Among the Brunette Games team, Andy Mack is admired for his uncanny ability to voice humans, dogs, and everything in between. He's one part of our roster of incredible voice actors, and he agreed to let us pick his brain on voice acting, his own pup, and more.
What do you enjoy most about being a voice actor?
I enjoy the variety of being a VO actor the most. Instead of soul-crushing cubicle work, I get to be a cowboy bandit and then a medieval wizard and then an annoying robot sidekick—so the diversity of roles in a given day keeps me laughing!
What's your favorite thing about doing VO for games?
My favorite thing about doing VO for games is feeding my inner child who still wants to play games all day. I don't have much time to play games anymore, but I'm still connected to them through work, so there's still a great connection to that sense of wonder.
What's your VO "dream role"?
My dream role would either be for a Final Fantasy entry (Final Fantasy X is still my favorite game of all time) or a Disney-related game since I grew up with the company and am a former cast member.
What's a surprising/interesting fact about you?
I was obsessed with the movie Rad (1986) as a kid and started racing BMX when I was eight years old. I raced multiple times a week and even qualified for Nationals!
Do you have any pets?
I sure do have a pet. He's a wonderful old basset hound/pug mix named Kenny Powers. Here's his recent Halloween picture where he is clearly ashamed of his parents...
What's your favorite movie or TV show? Why?
I mentioned Rad earlier, and it's tied with Back to the Future for my favorite movie. However, my favorite TV show is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. "The Nightman Cometh" and "High School Reunion" episodes are two of the funniest things I've ever seen, and the characters are such narcissistic psychopaths—in the best way possible. Plus, who doesn't want/need a little Danny DeVito in their lives?
