Last week, we reported that the voice actress behind Yugiri in Heavensward, Sian Blake, was found dead along with her two children.
Today, Naoki Yoshida and the English Localization staff have commented on her passing.
Yesterday, I received unfortunate news from the agency of British voice talent Sian Blake confirming the passing of Sian and her two children.
Sian was a gifted actress, her masterful portrayal of Yugiri leaving a lasting impression amongst our fans. I had hoped she would be with us for many more performances to come.
I am deeply saddened by this tragedy and offer to Sian and her children my sincerest prayers.
FINAL FANTASY XIV Producer & Director, Naoki Yoshida
There are no words to describe the shock and disbelief we felt upon hearing the tragic news about Sian Blake and her two young sons.
Though we only had the chance to work with Sian for a short time, we were glad to have such an accomplished and dedicated actress on the project. She brought life to a character dear to our hearts, and we will always be grateful for her contribution.
Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
