Gemma Atkinson For Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3

according to a recent press release, British soap opera star Gemma Atkinson will be lending her voice to the highly anticipated third installment in the Command and Conquer RTS franchise, Red Alert 3.

If you follow the soap opera scene overseas, you may recall that Gemma played the character Lisa Hunter on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks and two spin-off series Holyoaks: Let it Loose, and Hollyoaks: In the City. If she still does not ring a bell to you, you may have seen her on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! or have perhaps seen her spreads in different media as a fashion and lingerie model.

Making her videogame acting debut, Gemma will play Lt. Eva McKenna, a  military officer with a sexy twinkle in her eye and a British stiff upper lip. Eva is a communications officer for the Allied coalition in their fight against the Soviet and Rising Sun superpowers who made her first appearance in Command & Conquer Red Alert 2.

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 takes place in an alternate time line and imagines what would have happened if time travel had been used by both Albert Einstein and the Soviet Union, and features an epic global confrontation with you at the controls of your chosen faction.

Gemma seems pretty excited over her gig as a voice actor in a videogame, which you can discern from her quote in the press release:

“I’m a gamer and the chance to act in one of the best loved videogames was an opportunity I was really keen to explore – especially as Eva is such a strong female character. The worlds of gaming and film are getting ever closer and as an actress I wanted to explore this exciting new area of drama, broaden my acting skills and continue the active, outgoing side of my personality that I showed in I’m A Celebrity…”

To celebrate her new found voice acting talent, Gemma will be meeting fans and promoting her role in EA’s upcoming Red Alert 3 at Multiplay’s M Festival (the UK’s largest electronic games festival) on the afternoon of August 8. If you are a subscriber to Zoo magazine, the newest issue will feature a full interview with Gemma as well as her photo shoot in the guise of her Red Alert 3 character, Lt Eva McKenna.
