He’s Robinson Crusoe, He’s Ben 10, He’s Spider-Man – Hag & Con Chat to Yuri Lowenthal

He’s Robinson Crusoe, He’s Ben 10, He’s Spider-Man – Hag & Con Chat to Yuri Lowenthal!!!

Hag and Con with Yuri Lowenthal (The voice of Robinson Crusoe) and fellow voice actor Tara Platt

You’ve played so many famous characters – what does that feel like? Con age 9

Yuri Lowenthal – Because I’ve been a fan of cartoons, comic books and video games for so long, it’s a thrill to get to play these characters. Especially if they were some of my favorites growing up! But because I’m such a big fan, sometimes it makes me nervous, because I want to get it right!

If you could be any of the characters you’ve played over the years in real life – who would you be and why? Hag age 11

Yuri Lowenthal – I think Ben Tennyson might be up there on the list because who wouldn’t want a watch that lets you turn into all those different aliens!

You’re such a big voice actor – but who’s the most exciting voice actor you’ve ever met and why? Con age 9

Yuri Lowenthal – I’m very lucky that I get to work with so many talented people every day, so it’s hard to choose, but I will say that it was exciting to work with Wil Wheaton, especially because we’ve become such good friends since then!

If you were really stuck on a desert island what would you do first? Hag age 11

Yuri Lowenthal – Look for food and water!

What did you do differently with the voice of Robinson Crusoe that you didn’t do with other characters? Con age 9

Yuri Lowenthal – Just like your last question, I had to imagine what it would be like if I got stuck on a desert island. How would that make me feel? Would I be scared? Excited? And thinking about those things colored my performance.

There are loads of animals on Crusoe’s island – if you could have any animal as a pet which would you choose and why? Hag age 11

Yuri Lowenthal – I really liked the pangolin and the echidna in the movie, but if I could choose ANY animal as a pet it would be a fox, because he says ring-ding-ding-ding-ding-a-dinga-ding!
