The Voice Actors who Raised You

A Nostalgic tumblr exploring voice acting, cartoons, and how they affected/affect your life.

OK, important Voice Actor revelation.  If you have some of the Star Wars DVDs, or maybe even old VHS tapes, you will find that figure in the Emperor hologram in the Empire Strikes back is not Ian McDiarmid (who plays the emperor in every other star wars movie).  Instead there is an old figure in robes with glowing eyes (the eyes of a chimpanzee; fact).  That was the very first image of the emperor, and he was voiced by an actor named Clive Revill.

Fast forward to the 90’s, when Batman: the Animated Series was released.  Revill also voiced Alfred.  That’s right: the Emperor from Star Wars and Alfred from Batman were voiced by the same person.  That’s crazy!
