About Charles Martinet:

Charles Martinet (born September 17, 1955) is an American actor and voice actor, best known for providing the voice of Mario, the titular character in Nintendo’s flagship video game franchise. He has held this role since 1994, longer than any other actor. He also voices Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and a select few other characters from the same series. He is fluent in English, Spanish, and French, but very little Italian.

Working for Nintendo since 1994, Martinet started voicing Mario at video game trade shows in which attendees would walk up to a TV screen displaying a 3-D Mario head that moved around the screen and talked. This system was called “Mario in Real-Time” or “MIRT”. Martinet could see the attendees by means of a hidden camera setup, and a facial motion capture rig recorded his mouth movements in order to synchronize Martinet’s mouth movement with the on-screen Mario mouth movement. This digital puppetry, with Martinet’s comic performance, was a novelty at the time.

Martinet was told by his friend that there was going to be an audition at a trade show in which you “talk to people as a plumber”. He went to the audition at the last minute as the casting directors were already putting away their equipment. Charles Martinet walked in and asked, “Can I please read for this?”. The directors let him audition and told him, “You’re an Italian plumber from Brooklyn”. At first Martinet planned to talk like a stereotypical Italian American with a deep, raspy voice (which is how Mario sounded in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World cartoons). He then thought to himself that it would be too harsh for children to hear, so he made it more soft-hearted and friendly, resulting in what Mario’s voice is today. Martinet has also stated that he kept on talking with his Mario voice until the audition tape ran out.[2]
Martinet’s video game voice over debut was as Mario in the 1995 Windows release of Interplay’s game Mario’s FUNdamentals. However, most were first exposed to Mario’s voice in the landmark 1996 game Super Mario 64. He has voiced Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Metal Mario, Shadow Mario, Donkey Kong,[3]MC Ballyhoo, Mini-Mario Toy, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Wario in most games wherein these characters speak. He also voiced the enemies Wart, Mouser, Tryclyde, and Clawgrip in Super Mario Advance. His voice work appears in the English and Japanese-language versions of the games, although his work is always in English (regardless of the Italian references whenever he voices Mario and related characters).

Martinet provided voiceover acting for the boxers and the announcer in the Super NES title Super Punch-Out!!. He voiced the character Vigoro in Sega’s Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube role-playing video game, Skies of Arcadia. He did the voice of Homunculus in the Konami PlayStation 2, Xbox and Windows game Shadow of Destiny, and provided voices for Reader Rabbit and The ClueFinders games.
In addition to videogame voice overs, Martinet has worked as a voice actor in commercials, cartoons, and promotions. At the E3 trade show in 2005, Charles (as an Animal Crossing character) could be found roaming the virtual village featured in the playable demo of Animal Crossing: Wild World. Martinet did Mario’s voice as the voice announcer for Pac-Man Vs. on the Nintendo GameCube.
Other than the Mario series, Charles has also done work for the video game Cel Damage as the voice of Fowl Mouth, as well as the primary voice work in several educational game series such as LeapFrog. He also voiced the dragon Paarthurnax in the 2011 video game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and narrated the cutscenes and menus for the 2013 video game “Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien”.

He was thrilled to be starring with Rhys Ivans, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and Charles Dance in the SYFY event NEVERLAND. This epic fantasy adventure playing the swashbuckling, hilariously nasty pirate foil to Hook was one of the highlights of his career.

He was delighted to work opposite Mark Harmon on the hit CBS show N.C.I.S., in David Mamet’s CBS action series The Unit, and guest starring in the exciting NBC series E-Ring opposite Benjamin Bratt and MEDIUM opposite Patricia Arquette.

Anvar also starred in lead roles for the WB feature film SUBLIME and the BBC/Discovery miniseries SUPERSTORM for which he earned a prestigious ACTRA nomination for BEST ACTOR. And was honored to work opposite Christopher Plummer in the acclaimed film AGENT OF INFLUENCE.

Canadian audiences may recognize Cas as the arrogant Dr Singh from the CBC’s critically acclaimed mock-u-mentary series about obsessive hockey parents who live vicariously through their kids, THE TOURNAMENT ( for which he was nominated for 2 GEMINI awards for BEST ENSSEMBLE CAST).

Anvar first came to popular attention In the Cruise/Wagner film SHATTERED GLASS, Anvar portrayed Kambiz Foroohar, a moral force who unmasks the fraudulent reporter Stephen Glass, played by Hayden Christensen. Widely acclaimed on the festival circuit, SHATTERED GLASS premiered at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival, followed by the Toronto International Film Festival, with a general public opening in New York. The film was nominated for 4 Spirit Awards and 1 Golden Globe.

His extensive list of credits include Steven Spielberg’s THE TERMINAL opposite Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta Jones and Stanley Tucci.

Anvar respected as the Founding Artistic Director for over 18 years of the acclaimed Shakespeare-in-the-Park touring company, Repercussion Theatre. The only touring Shakespeare In The Park troupe in the world. With innovative, visually dynamic, totally accessible productions and a truly impressive ability to mount, perform and dismantle a Shakespearean play in a day, the company tours extensively across eastern Canada and all through the U.S. as far south as Texas.

The fluently trilingual (English, French and Farci) Anvar, who credits part of his wide-ranging creativity to his exotic cultural and spiritual heritage, is a recipient of the Carla Napier Award for Achievement in the Montréal Theatre community as well as Alliance Quebec’s Youth Achievement Award for accomplishments in the Arts.

Chris Pope talks with one of Ellen McLain’s most hardcore fans, Samantha Skinner

Chris Pope, producer of the Tech Jives Network and Social Media Publicist will be interviewing one of Ellen McLain’s(Voice of GLaDOS from Portal 1 and 2) biggest fans.

When: Wednesday, December 7th, 2011 at 6pm PST / 9pm EST

Where: LIVE at this link

 Message from Chris Pope:

I would like to personally invite everyone to listen to this talk I’m having with Samantha. We all know what it is like to be a fan of someone or something we love or admire, yet not everyone has the guts to do what this amazing girl has done, such as really put ourselves out there for the world to see.

I get insane amounts of fan mail to go through all week long for Ellen, as you can imagine it can get tedious at times. Part of what I do for my clients like Ellen is sort through mail involving  fans, trolls, and spam. Ellen gets very little troll mail, but tons of spam and tons of fan mail. Lots of fan made videos, lots of fan made audio, pictures, you name it, I’ve probably seen it/heard it, but Samantha put together a video in which she opens up her heart and really speaks to not just Ellen, but all of the fans out there. I know for me personally, it reminded me what it is like to be a fan of someone/something.

When is the last time you opened yourself up and exposed yourself to something you loved or admired? I think we can all learn something from this young beautiful canadian fan girl, don’t you?

Come have a live listen and chat with Samantha and I on Wednesday!
