Ned Luke portrayed Michael, Shawn "Solo" Fonteno portrayed Franklin and Steven Ogg portrayed Trevor.During the initial audition process, Ogg noticed an on-set chemistry between him and Luke, which he felt helped secure them the roles.The game's characters were created by writers Dan Houser and Rupert Humphries.
The mission content is structured around the lead characters' efforts to plan and execute complicated heists to accrue wealth for themselves.
Rockstar North's 2013 open world action-adventure video game Grand Theft Auto V, published by Rockstar Games, deals with a trio of criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a corrupt government agency.
The game's use of three lead protagonists is a break from series tradition.
Houser said he felt that Grand Theft Auto V is their "strongest plotted game because the characters are so intertwined" and that the "meeting points [between the character's stories] are very exciting".
In gameplay, the three characters' differing personalities and qualities are intended to appeal to a broad spectrum of players, while offering players the option to learn more about the characters throughout the game.
