Bayonetta 3: the scandal takes an unexpected turn

Bayonetta 3 has not finished talking. New information brings a completely different version of the controversy initiated by actress Hellena Taylor.

For the past few days, Bayonetta 3 has been in the news, but for the wrong reasons. Hellena Taylor, the original actress of the witch, accuses PlatinumGames of having offered her a much too low salary, hence her refusal to return for this third opus. But the truth seems elsewhere…

The Bayonetta 3 actress would have fixed reality

Hellana Taylor, the voice of the witch, will not return in Bayonetta 3. An absence that recently turned into a scandal at the initiative of the actress. In videos, viewed more than 9.5 million times, the latter denounces the ridiculous offer made to her, that is to say a salary of $ 4,000 to record all the dialogues of the new game.

It’s an insult to my person, with the time I took to work, my talent, to everything I gave to the game and to the fans. I wasn’t asking for the moon, I wasn’t asking for too much, just a fair and dignified salary. What they did is legal, but immoral.

But we are now witnessing a reversal of the situation. According to the sources of very serious journalist Jason Schreier (via Bloomberg), this figure is far from the truth. Indeed, PlatinumGames would have offered between 3000 and 4000$… but per recording session. The Japanese studio would have needed her at least five times, or at least an overall salary of $15,000, which is no longer quite the same thing.

An amount that would not have been satisfactory for the actress. She would have demanded a six-figure sum, plus profits on the sales of Bayonetta 3. The studio would therefore have refused and initiated the process to cast another voice, that of Jennifer Hale (MGS) who came out of her silence.

Following this, PlatinumGames would have tried to cut the pear in half with a cameo paid between $3,000 and $4,000, the price of a session, which Hellena Taylor would have again rejected.

Hellena Taylor’s response

Faced with these new allegations, corroborated by the sources of VGCactress Hellana Taylor believes that this is all a “absolute lie”. She adds that PlatinumGames would just try to “save his ass and the game”before declaring:

Quite frankly, I would like to put this damn frankness behind me, and continue the theater.

According to people close to the case, Hellana Taylor would have experienced several complicated situations such as depressive episodes, which she refutes.
