Chris Patton: “I Can No Longer Appear at Conventions”

Last night on facebook, American voice actor Chris Patton announced that he was done with attending anime  conventions. The 39 year old Patton cited fatigue and a desire  to get back to work in his descision.

“Voicing commercials, audio books, eLearning, and to a somewhat lesser extent anime and video games is what pays my bills,” Patton wrote.  “Not conventions. And yet, imagine, in the last five weeks, I’ve spent four of those weeks MOSTLY holed up in a hotel, unable to audition, or work.”

Although he will finish out the rest of the convention season, his final appearance will be Nan Desu Kan in September.

Patton’s voice work in anime includes Ichiro in Nerima Daikon Brothers and the homunculus Greed in Fullmetal Alchemist. He recently completed an audio version of Alex Finn’s novel Beastly.
