Robin Sachs, The Voice Of Zaeed Massani In Mass Effect 3, Dies Aged 62

Robin Sachs was best known for his role in the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but he also had an extended video game voice acting resume, playing Zaeed Massani alongside multiple other characters in the Mass Effect series. We've just heard the tragic news that he passed away yesterday, unexpectedly, on his 62nd birthday.

The following statement came from Robin's official fansite.

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Robin Sachs. Please join us in raising a glass to Robin – goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much.


    I never even had Zaeed as a companion. Ever. I barely even know about the character.

    I feel kind of bad, now.

    Just a note, his actual date of death remains unconfirmed. Some sources are claiming he died as early as the 1st.

      Yep, Most say the first. This article is just stating he died though and does not specify a date.

      Still very sad.

    Holy hell. This is terrible news - he did some very good voice acting for Dragon Age and some of the other Bioware games.

    But Zaeed was definitely the best. I thought of him as a kind of Boba Fett for a darker galaxy, and Sachs did a really fascinating job of vocalising him.

    Sad news. One of my Favourite characters in the Mass Effect series and he did a good job in DA:O too.

    What caused his demise?

    And one day, he wasn't the only one that made it out alive.

    May he rest in peace.
