The relationships between the characters were amazing, and we've actually forged real-life friendships as a result of working in the same studio. I think we all felt this show was something special. Very unusual for a medium where we do our parts individually! Voicing Spike was a benchmark in my career in a lot of ways. He fulfilled some fantasies of being the badass, but with that cool, smoking-gun way about him I always aspired to have. I guess there's something in each of my characters that reflect a piece of me in some way, but Spike allowed me to express the most depth and inner torment. Very complicated soul, very subtle and challenging to voice. Show less «

Bob Bergen and Jack Angel helped me to get in the big doors... I contacted them through a mutual fan, actually, and just to get replies from them in the form of an email was exciting... I think I actually giggled like a schoolgirl. That was huge, to have the ears of these voice gods helping me out with my demo. Every day I get to meet and work with my heroes - people like Frank Welker and more recently Dee Baker - the voices of just about every creature in animation. I've been such a big fan since I was a little kid. I'd do the work for nothing, just for the privilege to watch them work... Show less «

"The character was defined for me from the first episode. He's introduced as this badass, smarmy and sarcastic, who doesn't give a crap about anything. But he also exhibits tidbits of vulnerability. In "Asteroid Blues" you see traces of his vulnerability in his interaction with Maria - that he could actually have feelings for somebody else. That made him unfold for me immediately as a multi-dimensional character. Prior to this I'd been used to playing monsters and, occasionally, heroes and that kind of thing. But never anything with any depth. This was something I could actually act." - On his character in 'Cowboy Bebop,' Spike Spiegel. Show less «

I worked some pretty awful jobs through the years. Everything from servicing fire extinguishers in the gutters of downtown LA to taking my boss's dogs to be de-skunked and living with the smell in my truck for months! There's a part of me that misses the civilian life, but I don't miss sitting in an office every day. That was something I did for 15 years. For the most part, I have the best job in the whole world. I usually go to several studios in a day. I have a home recording booth, and sometimes I'll do auditions from there - which is nice because I can save myself countless hours of driving - and do auditions in my underwear at three o'clock in the morning. I'm grateful every single day. Show less «
