John Eric Bentley – the actor behind machinegun-armed party member Barret Wallace in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth – has dished on the character’s role in the upcoming sequel and his thoughts on the original’s depiction. 

When asked about his history with Barret and the world of Gaia, in an interview on the Square Enix website, the actor reveals he’s played the original. “I’m playing the game, and I’m like: ‘Oh, there’s a Black character!’ This is awesome – I’ve never seen a Black character in an RPG,” says Bentley. “And then I’m like: ‘Oh surely he’s about to die’ – and he didn’t! And I’m like: ‘Oh, I’m hooked!'”
