Well i don't think this is unusual to be honest, it's only in recent times that Voice Actors have been "big" players. Every gamer today know who Nolan North and Troy Baker, Mark Hamill is even bigger and it's only in recent years that everybody knows that he's both Luke Skywalker and the Joker. I knew for a long time who David Bateson and Vivian Mckee was, they already had foothold in the Danish tv-shows, movies and theater. Not big players like Mads Mikkelsen, but when 47 pups up in a tv-show, you are aware of it.
I'm still waiting for him to vist Denmark again!, i really want to meet him. Also have a workout with him, that would be gold.
