Voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario and other characters from the Mario Bros. franchise, Charles Martinet will be one of the guests of Comiccon de Québec.
The 66-year-old American actor who has lived in Paris and speaks French will be at this 8th edition of this event on October 8 and 9 at the Quebec City Convention Center.
Charles Martinet personifies the voices of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi in the English and Japanese versions of the games of this popular franchise. He will give a talk at a time that has not yet been determined by the organizers.
Employed by the Nintendo games company since 1990, the San Jose, Calif. native comedian landed the role of Mario during an audition where he showed up at the last minute. The instructions were to impersonate an Italian plumber from Brooklyn.
The Quebec Comiccon will reveal over the next few weeks and months, through its social networks, the other guests and the conferences that will be on the program.
The 8th edition of this event devoted to the world of comic books, cinema, video games, science fiction, horror and fantasy, including toys, tabletop games, cosplay, anime and manga will bring together a total of 150 artists, exhibitors and specialist retailers.
