Actress Victoria Atkin made her name in British soap Hollyoaks before moving into video game acting by playing Evie Frye in the phenomenally successful Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. And she stopped by FANDOM’s Comic-Con suite to offer tips and advice to budding actors.

Check out the above video, in which Atkin talks about playing a female assassin in Syndicate, how tough performance-capture can be, and the joys of working with just your imagination.

Atkin also offers this advice: “Take acting classes because it’s all about the same thing. If you can convey truth through a character, then they are going to employ you in whatever medium – whether you’re just using your voice as an instrument, or whether you are using your whole body.”
