Why Christopher Judge is the Perfect Fit for Kratos in the God of War TV Series
Christopher Judge has voiced Kratos for two games in a row now. And that’s not it, he also provided the motion capture for the character. Kratos’ poise, movements and facial expressions are directly taken from Judge’s enactment. The man carved a niche for himself as he made himself one of the best voice actors to ever grace a fictional character. And he’s got the accolades to back that up too.
Judge’s role in GOW Ragnarok got him the Best Performance at The Game Awards 2022. He also was a runner-up in 2018 when he lost to Roger Clark, the man who played Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2. If this isn’t enough to make Christopher Judge the best choice for the God of War TV series, then I don’t know what is.
An Unrivalled and Flawless Voice
“Ready yourself, boy” or “the cycle ends here”, these words are guaranteed to give goosebumps to millions of fans around the world. The sheer power behind Judge’s voice resonates with Kratos’ character as a whole. One of the reasons why players felt so connected to Kratos and the game’s story is due to Christopher Judge’s impactful voice. There is no other actor who could do justice to his one-in-a-million deep tone.

He knows Kratos Inside Out
Who else knows Kratos better than Christopher Judge? The man has immersed himself in the character for more than a decade and now understands Kratos deeply in the truest sense. From knowing the Greek God’s strained relationship with his father to his growing bond with Atreus – Judge knows what led Kratos to become who he is now. He has played the intricacies and nuances of Kratos so well that many feel that he has become one with the character itself.
Whether Amazon picks another character to play the role of Kratos or goes with Christopher Judge still remains to be seen. With high-caliber actors like Jason Momoa, Gerard Butler and Dwayne Johnson to compete, the fan-favorite Judge doesn’t have a straightforward way to stake his claim as Kratos.
To put it straight, for us, Christopher Judge is the best choice for the God of War TV series. That’s all we have for you. While you’re here, don’t forget to take a look at our GOW Ragnarok section right here on Gamer Tweak.
