Stephen Russell is an actor who voiced various characters in Fallout 3 and its add-ons Operation: Anchorage and Broken Steel, Fallout 4 and its add-on Far Harbor, and Fallout 76 and its update Wastelanders. Most prominent among his roles are the Mister Handy robots throughout all three games, as well as companions Nick Valentine and Codsworth in Fallout 4.


Russell began his career as a theatre actor, though he entered voice acting in 1997 by auditioning for Thief: The Dark Project. He was cast as the protagonist, Garrett, and reprised the role in the next two entries in the series. He also voiced Karras, the chief antagonist of Thief II, as well as voicing some of the minor characters in the series. Russell additionally contributed the voice of the starship Von Braun's central computer XERXES and that of William Bedford Diego in Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios' ​System Shock 2. He has since become a popular figure in both communities. Russell also voiced over two dozen characters in Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, released in 2011.

Russell made his debut film appearances as Bob in the 2007 independent film Noëlle and as Luther Norris in the romantic comedy film The Golden Boys, released in 2008. He also played a minor role in the 2009 film The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

Some of Russell's more recent voice work includes Corvo Attano, the protagonist of the Dishonored series, who became fully voiced in Dishonored 2 (2016). He also voiced Dr. Sylvian Bellamy in Prey's 2017 reboot, as well as Cabirus in Underworld Ascendant (2018), a game developed by former Looking Glass Studios employees at OtherSide Entertainment.
