Chances are you have heard Larry Kenney at some point in your life. Here’s what he had to say for his Entertainment Spotlight…

When did you know you wanted to be a voice actor?I think I always knew it. I’m told I was mimicking Bugs Bunny and friends when I was four or five years old. By high school I was doing impressions of movie stars and politicians. At 15, I got my first paid radio job and I was hooked.

What have you noticed about the voice acting community over the years?

It’s grown tremendously. Today, major film and TV stars are doing voice-over … 30 years ago most of them thought it was beneath them. Partly because of that, the public is more aware of what a voice actor is.
What do you want visitors and locals to know about voice acting that they may not already know? Just that it’s a great way to make a living but extremely difficult to break into. For those who want to pursue it, I recommend voice-acting classes. Do a search for “Voice Acting” or “Voice Over” classes in your area and do some research. The best places provide an opportunity for you to meet casting directors, agents, and advertising agency people during the course and help you put together a “demo reel” that you’ll need to get work.
What social media do you use (here’s your spot to promote)? I’m on FaceBook.
In what scenario would any number of the characters you have voiced over the years be brought together? ThunderCats meet SilverHawks to fight the evil Count Chocula! In the end they sit down to a meal of Cocoa Puffs and Skittles.
