Nick Apostolides, who voiced Leon in 2019’s Resident Evil 2 Remake, has also posted a tribute to Haddad’s memory.
While Haddad did not appear in many other video games, he appeared in a host of other television shows and movies throughout his career, including work as Quicksilver in the original X-Men: The Animated Series and Mr. Fox from the children’s animated show Franklin.
Haddad did not go on to voice Leon in subsequent Resident Evil installments, but the character of course has become one of the most iconic from the franchise following that first appearance, most recently appearing in the Resident Evil 2 Remake.
