Trivia & Fun Facts:

  • Friend of Doug Erholtz and married to fellow voice actress Tara Platt.
  • Certified practitioner of Wu Shu kung fu.
  • Fluent in English, Japanese, French and German. He has joked that the only Spanish he knows is to order Mexican food. 
  • Yuri had at one point been contracted by Bang Zoom! Entertainment to provide the English voice for Renton Thurston in Eureka Seven. After recording 13 episodes, he was replaced by Johnny Yong Bosch because it was deemed that his voice was too low for the character and all of the lines were subsequently rerecorded.
  • Yuri is never actually heard in Eureka Seven as a result, despite it previously being listed on his resume (there was however, one scene at the end of episode 7 in which Holland is watching Renton on a video and Yuri's original audio was not replaced. This may have happened because of the lack of visuals showing it was Renton on the video.
  • Was a little disappointed that he didn't get to voice Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia, though he was glad that Troy Baker got the part.

Happy Birthday Yuri Lowenthal!!

One of the most versatile voice actors to work in Anime, Original Animation and Video games. He does an incredible job voicing a multitude of characters ranging from the Kid Heroes, anti-heroes, villains or some incidental characters.

My favorite roles from Yuri are Simon, Ben Tennyson, the Toy Box Narrator, Barnaby Brooks Jr., Shinra Kishitani, Sasuke Uchiha, Keigo Asano, too name a few.

Happy birthday Yuri Lowenthal

One of the best VAs for young heroes, Yuri has come quite a way in expanding his portfolio since I first heard him as the rather polarizing Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto.

Noteworthy performances include the Persona 3 Protagonist, Yosuke Hanamura, Shinra Kishitani, Pip Bernadotte, Marth, Spider-Man, Suzaku Kururugi, Barnaby Brooks Jr., Kuma, Bedman, Amane Nishiki, Corrin (Male), and Simon.

Congrats at landing a role on Rooster Teeth's RWBY

Here's a really interesting fact, both him and Josh Grelle (his Texas counterpart) appear in the same game (Xenosaga Chronicles X)!

I'm certain that Yuri worked voice acting a lot of minor characters in devil suvivor overclocked, It was good to hear him there. Is a good voice actor.

Wow, Vic Mignogna, Mary Elizabeth Mcglynn and now Yuri. Good on Rooster Teeth
I guess it isn't too big of a surprise since Yuri and Tara Platt were in X-Ray and Vav as a bit part.
said at 5:28 PM on Sat Oct 24 2015
@Music Meister Elizabeth Maxwell's also in RWBY. & Jessica DiCicco's also in X-Ray & Vav.

@MilanTheVillain01 theres no Mary McGlynn in RWBY, though Elizabeth Maxwell can pull of a voice similar to her.

Other than Durarara X2, I haven't seen him in many anime lately. I hope to God he hasn't become union only. We lost Troy Baker, and are on the verge of losing Laura Bailey. Anime fans don't need to lose him either.

@BioZero216 If Laura Bailey becomes a union voice actor, she won't be able to do any Dragonball material.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 7:48 AM on Sat Oct 3 2015
@Shaun Ince She (and most VAs) is already a member of the union. Some people just choose to do non-union stuff on the side (whether they're ficore or not).

In any case it didn't stop Dameon Clarke.
said at 9:56 PM on Sat Oct 3 2015
@BioZero216 Agreed, it's true he hasn't been in any anime but due to bigger fish to fry in projects (voice over in video games Pre-lay animation and independent films) and also the rise of new voice actors in the Anime dubbing game (e.g Bryce Papenbrook, Lucien Dodge etc...) that are filling in the shoes of the older generation this makes scheduling more difficult for Yuri to handle.

On the other hand, I don't think Yuri has become a Union-only voice actor in the ranks of Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, Kari Wahlgren, and especially Troy Baker. Since he is still is able to do non-union voice work in the video game side of things (e.g. Persona, Fire Emblem: Awakening, etc...). So just like Mary Elizabeth McGlynn this makes him a Fi-Core voice actor.
Shaun Ince
said at 4:07 PM on Sun Oct 4 2015
@NCZ True. Though in Dameon's case, I believe he went under another name when he was credited on DBZ Kai. Dartanian Nickleback I believe was the name he went under.
said at 1:28 AM on Sun Oct 25 2015
@DisneyAnimefan1995 In terms of alternatives dont forget Steve Staley in the list (hes been in acting longer than Yuri) (he does go under the surname Steve Cannon in most nonunion work even though hes definitely FiCore)
said at 7:15 PM on Fri Mar 25 2016
@Shaun Ince

She can't become a union member if she's fi-core.
said at 7:56 PM on Fri Mar 25 2016

I heard from Fryda Wolff (a very recent professional actor) that financial core is a permanent position.

If my hunch is correct, Laura Bailey became unionized in the late 00's/early '10's after so many big video games (while appearing relatively famously in non-union productions like Street Fighter & Dragon Ball Z).

