Ian James Corlett is a Canadian voice actor, animator and author. He is the creator of Studio B Productions' animated series Being Ian and Yvon of the Yukon. One of his best-known animation roles was the first-ever English voice of adult Goku in the FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z in 1996–1997.

He voiced Alucard in the Captain N: The Game Master animated series.

Background[]

For nearly three decades Ian has been serving up unique voice characterizations for projects of every genre. His beginnings were voicing radio and TV commercials and soon found himself working in animated features and series. He originated the iconic English dub voice of Goku in Dragon Ball Z, and also voiced other icons from the 1990s, such as Mega Man and BOB in Reboot. He also has provided his voice in the Emmy nominated Dinosaur Train, Cartoon Network's Johnny Test, and more recently, Disney Jr's Vampirina.

Most of Ian's time is spent in front of a microphone, but when he isn't recording, he's writing and creating new series, including his namesake Being Ian, which ran for 65 episodes and a film.

Ian spends his non-working time following professional motorsport and racing his own cars. He recently moved from Vancouver to Los Angeles.

Career[]

Corlett began his career in 1984. In addition to programming some drum tracks and helping with some computer sequences on Queensrÿche's album Operation: Mindcrime, and also selling the band some music gear in the 1980s, he also lent his voice to several animated series produced/dubbed in Canada. His most notable voice roles included the title character of the Mega Man TV show, Cheetor in Beast Wars: Transformers, Glitch-Bob in ReBoot, and Andy Larkin in What's with Andy?. Another notable, yet brief starring role of Corlett's was Goku in FUNimation/Saban's original dub of Dragon Ball Z. Corlett has also lent his voice to less known DIC Entertainment shows such as Super Duper Sumos. He also voiced Mr. Cramp in The Cramp Twins. In Salty's Lighthouse, he played Ten Cents, Otis, Zeebee, Zip, Lord Stinker, Frank, Eddie, and the Lighthouse Clock.

Through a coincidence, Corlett, who voiced Dr. Wily in DIC's video-game oriented cartoon Captain N: The Game Master, would later voice his nemesis Mega Man in the Ruby-Spears cartoon adaptation of the games.

He, along with fellow Canadian voice actor Terry Klassen, owned a production company who helped rewrite international shows.

He is set to be the English voice of Miroku for the Japanese anime series Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, replacing Kirby Morrow who was the original English voice actor for Miroku in the Inuyasha series until his death in November 18, 2020.
