How a lucky fan became an Uncharted character

We all love to use our imaginations to insert ourselves into our favorite video games. Well, Jeremy “Spyder” Gallant won’t have to fantasize about being in Uncharted anymore.

Sony invited 16 fans from the U.S. and Europe to audition for the role of a new multiplayer character in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception at Naughty Dog’s studio in Los Angeles. They were judged by series writer and director Amy Hennig, Nathan Drake actor Nolan North, and Elena Fisher actor Emily Rose.

Jeremy impressed the trio with his parkour skills, earning himself a golden Nathan Drake trophy and a role that would make any Uncharted fan more envious than Victor Sullivan when he has to watch Drake hook up with all of the attractive, female co-stars.

Jeremy documented his experience in the video below, which offers us a cool, behind-the-scenes look at Naughty Dog.

You can also see his experience at Naughty Dog’s motion-capture studio here.
