It became known that the role of AI Cortana in the showtime series Halo will be played by Jen Taylor – the permanent voice actress of the heroine in the games of the series. Initially, the role was supposed to be played by Natasha McElhone, but the actress had conflicts in her schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, McElhone will still appear on the show, but only as Dr. Catherine Halsey, the creator and prototype of artificial intelligence.
Details of the plot of the series Halo are still unknown. The main role in the adaptation will be played by Canadian actor Pablo Schreiber. He will embody the image of the Master Chief. In addition to Taylor and McElhone, Bokim Woodbine and Shabana Azmi will also play on the show.
The show was directed by Otto Bathurst. The start is scheduled for 2021. Filming has already resumed after a pause due to the coronavirus.
