​GTA 5's Michael De Santa Actor Ned Luke Speaks About Fan Interactions and Steven Ogg in Recent Stream

It is no secret that Steven Ogg's character from GTA 5 became colossal after the title's launch in 2013. The psychopathic killer with a sense of humor quickly became a fan-favorite maniac. Steven Ogg successfully portrayed his acting and voice-over skills for Trevor which was critically acclaimed over the years.

 

​However, according to Steve, fans quickly started associating Trevor's character with the actor himself, making his entire identity as the criminally insane psychotic crime lord himself.

 

​In many interviews, Ogg has expressed deep resentment towards this practice, as he has repeatedly claimed that he is best known as Steven, the actor, and not Trevor from Grand Theft Auto 5. Ned Luke, his coworker from the same project has a different viewpoint on this, however. In his recent stream, Luke claimed the fans are the game and not Rockstar or the actors behind it.

 

​He also gave some advice to the actors, rumored Mani L. Perez (Lucia) and Bryan Zampella (Jason) on accepting their roles to the fans when they meet them. He also stated that they should be thankful to the fans as their fame will fortunately skyrocket after the title.

 

​He later added to his statement by mentioning Steven Ogg and saying that he 'resents' being called Trevor from GTA 5. On the flip side, he mentioned that if a fan ever approaches Ned, he would be grateful to take a picture with them.

 

"The reason why I have what I have is because I'm Michael."

 

​The actors for Lucia and Jason in GTA 6 haven't been officially confirmed by Rockstar Games. However, gamers have already drawn many speculations behind the cast. It is safe to assume that the actors will receive equal popularity after the title's launch.
