Laszlo Cravensworth Joins Baldur’s Gate 3 in the Vampiric Crossover We Didn’t Know We Needed

Astarion from Baldur's Gate 3 and Laszlo Cravensworth what What We Do in the Shadows

Ever wondered what it’d be like if the worlds of Baldur’s Gate 3 and What We Do in the Shadows collided? Us neither, but a short video which replaces Astarion with Laszlo Cravensworth has us grinning with glee.

It’s the work of voice-actor Ben Kearns known, amongst other things, for his impressions of Matt Berry in his various roles. It’s a remarkably convincing performance, to the point that you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference.

Kearns has previously lent his Matt Berry impression to this awesome Doctor Who video and while this new clip may not be as visually striking, it’s got our imaginations working overtime. This time around, he’s read some of Astarion’s Baldur’s Gate 3 lines as Lazlo from What We Do in the Shadows.

It’s absolutely brilliant and while Neil Newbon steals the show as Astarion, we’d pay good money for Kearns to team up with Newbon for some kind of vampire-off. Whether that would entail Baldur’s Gate 3’s Astarion turning up in What We Do in the Shadow or vice-versa, we don’t much care. It’s the interplay between them that would be solid gold, and we are 100% here for that.

You can follow Kearns on Twitter here and if you’ve yet to delve into Baldur’s Gate 3, this award-winning RPG is out now, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
