Mímir, Alfred Pennyworth
Born in Edinburgh and raised in Glasgow, Scotland Alastair Duncan studied science at Dundee University and then drama at Queen Margaret University. His first major television role was as DS Peter Livingstone in “Taggart”, Scottish television’s eponymous detective series. After the first three series he moved to London, guest-starring in a variety of British television series, including the television adaptation of “The Hound of the Baskervilles”, with Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes. Appearing in the 1992 science fiction film “Split Second”, alongside Rutger Hauer, inspired Alastair to move to Los Angeles where he continued with a wide variety of guest-starring roles on television series and appeared in films such as David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”.
In the early 2000s, he started working in animation, playing Alfred in “The Batman” series, and 9 subsequent movies and video games, and Vulture in the most recent television version of “Spider-Man”. This led him into the world of video games where he played Celebrimbor, the creator of the rings of power in the Lord of the Rings games “Shadow of Mordor” and “Shadow of War”, Senator Armstrong in “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance”, and most recently, Mimir, the smartest man in the world in “God of War” and “God of War Ragnarok”.
