Michael Rudder, voice actor for video games such as Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell, was finally released from an Indian hospital yesterday after being shot during a terrorist attack in Mumbai last month.
Rudder was greeted by friends and family in his hometown of Montreal as he arrived at the Pierre Trudeau International Airport. Though still in a wheelchair, Rudder said he received a "great gift" from his experience, speaking to all the love and support he got from fans everywhere while hospitalized.
"I'm going to get a sign that says 'World's luckiest guy,'" a beaming Rudder said.
Rudder was shot three times, once in the stomach, arm and leg, and survived the attack by playing dead while laying in a pool a blood before escaping.
Rudder provided voice work for the games Far Cry Instincts, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Splinter Cell, Jagged Alliance 2, and Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games.
