War. War never changes.”— Ron Perlman, Fallout
Ron Perlman (born April 13, 1950) is a screen actor as well as voice actor, with much work in both disciplines. He has worked on five Fallout games to date.
Perlman narrated Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout: New Vegas. The intro narration in each of these games starts with the line "War. War never changes." He also provided the voice for Butch Harris in Fallout. In Fallout 4, he appears in the prologue of the game, voicing a newscaster on the day of the Great War.
Perlman was born in Washington Heights, New York. His mother, Dorothy, is a municipal employee, and his father is a jazz drummer and repairman. Perlman is Jewish. He has been married to Opal Perlman since February 14, 1981 and he has two children, Blake Amanda (born 1984), and Brandon Avery (born 1990).
He attended George Washington High School and later Lehman College in New York City in 1971, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater. He also attended the University of Minnesota, where he graduated with a master's degree in theater arts. Perlman has volunteered as an actor with the Young Storytellers Program.
Perlman made his feature film debut in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film Quest for Fire (1981). After various minor and supporting roles in films and television series, his breakthrough role came when he played Vincent in the TV series Beauty and the Beast, opposite Linda Hamilton from 1987 to 1990. This earned him a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series in 1989 and a large fan base.
He went on to play roles in many films and television series throughout the 1980s and 1990s as well as the 2000s. His most notable role among these was that of Hellboy in the adaptation of the comic books of the same name. As well as onscreen acting, Perlman has lent his voice to numerous video games and animated series.
He is known for playing roles which require make-up, some to the point where his entire body is covered or his face requires full facial prosthetics, such as The Beauty and The Beast, where he plays a man with the face of a half-man half-lion-like beast, The Island of Dr. Moreau where he plays a half man/half animal and the Hellboy films where he plays a demon.
