Thanks to everyone who tuned in & participated in our chat with Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt! If you missed it (or you just want to see it again), we’ve got the complete replay for you (45 minutes):
Yuri & Tara are a powerhouse husband-and-wife team! Their professional credits are so numerous, let’s save time and say that if you play video games, or watch TV, or live on Earth, you’ve heard both of them many, many times.
To give you just an inkling of their work: Tara has done voice roles for shows like Ben Ten: Alien Force, Naruto, and Legion of Superheroes. She’s also a busy on-camera actress, with a ton of TV and film appearances — including Gilmore Girls, and most recently, Parenthood.
Yuri is a much-in-demand actor — he played Christopher Garvin on Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, and he’s the voice of Superman on Legion of Superheroes. You can also hear Yuri on the new X-Men animated series, as well as Cartoon Network’s Afro Samurai opposite Samuel L. Jackson.
Yuri & Tara are the authors of Voice-Over Voice Actor — possibly the definitive book on VO! Within the first few pages, it’s clear that not only these two really know their stuff, they put it across in a style that’s fun and totally readable.
Visit Tara & Yuri’s website for info about how to order the book — not to mention many great articles, tips & info about voice acting. Be sure to sign up for their email updates, and follow them on Twitter for a steady stream of good ideas and powerful inspiration!
