Steven Ogg, the actor behind GTA 5’s Trevor, has lashed out at a fan who asked him to record a message warning GTA 6’s protagonists about the dangers of Vice City.
Loved by fans for his crazy, psychotic and unhinged nature, Trevor Phillips can be considered one of the best protagonists in gaming history.
Actor Steven Ogg played a memorable character role in Grand Theft Auto 5 and even returned to play Trevor in additional GTA Online content.
However, a GTA fan shared an unpleasant experience with the actor where they received an “annoyed” and “swearing” video from Ogg after paying for a Cameo video.
Trevor Phillips is one of the main protagonists in GTA 5
YouTube creator Hugo One posted a video on October 5 in which he used Cameo to contact the actor to try to establish a connection between GTA 5 and GTA 6. However, the response was not exactly what he expected.
The YouTuber revealed that he’s already used his services for another Grand Theft Auto request in the past, requesting Ogg to play in Trevor’s character and tell rumored GTA 6 protagonists Jason and Lucia to be careful in Vice. City.
The YouTuber also asked to warn the protagonists to beware of the police in Port Gellhorn, a leaked neighborhood in the city, and to tell them that he [Trevor] might see them out there, also commenting “feel free to be crazy.”
After setting the creator back $140, Ogg sent the video, which the YouTuber described as annoyed and abusive. “He wanted me to give you this message from Trevor, which of course isn’t Trevor. My name is Steven. And I’m an actor.
“So I understand it in a way, and I don’t understand it in a great way either, you know what I mean by that? Because as actors you’re portraying different characters and it would be literally impossible for me to be a cartoon,” he said. “I mean literally impossible for me to be a cartoon, I can’t be.”
“I have to get that off my chest. I just don’t understand sometimes. I get it and I don’t get it, right.”
Steven went on and finally got to the message that was being requested. “Hugo wanted to make sure you both be careful in Vice City,” he said, before going off the script.
“Vice City, I don’t know what that is. I think maybe it’s part of the GTA thing? Anyway, it’s dangerous there. Beware of the police in Port Gellhorn – I don’t understand that reference. And I’ll see you there, because I’m a cartoon, right?”
Hugo One shared it with his followers, explaining how he felt like the actor came across as “pretty the d**k” and must have taken the request as some sort of insult to him as an actor.
Nevertheless, the video has since caught the attention of the Grand Theft Auto community, which has shown a wave of support for the YouTuber.
