Did you grow up with the books or television series at all? My particular thing was space and the future. If it had a rocket engine on it, it had my attention. What inspired you to become an actor, and where did you gain your earliest experience? My acting career began on the stage when I was 9 in Florida where I grew up. It was something I fell into. The local Jewish community centre was holding acting classes, which sounded fun, but it was by no means a calling.
After a couple of classes the teacher pulled me aside and asked if I would be interested in auditioning for a professional show. The director and I got on and that was the beginning. I enjoyed the process and there is nothing so heady for a youngster as being in an adult world and being taken seriously. As it turned out the experience I gained there was pure gold because of the people I was working with. Many of them were old vaudevillians who were coming out of retirement for the pleasure of it.
This linked me into a wonderful tradition that disappeared by the time I was an adult. The short answer is that I fell in love. My sweetheart at university and I decided to have an European adventure. Our first stop was London where her family lived. They were really keen for her to stay for an extended period so we kept delaying our departure. During this period a video game company sponsored me to write for them and so we stayed and set up a home.
Now, many years later, I am a naturalized British citizen. One of the great pleasures about being based in London is the variety of work that is readily available and much of it is my first love: voice work. You see, as an actor you are often limited by your body to what people will cast you as but with animation or radio plays or talking books you can be free to be whatever you can make your voice do. Do you prefer voice acting or feel more comfortable appearing in front of a camera?
Camera work is loads of fun, as are plays. You form a little community and the work itself has the thrilling challenge of intense focus while at the same time distractions are being thrown at you. IMDB is not comprehensive and sometimes wrong. I play Percy. Bill Hope plays Toby. I try to keep away from violent stuff but that is part of most games for all but the very young. Thrillville and its sequel for Frontier were classic examples of my work and they brought me in fairly late into the development, they knew what they wanted.
However, sometimes I get to put a real creative oar in, for example in So Blonde published by Eidos Interactive, with the help of the wonderful writer Steven Ince, I convinced the production company to let the central character play away from the stereotype they had originally envisioned. So the central character played the dumb blonde because that was all society expected of her and through the course of the story she comes out from her intellectual shell. This meant giving a very specific slant to some of the dialogue.
The most challenging project I have undertaken was the ill fated game The Outsider for Frontier. This action, political thriller was to be on the scope of 20 feature films back to back and they had me in about midway though development and I was on it for about two years. Having seen two of the nearly-completed Orsum Island episodes leaked to YouTube, the reaction has been quite positive from fans — how did you come to be involved with it? Straight up audition. David Lane and David Mitton had been working on OI for a couple of years and had made a short to test the technology and some characters.
They decided that their new world needed a central character, an everyman, for the audience to identify with and put out a general call to the voice agents. It was my lucky day. What was it like to work on the project? Were you simply involved with the voice acting side of it, or were you involved with the motion-capture side of it as well? They filmed us while we were working but this was only for our face. The motion capture was someone else.
How much work was done on Orsum prior to the series being shelved in ? What was your reaction when you heard that the series would not be continuing in production? Great sadness. David Mitton was so passionate about the project. I thought it would be nice to carry on. But the loss of the project is nothing compared to the loss of David. I remember sitting in the sun at Shepperton Studios, eating sandwiches and listening to him talk about seeing Jimmy Hendrix and Led Zeppelin with a far away gleam in his eyes.
