Todd Haberkorn is a gifted voice, stage, and movie actor, well loved by his many fans and deservedly so!
From the first time I met Todd in the Green Room at Youmcon 2010 I was impressed with his kindness and gentle nature. Even though he was waiting for his ride to get to the airport he readily signed my con badge for me. Which was doubly kind as he could probably tell I was clueless as to who he was, but was just getting his signature to send to a friend and figured he must be someone because he was in the green room.
My next encounter with Todd was at Katsu Con in Washington D.C. where we chatted a bit and he agreed to do an interview with me.
Todd went on from conversing with me to do a panel with other, perhaps lesser known, voice actors from the Full Metal Alchemist series (apologies to Ms. Glass as I would recognize her anywhere of course!)
During the Katsu Con FMA panel the panelists were asked about Pokemon characters and Todd made a quick phone call to a friendly expert from home for the best information he could provide (such humility as to admit he had friends who were far more the experts in the matter!)
Todd and I discussed the possibility of doing an interview at Anime St Louis but as things went, well, it didn’t.
As it turned out, it was probably for the best as Todd wasn’t at his best for spontaneity. Here he expresses his perplexity that his partner couldn’t get “Body” from the clues “cavity” and “search” (I thought they were excellent clues… but for an inmate password, not Anime password.)
It was, of course, a tremendous pleasure to track Todd down when I was in Hollywood this week and have a nice chat with him and had no idea that he was going to be the recipient of the highly prestigious Weird Review OTY Award!
I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did recording it and Thanks again Todd!
