BRAD SWAILE

Vancouver-born and raised, Brad began acting at a relatively young age and, once in high school, had his first audition for an animated series. This first voice acting gig took the form of a pony named “Ace” in My Little Pony Tales and soon afterwards, he landed his first anime role as “Mousse” in Ranma 1/2. Some of his more notable anime characters include: Light (Death Note), Amuro, Quatre, Dearka, Auel and Setsuna (on their respective Gundam series’ –  from Mobile Suit to 00 ), Gohan (Dragon Ball Z), Rock (Black Lagoon), Ryuki (The Story of Saiunkoku), Kicker (Transformers: Energon) and Lan (Megaman: NT Warrior).

Amongst many Gundam video game titles, in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3, you can watch Brad in conversation with himself as both “Setsuna” and “Amuro”, as well as the deranged mascot “Slappy” in Capcom’s Dead Rising 2. He can also be heard cautiously embracing the Devil Gene as “Jin Kazama” in Street Fighter X Tekken. More recent voice projects include the roles of “Wei Ping”, “Yuan”, “Li Mu”, “Zhong Tie” and “Qiang Yan” in Kingdom, “Jun Arashiyama” in World Trigger, “Basara” and “B-Shot Ryu” in B-Daman Fireblast, “Saito” in Gintama, the “Ken” character (aka: Kris) in Barbie Video Game Hero, as well as “Ollie” and “Superfan” in “Ratchet & Clank” (the animated feature film).

One of Brad’s favorite North American cartoon gigs was playing “Nightcrawler” in the multi Emmy Award winning X-men Evolution, along with roles in other projects like Sonic the Hedgehog, Matchbox: Hero City, Double Dragon, DreamKix, The Little Prince and Superbook. Over the years, Brad has worked on several anime series’ including Inu-Yasha, Hamtaro, Kurozuka, Soul Taker, Nurse Witch Komugi, Maison Ikkoku, Hikaru No Go, Infinite Ryvius, Tokyo Underground, Project Arms, Boys Over Flowers, Kimba the White Lion, Shakugan No Shana, Dokkoida!?, Saber Marionette J, Video Girl Ai, Arjuna, Zoids, Flash & Dash, .hack//Roots, Powerpuff Girls Z and Dragon Drive.

Along with voice acting, Brad continues to work professionally as a Graphic Designer/Production Artist and, when not at the hockey rink or on the baseball field, enjoys playing drums and guitar (often while doodling in his sketchbook). It should also be noted that Brad is currently involved in a potentially obsessive relationship with chocolate milk.
