While Tangsakyuen’s role as the Overwatch 2 Lifeweaver voice actor is his first time playing a part in a video game, he’s been acting since 2014. Some of his more recent roles include Pi in Fish upon the Sky, Wifi in My Bubble Tea, and Nuengdiao Kiattrakulmethee in Never Let Me Go.
As for why there will be dialogues between Tangsakyuen’s Lifeweaver and Anjali Bhimani’s Symmetra, it is because the two characters know each other in-game. Both use bio-light, with the Vishkar corporation attempting to take his invention. The two also apparently went to school with each other.
Overwatch 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC, and Season 4 begins on April 11, 2023 and brings Lifeweaver with it. There will also be an event to go along with his debut running until April 24, 2023.
