Charlie Kraslavsky, the actor that played Chris Redfield in Resident Evil's live-action cutscenes, is reprising the iconic role after 26 years.
Some of these original live-action Resident Evil actors are reprising their iconic roles for the first time since 1996, in a fan film that is reportedly titled The Keeper. Very little is known about the project other than it is based on the world of Resident Evil, and that three actors from the original 1996 game are reprising their roles for it. These actors are Charlie Kraslavsky, Greg Smith, and Eric Pirius, who play Chris Redfield, Barry Burton, and Albert Wesker respectively.
Some on set photographs gives fans a look at Charlie wearing Chris’s BSAA gear and looking a lot more modern than in his 1996 Chris outfit. The Keeper from the reported title references the Keeper's Diary from the first Resident Evil, from which the iconic “Itchy, Tasty” line derives. But there is some confusion as to which Resident Evil fan film, if any, these photos are from, as there are actually two RE fan films in development titled The Keeper.
Charlie Kraslavsky has confirmed that the elusive project will be uploaded to YouTube in the next few weeks, and it will surely bring a rush of nostalgia back for original 1996 Resident Evil fans. Many fans have also sent the on set photographs to the makers of Netflix’s upcoming Resident Evil series in the hopes of securing a cameo for these original S.T.A.R.S. members.
