the stage is Paris itself, where I took my first Seine River cruise over 20 years ago,” Harada concluded.
