Ask gamers about their top villains, and she's probably one of them: Irene Engel, the main antagonist of Wolfenstein II. She was a brilliant character brought to life with motion capture by the award-winning actress Nina Franoszek. At QUO VADIS 2019, Uke Bosse will host a fireside chat with Nina and Machine Game Creative Director Jens Matthies.

Furthermore the session she will give you insights about the intensive production and performance for a multi-layered character like Irene Engel.
