Adetomiwa Edun gives his voice and face to the player “Alex Hunter” in the new FIFA17 The Journey story mode play.

Who is Alex Hunter?

Alex Hunter is a 17-year-old multiracial male from Clapham,London . Hunter's grandfather is former English striker Jim Hunter (20 goals in the 1966–67 season). Under his grandfather's guidance, Hunter has decided to play as a footballer in the Premier League the Journey.
The game will feature a new single-player story campaign mode titled The Journey for PS4, Xbox One and Windows where players assume the role of Alex Hunter, a young footballer trying to make his mark in the Premier League . The player will be able to select one of 20 Premier League clubs to play for at the beginning of the season. The player can play any position including goalkeeper. The story mode also features a dialogue wheel , similar to the Mass Effect series.
Hunter, a character inspired by the likes of Raheem Sterling and Andros Townsend, is thrust into the first team and finds himself in the same dressing room as superstar footballers.
At a recent hands-on event, I got to play this scene. In the demo provided by EA, Hunter had signed for Manchester United. We see him and close friend Gareth Walker, who has also signed for Man Utd, looking agog at their names on their shirts in the dressing room. They're proud, excited and scared.

Adetomiwa Edun is a British, Nigerian and Ghanaian actor best known for his roles as Sir Elyan in the television show Merlin and Alex Hunter in the football videogame FIFA 17 .

Early life

Edun was born in Lagos , Nigeria, to a Nigerian father and a half-Ghanaian , half- English mother. Edun moved to the United Kingdom at the age of 11. He attended Eton College from the age of 13, before reading Classics at Christ's College, Cambridge (University of Cambridge ). In his final year at Christ's College, he won the dissertation prize for his thesis on Homer's Odyssey . His father, a financier , encouraged Edun to enter
banking as a career, and he interned with Citigroup . He considered studying for a Master of Philosophy degree, but decided to attend the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) instead.
Career
In 2000, Edun appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival , as the character Clifford in the show Kassandra by Ivo Stourton . Edun attended RADA, appearing in several productions and graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Acting in 2008. Following his graduation from RADA, he played small parts in productions at the
Almeida Theatre and the Liverpool Playhouse .He also played
Macbeth in a production of the eponymous play by the National Theatre, earning praise for being "charismatic" and a "fine verse speaker". In 2009, Edun became only the second black actor to play Romeo at the Globe Theatre when he was cast in Dominic Dromgoole 's production of Romeo and Juliet. He also appeared in Slaves , a play by Rex Obano .
Edun has also appeared in several television shows. In 2009, he appeared in an episode of The Fixer , before a role in Law & Order: as a soldier returning from the war in Afghanistan . During
series three of Merlin, Edun appeared as Elyan in three episodes, and was upgraded to a recurring character in series four . Elyan was killed off during the fifth and final series of Merlin in 2012. In 2011, he appeared in two episodes of The Hour as the character Sey, and reprised the role for three episodes in 2012.
In FIFA 17 , Edun assisted the role of the fictional Alex Hunter as part of The Journey, a brand new story-based game mode introduced for this installment.

The Journey's story won't just take place on the pitch of course. Just like a real football career, you'll be part of all of the elements of Alex Hunter's career from panicking in his bedroom back at his Grandpa's house to travelling on private jets and seeing his name on the back of a shirt for the first time.

Wow!!! PS4 is expensive, I'd have loved to get one just cos of this game.

The story feel like this season film "Survivor's Remorse"

Same story of a rising Basketball Star... and his life off the pitch. If you think you're gonna love this one, then go checkout the movie too.
