The well-known voice actress has many roles including Black Widow in Marvel’s Avengers and Abby from The Last of Us Part 2. Most people know her only from the many roles she played in Critical role.
Laura will now bring her dynamic voice to play the Sniper in COD vanguard.
Who is Polina Petrova, and what are her responsibilities?
Polina was born and raised in Stalingrad. She is a soldier by necessity to defend her country. Growing up in Stalingrad, she was a successful hunter and a happy child. When war broke out, Polina became a victim of the brutal Axis invasion Operation Barbarossa. She uses her talents to seek revenge and vengeance for everything she and her community have lost.
Polina speaks clearly and with focus. Polina is not one for all and prefers to be alone. She only opens up to people she trusts and values.
Was Polina Petrova a real person?
Polina is fictional, but the character was inspired by a brilliant and real sniper. Lyudmila Pavlichenko, a Soviet Sniper serving in the Red Army during WW2, was Lyudmila Pavlichenko. She was the most successful female sniper in recorded historical history, with 309 confirmed kills.
Pavlichenko was one of the first volunteers to the Odessa recruitment office. She requested to join the infantry. She was initially encouraged to become a nurse but she completed several training courses and became a skilled sniper. She was one of only 500 female snipers who survived the war in the Red Army.
1941: A fallen comrade gave her his bolt-action rifle and she took her first two life. She proved herself to her comrades.
She recorded 187 kills over a period of two and a quarter months. She was promoted to Senior Sergeant and confirmed 100 more kills.
She married Alexei Kitsenko, a fellow sniper at the age of 25. Alexei, however, was mortally injured by a mortal shell shortly after her marriage and died in hospital.
Later, she trained other snipers for the Red Army. She was credited with 309 confirmed kills in WW2, including 36 Axis-snipers. She faced 36 other snipers who were aiming at her and won.
Later, Lady Death was given to her.
Lyudmila Pavlichenko won’t be seeing a film adaptation of her story in the next few years. I’ll be sure riot. It is a story worth sharing about her bravery, strength, and brilliance. Pavlichenko proved that anyone who claims that having a female sniper in COD is historical inaccurate is wrong.
