Neil Kaplan joins Marc and Greg to talk about playing Emperor Zarkon on Voltron Legendary Defender, as well as his entire voice acting career, and his appreciation for all Voltron fans.
Neil Kaplan is a man of many talents, and has a voice acting resume that includes many credits in movies, animation, video games, promos, narration, and commercial work. He has played Optimus Prime in Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Diabolico in Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue, Hawkmon in Digimon, and Tychus Findlay on StarCraft 2. Of course, we all love his Emperor Zarkon from the first season of Voltron Legendary Defender and we can't wait to see more Zarkon in (hopefully) more seasons to come on Netflix. After you hear our podcast, you'll want him to come back for more, and you may get the chance when we review The Black Paladin (Episode 11) from Voltron Legendary Defender.
Neil wants to share his contact information on both Facebook and Twitter, so you can continue to chat with him about anything Voltron.
