Kyle McCarley is a talented voice actor from anime such as Mobile Suit Gundam and Mob Psycho 100 and video games such as NieR: Automata and God Eater 3! We interviewed this talent at Thy Geekdom Con 2019!
Kyle McCarley grew up (but not really) in Kansas and moved to Los Angeles at age 18 to study acting. After getting hooked on playing World of Warcraft with his buddies, he co-wrote, co-directed, and voiced several characters in a fan-made online radio play loosely set in that universe. Once he finished his Theatre degree at the University of Southern California, he decided to further pursue that passion in the form of a career in voice acting. Kyle can now be heard in anime, video games, cartoons, audiobooks, live action dubs, TV and radio commercials, industrial ads, and even a talking toy plunger.
