The tall vampire lady: who played Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village

A few months before the release of Resident Evil Village, fans of the series took notice of Alcina Dimitrescu, one of the villains in the game. She was remembered by the players due to her bright appearance and charismatic image: she had her own fans, who dedicated many fan arts, fanfiction, and memes to her.

The character’s popularity reached the point that Capcom made her the centerpiece of the Resident Evil Village ad campaign. That being said, the company did not publicly announce who played Lady Dimitrescu in the game. We decided to find out which actress performed this image.

The role of Lady Dimitrescu was played by Maggie Robertson: the actress told about this on her Twitter. At the same time, she registered an account only in February of this year, and in her profile, there are now only three tweets – and all are dedicated to the Resident Evil Village.

Robertson stated that she not only voiced Dimitrescu, but also recorded the movements for motion-capture in the image.

“Finally, we met …”. I am PLEASED to announce that I have voiced and played our beloved Lady Dimitrescu. It is such an honor to be a part of this game, and to embody the image of this huge, um, character.”

Maggie recently embarked on an acting career: according to IMDb, she only played her first film role in 2017, in Nothing to Do. In addition, the actress personally wrote her biography on this site. At the same time, her height is 183 centimeters – perhaps thanks to this she got the role of Dimitrescu.

Maggie Robertson began her career in regional theater in Washington DC. Her favorite roles and productions include Madame de la Grand Bush in Beauty and the Beast, Another Place by Sharr White and Dani’s Girl by Michael Koeman and Christopher Diamond.

She received her MA in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Maggie joined the ranks of other notable alumni such as Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelovo, Brian Cox, Ruth Wilson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and John Lithgow. After graduation, Maggie moved to Los Angeles and has since starred in various independent films.

Also Maggie is a talented singer and musician. She studied classical music before moving on to jazz, pop music and musical theater. Maggie plays guitar and can perform beatboxing.

Maggie has her own website with links to social networks and examples of her work, including voice recording. Among them is audio with imitation of the voice acting of Galadriel from “The Lord of the Rings”. At the same time, the actress indicated on the website that she had “the voice of a sophisticated and capable mother who knows her business … and her wine.”

The actress did not reveal exactly how she got the role of Lady Dimitrescu. One can only assume that the developers at Capcom were impressed by her voice, acting talent, and impressive growth.

Now on the net, you can find a video about the creation of the image of Lady Dimitrescu, in which you can see a recording of the movement of Maggie Robertson. The actress simultaneously voiced her character and played a role in a motion-capture studio.

It is not known for certain which actress gave Lady Dimitresku’s appearance: according to unverified information, the character’s face was recorded from the Polish model Helena Mankowska. But Capcom has not officially confirmed her participation in the game – so this is just speculation.

And Robertson herself, thanks to the role of Dimitrescu, gained certain popularity – almost four thousand people have already subscribed to her Twitter. Perhaps this will positively affect her career, and we will see Robertson in other games and films.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
