You know Astarion and love Astarion as the sexy vampire in Baldur's Gate 3, but you might be surprised to learn that wasn't who he originally was.

During the Baldur's Gate 3 panel at London's MCM Comic Con earlier today, voice actor Beth Park revealed that the fan-favorite bloodsucker wasn't originally going to be a bloodsucker. But he was still going to be sexy.

Regardless, Astarion would've still been sexy - no matter what race he was.
