Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Sorry I can't just ask one. It is impossible.


1. Have you ever heard of the game Kingdom Hearts before voicing Young Xeohanort? If not did you have to brush up on resources to understand the game or play through the series?

2. When Sqaure-Enix asked you to voice Young Xeohanort, did they give you a revised script to follow separate from the japanese one or a new one? If so how it did defer from the oringal version of the game?

3. Some VA used sutle hand motions to stay in character when they are recording. How did you tone yourself with Young Xeohanort?

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Was it worth playing the part of Young Xehanort? Did you ever think to yourself "Hey, I really like this character"?

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Mr. Diskin how has playing Young Master Xheanort differed from any other role you have taken on?

Re: KHInsider interviews Ben Diskin!

Question: "Before playing the role of Young Master Xehanort, had you ever heard of or played any games in the Kingdom Hearts series?"

Besides KH1 and KH2, did you have any exposure to the other games?

Maybe too much, but instead of just Master Xehanort, maybe all Xehanort variations? (Master, Xemnas, Ansem SoD)

It was meant to be a joke though lol

But hey, it'd be cool if he did. However, he could not be aware of how they even sound like so yeah :p

KHI: Hey, could you try do one of the Xehanort voices? Ansem? Or Xemnas maybe?

Ben: ... Sorry, don't know how they sound like actually. I know Ansem and Xemnas but it has been so long since I played those games.. So yeah uhm..

KHI: I see...

*awkward silence*

Don't ask voice actors to do their voices or other voices. They find it really annoying. It's an insult to their work. It takes time to prepare and get into character.

I'd imagine it's less about "preparing and getting into character" and more on the "insult to their work" side. It's sort of like saying, "we don't care about your character so amuse us with these others."

Yeah, when my brother met Richard Epcar at a Power Rangers convention, he asked him for a shout out and Richard Epcar said he'd do a shout out, but he wouldn't do it in Ansem SoD's voice if my brother asked xP

Out of all the Xehanorts, I actually like Young Xehanort's voice better. I don't think Master Xehanort's voice fits him and I find Xemnas a bit dull. Ansem... I actually like it after the change. I still prefer Young Xehanort, I just thought it would be interesting to hear how he imagined the counterparts of his character.
