VIP announcement: Robert McCollum

Dec. 8, 2022

We are delighted to be able to announce yet another VIP guest, who we are really proud to have on our programme: voice actor Robert McCollum

Robert McCollum has been working with Funimation and Crunchyroll for almost 25 years, voicing more than 300 roles going all the way back to Teen Goten in DRAGON BALL GT. Recent notable work includes Reiner in ATTACK ON TITAN, Jellal in FAIRY TAIL, The Wizard King in BLACK CLOVER, Stain in MY HERO ACADEMIA, and Donquixote Doflamingo in ONE PIECE. Robert is also the voice of Axton in BORDERLANDS 2 and has done work for the games ORCS MUST DIE and BROTHERS IN ARMS: EARNED IN BLOOD. Among his personal favourite anime roles are Sweden in HETALIA, Date Masamune in SENGOKU BASARA, Mifune in SOUL EATER, Kaze in KAZE NO STIGMA, Kogami in PSYCHO-PASS, and his first bad guy, Shinobu Sensui from YU YU HAKUSHO: GHOST FILES.

In addition to acting, McCollum is a father of two and works as a producer and director of corporate communications in the US and UK. He is the creator of "The Inside Man" – the world’s first I.T. security training action series – for KnowBe4 and directed the wildly successful historical audio drama podcast "1865". He lives in Dallas, Texas.

At J-Popcon, you get to meet the voice behind these famous and popular characters from the anime world, both at Q&A's and at Meet & Greets – and we are definitely looking so much forward to it!  

We also hope that you are looking forward to meeting him – perhaps you already now know what you want to ask him, or perhaps you have an anime or two you have to refresh or finish watching before February?
