Gather round, you hypocrites!
KHInsider is honoured to announce that we are doing an interview with the one and only Ben Diskin, the voice of Young Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]!

And we'd like your help!
If you have any questions for Mr. Diskin, Kingdom Hearts related or not, ask them now!
The best 5 will be chosen and used in the interview.

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Question: When attempting the voice of Young Xehanort, did you use the character's personality in general as a basis for his voice, or did you try to adjust your voice relative to the other Xehanorts? As in, did you think to yourself " I'm trying to sound like a younger Ansem/Xemnas", or just "a conniving, pragmatic villain"?

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Question: When voicing Young Xehanort, were you asked to voice him a certain way? Or did they allow you to depict how you'd want his voice based on reading the script/ how his character is described?

Question: How did you like playing the role of Young Xehanort and If given the opportunity, would you reprise that role for a future Kingdom Hearts game?

Question: How did it feel working with the KH franchise (did he know of it or show interest in it prior to being casted) and has the role of Xehanort grown on him

How exactly did you get into the VA business? What would you say have been your best experiences so far?

Nowhere in particular.
Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

What was the best part about voicing Young Xehanort?

How were you approached about taking the role of the voice of Young Xehanort?

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Heck yeah! This should be good!

Here are my questions (yes, I listed several questions because I didn't want to just write one)

1. So you know of the posts made by khinsider members as you have discussed some of the "drama" in your facebook page. So my question is were you already a fan or even already aware of the KH series prior to being asked to play the role? And since it has been made obvious you've looked at khinsider forums, I'm curious... are you a member or simply a lurker?
2. How did Square Enix approach you about the voice. Was there any particular reason you could think of that they may have casted you?
3. Did you enjoy the experience to voice as Young Xehanort? And if Square Enix ever contacted you again in the future asking you to reprise your role, would you accept?
