Voice acting and video games's got a blurb about theater/voice artist Jen Taylor, who voice's the cahracter Cortana in Halo -- one of the biggest video game franchises out there -- and she's back for Halo 3.

They grouse about the $500 she got for the first Halo, and "twice-that-in-half-the-time-so-the-same" in Halo 2.

Hopefully, Ms. Taylor's getting scale. But voice actors generally don't get residuals and royalties on video games.

For a lot of us, (in when scale's negotiated) it's a well-paying job in a field we love.

As a fan of the franchise (and more of a fan of good story in games), I'm hoping this quote bodes well for deeper story in the trilogy's wrap-up:
"There's a lot more drama and a lot less technical jargon this time around. I actually just finished a couple of lines that nearly had me in tears. For an actor, more drama is always good."
