In a tweet last month, she recollected her involvement with the character at the time of the recording sessions,
“Voicing Lilith in Diablo IV was a thrill and privilege. I would run to @LiquidVioletUK to get in the booth & delve into her.”
She alludes to Liquid Violet here, which is a London-based studio where a lot of the audio work for Diablo 4 was done.
While her previous work may have flown under the radar, Faber’s role as Lilith is likely to become her defining moment, solidifying her presence in the gaming industry. It remains to be seen what’s next for her after Diablo 4.
