In a recent interview Wentworth Miller, who plays Chris Redfield in the forthcoming Resident Evil : Afterlife, revealed that he isn't a gamer and required the producers to create a montage of Chris Redfield moments to get to know the character he was playing.

The rest of the interview talks about his experience working on the film and other things. The full interview can be read at the link below.
