Sources have disputed recent claims by former Bayonetta voice actor Hellena Taylor, who said she was offered an âinsultingâ offer of just $4,000 dollars to reprise her role in the third game.
According to people with knowledge of the situation, as well as documentation reviewed by both Bloomberg and VGC, Platinum intended to rehire Taylor last summer.
This would have brought Taylorâs total fee to $15,000, Bloomberg reports, as VGC can corroborate via our own sources.
According to Bloomberg, the voice actor responded by asking for a six-figure sum as well as residuals on the game â a claim Taylor strongly denies.
In private messages exchanged with VGC, Taylor called the suggestion that she was offered more than $4,000 âcategorically untrueâ.
People with knowledge of Platinumâs negotiations indicated that they were aware Taylor had suffered depressive episodes in the past.
New Bayonetta voice actor Jennifer Hale released a statement directly addressing the controversy on Monday. »