If I were to *assume* she were in the realm of US law, she'd be financial core, & permanently. The same goes for her husband, Roger Craig Smith, & Troy Baker.
said at 12:58 AM on Sat Mar 26 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed In the case of Troy Baker, its just that he is so busy with Union stuff that he can't really appear in them anymore. Same can be said with Roger Craig Smith

My favorite Yuri roles are
1) Persona 3 Protagonist (who has no canon name, both Mikoto and Minato are names given by adaptions)
2) Yosuke Hanamura (Persona 4)
3) Spider-Man (easily my #4 favorite)
4) Pip (Hellsing Ultimate)
5) Kuma (Afro Samurai)

Yuri Lowenthal,
All his characters are awesome and it's hard for me to single out one of them.

Sasuke, Soma, Yosuke, Shinra, Luke, Kuma, Zhang He and Amane. He just sounds amazing.

As good as he is, I really didn't like him as Dr. Tokita in 'Paprika'. I thought the role was really underacted in the English dub. He really could have done so much more to capture Toru Furuya's enthusiasm.

Happy Birthday Yuri Lowenthal.

One of the best VA's for any young hero. Simon from Gurren Lagann is easily my favourite role of his. He was absolutely perfect at voicing him from the start as the wimpy kid with no confidence however over the course the series he begins to grow up and finally becomes a hot blooded badass adult. Simon's character development is awesome as was Yuri's performance. I haven't seen many other VA's that nailed that level of intensity. It's huge part of why I love Gurren Lagann and its dub so much.

His performances as Barnaby Brooks Jr., Shinra Kishitani, Suzaku Kururugi, Iceman and Ben Tennyson are also all great.

Also he is a lucky man being married to Tara Platt. ;)
said at 2:26 PM on Sat Mar 5 2016
I also loved his performances as Pip Bernadotte, Rikuo Sakisaka, Riddhe Marcenas, Karl Neumann, Spider-Man, Garth/Tempest, Lagoon Boy, Icicle Jr., Raoul Chateau-Renaud, Victor and Marth.

He was also impressive as the ninjas on TMNT. I seriously believed they cast actual Japanese actors for that part. That was really cool.

Happy Birthday Yuri Lowenthal!

@Autovolt "I seriously believed they cast actual Japanese actors for that part. That was really cool. "

You're probably aware, but Yuri has been known to be fluent in Japanese (as well as French & German).

That's likely part of the casting.

I cant believe Steve (Rogue Galaxy) is Yuri, it doesnt sound like him
said at 9:14 AM on Fri Jan 10 2014
A few years ago, I thought that I recognized him on a Ford commercial that had speed dating in the commercial. I may be wrong, but I could have sworn he was one of the people shown in the commercial.

It was in live-action.
said at 9:21 PM on Tue Dec 31 2013
It surprises me the kinds of voices Yuri can do. I can scroll down this page and repeatedly say to myself, "HE WAS SO-AN-SO?!!!"
Yet other times I recognize him in my video games before I get to the credits. Not by his voice itself, but by the way he screams/yells. That's how I found out he was Luke in Tales of The Abyss and The Masked Gentleman in Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask (the latter of which isn't listed here).
But hey, I'm not bringing him down, here, he is a talent.
said at 2:33 PM on Wed Mar 5 2014
@Midna Yeah, I've noticed it's pretty easy to find Yuri Lowenthal based on his yelling (that makes him the Tomokazu Seki of English voice acting XD). ...He was unrecognizable during the first appearance of the Masked Gentleman, though - that was kind of epic. (I also love his English accent, it sounds sort of genuine.)

Since the first moment I saw Luke and Asch in Abyss and Yosuke in Persona 4, I've noticed that Yuri actually excels at playing angry characters - there's something in his angry snarling that just sounds strangely captivating. It's such a turnaround from his character's calm voice.

Hey Yuri, I just want to say you are by far one of the greatest voice actors ever to walk the face of the earth. You and Tara inspire me to read your book, Voice Over Voice Actor, What it's Like behind the Mic. Ive always done alot of character impersonations my entire life and that made me realize my dream in becoming a voice actor. I want to thank you and Tara for inspiring me to pursue this dream. My name is Michael Messina and I will stop at nothing to achieve my goal.

I loved Yuri Lowenthal's voice acting in a lot of games that I played, constantly being surprised of his skills and ways of acting and I know he also voice acted the role of Finn in Resident Evil 6. (I recognised his voice and it was stated in the game credits) although I wonder if he also voiced a different character in the same game. because if you'd play resident evil 6 in Leon's campaign, and you are in chapter 2, there is a person shouting from the cathedral: "Get inside, HURRY!" .. and I swear I hear Yuri's voice in there, but it's not stated anywhere in the credits whatsoever... anybody any suggestions?

Yuri, Yuri, Yuri. No doubt he's one of the greatest voice talent this world has to offer, yet there's plenty more that can live up to higher standards. Personally, I think some of his best roles are the Prince, Simon from Gurren Lagann, and Alucard from Castlevania (despite the fact that Robert Belgrade did better, in my opinion)
