Is This The New Voice Of Starcraft II's Kerrigan?

Glynnis Talken Campbell, the original voice of StarCraft's Sarah Kerrigan, Queen of the Blades, lent her famous pipes for the StarCraft II reveal trailer at BlizzCon 2008, but ultimately the actress will not be voicing the villain for the game.

According to Campbell, the voice work done in that trailer was considered an audition for the role, and Blizzard has decided to go in another direction.

Voice actress Karen Strassman has updated her resume and added "StarCraft II - Lead" to it. More importantly, the end of her voice clip reel has this moody line: "For I am Kerrigan, Queen of Blades". Listen to the clip here.

We are contacting Blizzard and will update if we get confirmation.

    "According to Campbell, the voice work done in that trailer was considered an audition for the role, "

    Huh? The fact she did the entire game of Starcraft (and Brood War) wasn't good enough?

    Hmm, dunno, lisetning to that voice clip I still think Campbell does a better job. Strassman doesn't sound as evil in my opinion. Wonder what the heck possessed Blizzard to switch.

    Money could've been a defining factor. Glynnis could've pulled the ol' "I am the voice of Kerrigan, so you'll pay me what I want to be paid to do Kerrigan's voice in the sequel". If that's the case (and note that's a big IF), I'd probably tell her where to stick it too.

    Or, they could've just wanted to go a different way. How would I know?
