Videogame casting director Brigitte Burdine was killed in a hit-and-run accident Dec. 29 in Playa del Rey. She was 48.
Burdine rose to prominence in the male-dominated gaming industry via her casting abilities for voices in videogames. A casting agent since 1989, Burdine had worked on the popular “World of Warcraft,” “Mortal Kombat” and “SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs” series, as well as some work on “Guitar Hero” and “X-Men” games.
She had also done some voiceover and directing work on games, and she cast voiceovers for commercials, including for Honda and Toyota.
Burdine was walking home early Dec. 29 when she was struck by a dark sedan near the intersection of Culver Boulevard and Pershing Drive. The LAPD has no suspects; anyone with information can contact investigator Martha Dominguez at (213) 273-0234.
