Ian James Corlett is a Canadian animation voice actor, screenwriter, television producer and musician. He is also the creator of Studio B Productions’ animated series Being Ian and Yvon of the Yukon.
In the late 1980’s, in addition to programming some drum tracks and helping with computer sequences on Queensrÿche’s album Operation: Mindcrime, Ian began lending his voice to several animated series produced and/or dubbed in Vancouver area. Some of his notable voice roles include the title character of the Mega Man TV show, Cheetor in Beast Wars: Transformers, Glitch-Bob in ReBoot, and Andy Larkin in What’s with Andy? For a time, he played the starring role of Goku in Funimation/Saban’s original dub of Dragon Ball Z.
Ian Corlett has also lent his voice to lesser known DIC Entertainment shows such as Super Duper Sumos and Sonic Underground. He also voiced Mr. Cramp in The Cramp Twins. In Salty’s Lighthouse he played Ten Cents, O.J., Zip, Zebedee and Lord Stinker. Coincidentally, Ian voiced Dr. Wily in DIC’s video-game oriented cartoon Captain N: The Game Master and would later voice his nemesis, Mega Man, in the Ruby-Spears cartoon adaptation of the games. He will also provide the voice of Sly Cooper in the upcoming film of the same name.
He currently lives in Vancouver with his wife and two children, Phillip and Claire Corlett. Both children have worked on the animated series Dinosaur Train, as well as My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Brian Drummond has provided character voices in at least 80 different shows and 38 different movies. His work on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic credits 27 different characters, and we’re not just talking incidentals! Brian provides the voice for mainstays such as Carrot Cake and Sheriff Silverstar, as well as memorable villains and friends like Ahuizotl, Double Diamond, and Seabreeze.
Brian is well-known for his role as Vegeta, Yajirobe, and Vegito in the Ocean Studios English dub of the anime series Dragon Ball Z. Whether he’s playing the part of an impassive warrior (Andrew Waltfeld), or a kind-hearted father-figure (Reverend Malchio), his range is pretty impressive. Lately, he has voiced the characters of the cowardly Yuna Roma Seiran in Mobile Suit Gundam as well as Ryuk in Death Note. Brian’s talent has also landed him prominent roles in various anime such as Renkotsu in InuYasha, and Zechs Merquise in Gundam Wing. But even with that impressive list of credits, he’s particularly thrilled to be passing along his many years of acting experience to his children, Aidan, Ashlyn and Brynna Drummond.
