For over four decades, John Stocker has been a recognized force in the voice industry. Still very active as a voice actor, he started out as both an on- and off-camera performer, but then settled comfortably into solely the voice world.
John has diversified his career to also include voice casting, voice coaching, demo production (animation and commercial) and the discipline that keeps him busiest, voice direction.
His voice performance work spans the gamut, from classics like Beastly in Care Bears, Basil in Babar, Longarm in C.O.P.S., and Bugsy in Dog City to current works like Mayor Swifty in Sidekick, Mr. Owl in Franklin, Mission Control in Rob the Robot and both Naga and King Zenoheld in Bakugan.
On the directing side, John had been at the helm for many, many productions. They include Totally Spies, Caillou, Redakai, Mike the Knight, Ella the Elephant and some of his favourites, the anime productions - Medabots, Beylade and the one that started it all for him, Sailor Moon.
This will be John's first guest appearance at Anime North, and he looks forward to meeting a lot of new enthusiasts. Check out his website at www.johnstocker.ca.
