Deepfakes truly terrify me. There’s nothing quite like seeing an image that mashes your expectation with something entirely different, but a new viral deepfake has caught my attention for all the right reasons. YouTuber Jarkan has expertly placed actor Nathan Fillion into Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and the results are pretty spectacular.
For those who aren’t aware, Fillion starred in a 2018 Uncharted fan movie in which he played the hero of the series, Nathan Drake. Since then, fans have been crying out for Fillion to be cast in Sony’s official Uncharted movie (a role that’s since been given to Tom Holland).
In this massively popular Uncharted deepfake, Fillion from the fan movie replaces Drake in image only, still using the original lines from the games’ performance actor, Nolan North. The result is impressive, and it just goes to show what a fantastic Drake Fillion makes!
