Interview with Voice Actor Marc Thompson Narrator of Star Wars Audio Books

Voice actor Marc Thompson who is the narrator of the Star Wars audio books was at the Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando Florida for their annual get together.  This event took place on August 25th 2012.  He was gracious enough to give an interview and he spoke about how exciting it was for him to be the “voice” of the Star Wars audio books since he is such a huge fan of the series.

He also explained his technique for coming up with the different voices and the processes that take place to make each character an individual.  It is very interesting to learn that he actually looks at illustrations of characters and takes their race into account when choosing the right voice or tonal quality for a character.  As a bonus, he even offers a couple of character voices and explains the difference between doing a cartoon voice over and narrating an entire book.
