“Kristen Bell is a talented actress that brought the depth and emotion necessary for the mysterious role of Lucy for the first Assassin’s Creed video game. She breathed life into her character in a way that deepened the gaming experience,” said Patrice Desilets, creative director for Assassin’s Creed II. “She did such a fantastic job for this character that, for me, Kristen Bell is Lucy Stillman and no one else can play that role.”
“Being a part of the first Assassin’s Creed video game was an amazing experience. Video games is such a creative entertainment medium, and to be able to see and play myself as a video game character was surreal,” said Kristen Bell. “As an actress, it’s both challenging and rewarding to play a complex character with this great mysterious background. I’m very happy to be Lucy once more, and I look forward to fans discovering more about her - they will be pleasantly surprised.”
