Roger Craig Smith On Voicing Hedgehogs And Superheroes

From hedgehogs to superheroes, and everything in between, Roger Craig Smith’s voice has helped tell hundreds of video game stories.

This is our second episode of “Behind The Voice,” where we give you a look into the lives and careers of the actors who voice the game characters you play. In addition to chatting about where he started, and telling us what the heck a “vocal fingerprint” is, Roger shares how he came to center humility and gratefulness in his daily life and work. He tells us how his long career has let him step back and see the bigger picture.


After the video, be sure to check out his stunning nightscape photography.



I just wanted to drop in and say that this feature series has been one of my favorite in recent history. I don’t think voice actors get enough credit for the work they do and it is rad that you all are giving them some spotlight here on the site. Also, it has been super fun discovering that vastly different characters share the same voice actor! Thank you so much for the hard work you all are putting in this dumpster-fire of a year. You bring light to the world and by that light we see each other a bit more clearly.
