David Wald

 

David Wald began voice acting several years ago with ADV Films, Sentai Filmworks, and Funimation. His credits include Bulat in Akame Ga Kill!, Hannes in Attack On Titan, Gajeel in Fairy Tail, Paulie in One Piece, Mutsumi in Kiss Him, Not Me, Rikki Nendou in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K, Germán in Garo: The Animation, Reiji in Diabolik Lovers, Ren in DRAMatical Murder, Katze in Gatchaman: CROWDS, Woodley in Black Butler: Book of Murder, Raizo in Ghost In The Shell: Arise, Master Chief in Halo: Legends, Charlie in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Duke Togo in Golgo 13, Tsutomu in Kids On The Slope, Kyouichi in Tokyo Majin, Kaito Daimon in Phi Brain, Kondou in Hakuoki, Dr. Ozaki in Shiki, Choe Gu-Sang in Psycho Pass, and Count Magnus Lee in Sentai’s 2015 dub of Vampire Hunter D, among many others. David served as ADR Director for Aura: Koga Maryuin’s Last War, and has recently begun working as a writer of ADR scripts.

David began working in theatre way back when WHAM! topped the Billboard charts, Back To The Future was the top-grossing film, wide, neon shoelaces were a thing, and we were all blissfully unaware of the damage our hairspray was doing to the ozone layer. Since those days, David has developed a great love for Shakespeare and very little need for hairspray. You’re welcome, ozone layer! He’s worked with noted Shakespeare scholars and interpreters including Andrew Wade from the RSC, Tina Packer from Shakespeare & Company, Guy Roberts from the Prague Shakespeare Company, and the late, great Dr. Sidney Berger of The Houston Shakespeare Festival.

David was a Studio Music and Jazz major at Elmhurst College, the University of Miami, and the University of North Texas and spent several years playing and singing in rock, funk, and jazz bands in the Midwest and East Coast. Eventually, he ran out of rock-n-roll angst and decided to go back into the more rational world of acting. His therapist has encouraged him to investigate the reasoning behind this decision thoroughly.
