Voice Acting and Voice Actor Appreciation Thread

Just some questions for you forum folks:

How do YOU peeps feel about voice acting? To me, I like it better than live action because people can’t see you (Quoted from Mark Hamill)

And now to the second question:

Who are you’re favorite voice actors? If you don’t know where to find them you can find a list of actors/characters they voiced here here: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/

My personal favorites:

Matthew Russel Wood
(Known to me as General Grievous)

Tara Strong
(Known to me as Harley Quinn)

Chris Jai Alex
(Known to me as Tusk, Lord Boros)

Mark Hamill
(Known to me as Joker, Kavaxas)

Steve Blum
(Known to me as Wolverine and Starscream)

Now your turn! GO!

Rob Paulsen
Stephanie Lemelin (Artemis from Young Justice and Sunset Overdrive female lead)
Yuri Lowenthal (SO’s male lead, Sasuke from the Englosh dub of Naruto, The Prince from the first two Prince of Persias of the 2000s)
James Avery (though he may not have quite a career in it, he’ll always be the first Shredder in my mind)
Kevin Michael Richardson (the most recent Shredder, also in several other roles, I am a huge fan of his deep villainous voice)
And almost every Japanese voice actor ever,
Kazuhiko Inoue (Naruto’s Kakashi Hatake)
Masaaki Tsukada (Bleach’s Commander General)
Akio Otsuka (Venom Snake/Big Boss from MGSV: The Phantom Pain)
And so many more that I genuinely cannot name but know by their voices.

Great stuff here folks!

Just letting you know :smiley:

Its flynn since that is his voice. Troy doesn’t sound like that.

Have you watched the games credits. They credit shinnok’a voice to Troy baker.

No it’s troy baker. Even says so in his profile.

In MKX he was the voice of Erron black, fujin AND shinnok.

The man is talented and has a wide range of voicing.

Ok just saw the list it is troy.

I think this video sums up voice acting in fighting games pretty well.


Yeah, I wanna be a voice actor.

I am woefully disappointed noone has mentioned Frank Welker yet. I would mention stuff he’s done voice work for, but in all honesty it’s easier to make a list of things he hasn’t done.
