At the 2024 BAFTA Awards, Baldur’s Gate iii won a total of five awards including Best Game, Best Narrative, Best Music, and Best Performer in a Supporting Role. 

It also took home the EE Game of the Year, which is the only award voted for by the general public. 

After the announcements, Alicia told us: "I knew when I was first asked to work on Baldur’s Gate iii it was special, but the game really knocked it out of the park at the BAFTAs. Thilled for Larian Studios."

Alicia started working professionally as an actor when she was still in full-time education at Brighton College and has enjoyed a varied career across stage and screen.

In 2018 her management hand-delivered her voice reel to a leading voice over agent who promptly signed her, and she began to build an extensive list of voice credits, including commercials, corporate, animation and audio books. She works in both her native British accent and also as an American voice.

A referral from a fellow voice artist led Alicia to accept an offer to join a team of voice directors on several video games - transporting her to the other side of the mic for the first time. She quickly cut her teeth directing on Jagged Alliance 3 and was then immediately thrown into the tremendous Dungeons & Dragons universe of Baldur’s Gate iii.

The release of this story-driven RPG, on Steam, last August, saw game developer Larian Studios hit 700,000 concurrent-players. Within hours it became one of Steam’s most successful games, globally. The cast includes OB, Glen McCready (Sc. 1985-87) in multiple roles.

This year Alicia also wrapped on the live-action movie, Blitz, for Apple TV (dir. Steve McQueen) and Garfield (animation movie) for Alcon Entertainment/ Columbia Pictures (dir. Mark Dindal). She is about to start recording for Games Workshop on their Warhammer franchise, as a voice actor.
