  • Gunner Wright provides the updated likeness of Isaac Clarke in Dead Space 2, 3 and more closely in the 2023 remake. Prior to this, in the original Dead Space, Isaac's face was modeled after actor Max Shippee, with some of Shippee's features being carried over and mixed with Gunner's for Dead Space 2 and 3.[1]
  • Other protagonists such as Gabe Weller and John Carver share Wright's voice clips with Isaac on a few occasions. Such occasions include the melee voice effects (Gabe only) and the "firing voice" when the Hand Cannon and Devil Horns are used. Similarly, the Titan Security members in the multiplayer section of Dead Space 2 use Gunner's voice for screams and grunts.
  • Gunner Wright was born the second-youngest of six children.
  • Gunner Wright and Tanya Clarke have both had roles in All My Children.

Personal Quotes[]

  • "Riding motorcycles is in my blood. If I ever stop riding, I might as well stop breathing."
  • "Acting is very similar to racing. I would practice and practice but nothing could take the place of just racing. It's how you get better....faster. You can take all the acting classes in the world but there's nothing like being on a set. It's the best training there is."
  • "I was too chicken to be a stuntman so I became an actor. They are my heroes man."
