SchemmelSean Schemmel is a prolific voice actor hailing from Waterloo, Iowa. Originally an aspiring French Horn player, he was talked into going to an open casting call for a show called Dragonball Z. To his surprise, he landed the lead roles of Goku and King Kai. It was at this point that he realized he not only liked voice acting better than playing Horn in orchestras (because it’s a miserable experience, trust me), but was also better at it. So he switched careers and moved to New York City. Sean’s latest role is reprising the two that kick started his career in the new feature film Dragonball Z Battle of Gods.

Sean currently lives in L.A. with his girlfriend and their dog. Though he still plays Horn he is currently more focused on the electric guitar. He’s listening to Joe Satriani as he types this bio. Later, he’s going to try and beat his girlfriend at Mario Kart. He is going to fail miserably.

 

Christopher SabatChristopher R. Sabat has lived on a diet of Senzu Beans for nearly 15 years. As the Voice Director for Dragonaball Z as well as the actor behind Vegeta, Piccolo, Yamcha, Mr. Popo, Kami, Jeice, Recoome, Korin, Burter, Shenron, Zarbon, Guru, Porunga, and countless others, you could possibly say he is the voice of Dragonball Z. Christopher currently owns Okratron 5000, a game audio and voice-over production studio in Dallas, Texas.

Christopher has also leant his voice to countless other roles in the anime and videogame world including Alex Luis Armstrong in Fullmetal Alchemist, Roronoa Zoro in One Piece, Ayame Sohma in Fruits Basket, Saiga Tatsumi in Speed Grapher, Kurogane in Tsubasa Chronicles, Daisuke Jigen in Lupin III, Garland in Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Rundas in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Alex D in Deus Ex: Invisible War, and both Captain Smiley and Star in Comic Jumper.

When not in the studio, Christopher tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife Tabitha and his brand new baby girl, Hero.
