There are lots of really cool Voice Actors and Voice Actresses that are talented and super nice, Vic probably knows them all by now too. lol
So once in a while we will Feature Another Voice Actor/Voice Actress for you guys to learn/read about. The Anime/Video Game business is just FILLED with awesome people!
Travis Willingham is a well known Actor that's worked on Stage, TV, Film and is a great Voice Actor whose captured the eyes of Anime Fans everywhere with his charming personality and love for his work.
He had found Dragon Ball Z in College one day while hanging out with friends and channel surfing, he realized, “THIS IS AWESOME!!” and was shocked to find out that his friend Laura Bailey (You might know Laura as the Voice Actress who plays Lust in Fullmetal Alchemist, Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket, ect.) was a part of the Series after getting into it. (He's been a big Dragon Ball Fan ever since.)
Eventually he went out and auditioned for Funimation. His first role was for Yu Yu Hakusho with the part of Mitsunari "Yana" Yanagisawa. He was really excited because he heard that the show had a lot of action. His role was not particularly that way but he was still excited to be voice acting, upon getting the role for Roy Mustang he was ecstatic. “I GET TO CONTROL FIRE WITH MY FINGERS!!!”
Travis considered his role of Roy Mustang
to be, “A freaking BADASS!”
It was his first big Lead and was according to Travis, “A special opportunity.” he considers Roy to be a little subtler in voice but close to his own speaking Voice and was a lot of fun to say the least.
The way the famous Roy Mustang Dog Line
was performed was actually Travis improving, he asked, "Are you sure you want me to be this big?
" referring to how over the top it was and Colleen Clinkenbeard said it was so hilarious she had to use the first take for the show. Roy Mustang Dog Line
He and Vic have had a Friendly Rivalry pretty much from the moment their Fan Clubs started.
Risembool Rangers = Vic's Fan Club
Mini Skirt Army = Travis's Fan Club
They respect each other and enjoy teasing one another. In a way their friendship transcends Fullmetal Alchemist and is really just a cool connection with their personalities. They also love to compete against each other for fun: Travis talking about Vic. (And Dodgeball)
His relationship with Laura Bailey is a really special one and after going out for a while Travis asked Laura to marry him and they are currently happily Husband and Wife.
