Skyrim: Best Celebrity Follower & Preset Mods (All Free)This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
When I was growing up, games with real-life celebrities were few and far between. They were also terrible most of the time.
(I’m looking at you, 50 Cent: Bulletproof)
Nowadays people can jump into Fortnite as Ariana Grande to shoot it out against J Balvin while LeBron James and Neymar Jr. floss in the background.
Times have changed, that’s for sure.
What hasn’t changed is people’s love for celebrities – and even Skyrim players have their favorites.
There may not be an official DLC featuring Ed Sheeran or Zendaya for Skyrim Anniversary Edition, but here are some great mods to add your idols into the game.
1. Megan Fox Follower
Back when I was a teen, my peers used to think Megan Fox was the definition of sexy.
Honestly, that had more to do with seeing her in Transformers (2007) than being any hotter than countless other Hollywood actresses.
For those of you who’ve fallen in love with Fox at any point in her career, this Megan Fox follower is a must-have Skyrim add-on.
It captures the beauty of the famous actress when she portrayed April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014).
My favorite part of this mod is this follower’s combat style, which relies heavily on summoning a Dwemer Autobot to protect her. Nice reference!
2. CHARMED Celeb Preset Pack
American fantasy drama series CHARMED brought together a secret world of magic with modern-day San Francisco, starring three of the hottest celebrities in TV: Alyssa Milano as Phoebe, Holly Marie Combs as Piper, and Shannen Doherty as Prue.
The whole thing was a nerd’s dream.
This mod brings The Charmed Ones to Skyrim – but there’s a catch.
These are actually RaceMenu presets and not followers.
They’re made so you can play as the girls instead of having them follow you around.
And this means you’ll have to put in some work with Project Proteus to make them into followers.
Don’t worry – it isn’t hard, and it’s 100% worth it!
3. Cara Delevingne Preset
Another incredible artist who’s had her likeness immortalized as a Skyrim RaceMenu preset is the multi-talented Cara Delevingne.
Everyone knows Cara from somewhere different.
Maybe you’ve seen her modeling for Victoria’s Secret or spotted her as the Enchantress in Suicide Squad (2016). You may have even seen her as Laureline on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017).
Whatever the case, she’s hard to forget once you’ve taken notice.
If she can juggle being a model, a fashion designer, and an actress simultaneously, I’m sure slaying dragons will be a piece of cake.
4. Jennifer Lawrence / Katniss Everdeen Voiced Follower
So far, we’ve covered actresses out-of-character – but in a place like Tamriel, some survival skills picked up from a role in a fantasy flick can go a long way.
Jennifer Lawrence arrives in Skyrim wearing her Katniss Everdeen persona from The Hunger Games movie series.
She’s got a tight black battlesuit, a bad-ass bow, and enough arrows to bring Panem’s population down to the single digits.
What surprised me the most about this mod is the custom voice, which was pieced together from several dialogue clips from the Hunger Games films.
It must have been a ton of work for modder bchick3 – but it’s a game-changer in immersion.
5. Game of Thrones Celeb Preset Pack
Next up, we’ve got a pack with some of the most popular Game of Thrones ladies.
This pack features presets matching:
- Lena Headey as Cersei
- Sophie Turner as Sansa
- Maisie Williams as Arya
- Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen
I can’t say much about Arya – after all, Maisie has a hard-to-emulate face. But the rest of the girls look just like their real-life counterparts.
Emilia Clarke looks exceptionally lifelike.
If I had to choose just one, I’d take the Khaleesi along on my journeys.
You’ll also find a second pack featuring Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell and Carice van Houten as Melisandre right here.
And these characters blend perfectly with some other GoT-themed mods too.
6. FRIENDS Celeb Preset Pack
Friends is one of those shows that people refuse to forget about.
As a Millenial, you’ll be shunned by your peers if you haven’t watched at least one season – and most people you know are on their third rewatch by now.
I’m not a big fan of rewatching shows. But I’m happy to reconnect with Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe in Skyrim with this Friends preset pack.
Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow look pretty good, but the mod’s star is the stunningly lifelike Courteney Cox.
That jawline! Those cheekbones! It’s a work of art.
7. Taylor Swift Preset
Swifties rejoice – Taylor Swift has just disembarked in Solitude, and Skyrim has a new queen.
Tickets are available at a General Goods shop near you!
When I say “Swifties,” I’m also talking about myself. I’m not usually into pop songs, but something about Taylor Swift’s irreverent persona gets me going.
If she was leading the Stormcloaks, I’d have joined a long time ago.
The one thing missing from this mod is a custom voice, and maybe some songs to play at the inn. There’s a great mod idea if anyone knows how to tweak followers!
8. Courageous Women of Skyrim – Celebrity Edition
I like it when my followers look fierce.
They’ll be crossing swords with Dremora and Master Vampires at some point, and I want to feel the person holding them off while I cast spells or shoot arrows has them under control.
Courageous Women of Skyrim Celebrity Edition is a follower and preset pack inspired by some prominent names in film and entertainment.
It focuses on making the girls look like true warriors to fit in better in Skyrim.
Actresses Angelina Jolie, Emma Watson, Eva Longoria, Mila Jovovich, and Scarlett Johansson are ready to go on an epic adventure.
They even have their own distinctive fighting styles!
Plus they’re joined by famous musician Rihanna, which officially makes this one of the most badass mods ever made.
9. Shirley Curry – A Skyrim Follower Mod
How many fans do you need to become a celebrity?
Notorious Skyrim grandma Shirley Curry is on the verge of breaking the one million mark on her YouTube.
If a million followers don’t make you a celebrity, the bar is set too high.
With her unmistakable “hello grandkids” at the beginning of each video, she has melted the hearts of thousands – and led a team of modders to create a custom-voiced follower inspired by her.
This is easily the highest-quality mod on our list. And you just can’t beat taking grandma along for the ride.
At 85+ years old, she’s still strong enough to cut trolls down with ease. What’s your excuse?
10. Celebrities for Fun – Definitive Edition
When you don’t know what celebrity to cast for your next Skyrim adventure, what do you do?
You cast them all!
Celebrities for Fun gets a genuine recommendation in our ranking for its sheer number of presets.
This massive collection features 16 beautifully-modeled celebs, including Natalie Portman, Amber Heard, Monica Bellucci, and even actress Priyanka Chopra.
