VAMFR 005 | Interview with Matthew Mercer, Part 1

Welcome to episode 5 of the Voice Acting Mastery: Field Report podcast!

In this episode our correspondent, DanWill McCann, begins his interview with the prolific and mult-talented Matthew Mercer.

Matthew has given fantastic voice performances in over 150 projects, ranging from Video Games, like Robin in Batman: Arkham Knight and MacCready in the recent hit Fallout 4, to animation, like Levi in Attack on Titan and Iron Man in Iron Man Rise of the Technovore.

In this segment, Matthew shares his beginnings, his journey, his inspirations, and he offers some advice for those aspiring to work in the field. DanWill sincerely appreciates Matthew’s straightforward honesty about the amount of effort it takes to become and remain professionally competitive in the voice acting world. Both DanWill and I think you’ll enjoy hearing Matthew share his ongoing love of animation as much as we did! So please welcome Matthew Mercer!

The VAM Field Report will be released on the 1st Wednesday of every month so stay on the look out for it!

    I would check out Matt’s work with Geek & Sundry.

    He is the DM for the Dungeons and Dragons game they stream on Twitch “Critical Role”. Great NPC voices and storytelling. Live Thursday’s at 7pmPST on

    • Crispin Freeman says:

      That is absolutely true. In fact, if you listened through to the end of the episode, DanWill mentions that he’ll be talking with Matthew about Critical Role and his other web based projects in part 2 of the interview. I hope you’ll listen to that as well.

      I am a big fan of Critical Role and, as Crispin mentioned, we talk about it in Episode 6. It was one of the reasons I asked Matthew for the interview.

      Thank you for listening!

    Well, that was a lovely start to an interview! Can’t wait to see where it goes!

    Dee’s creature work is amazing, I’ve watched BTS clips when he was working on Avatar: The Last Airbender where he played Appa and Momo. I was so fascinated the way he used his hands to manipulate his face to get the noises he could to play those characters impeccably well. Appa and Momo are two very distinct characters in and of themselves, and the fact they came from the same throat is mind-boggling.

    Glad to see Matthew is a giant nerd, just like the rest of us. Nerds are cool.

    Can’t wait to hear more from him!

    Thank you, Kalyn.
    I was looking up his Avatar work and found this video (I am guessing it is the one you are talking about)

    He really is amazing!

    Thanks again for listening!
