Five Questions With: Jon St. John

I16W02f2_JStJohn

Voice actor Jon St. John has an impressive CV, with credits ranging from the Sonic the Hedgehog series to Star Trek Online. But most video fan games will recognize him as the voice of the wisecracking, movie-quoting Duke Nukem.

Jon will be with us at Intervention this September, so we took a minute to ask him our five questions — about his career, the con, and what he’s most looking forward to!

InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?
Jon St. John: I work with many independent game developers, so too many to mention in that arena…as far as artists, Danny Kang is a fantastic talent and I would like to see him get recognition.

IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?
JSJ: Yeah – everything! But the VO business has changed so much over the years and has become so much easier thanks to technology. I wish I had taken my career more seriously in the beginning…I thought voice acting was a “side thing” to do while I was a radio personality and producer. Turns out – it’s the much better career choice.

IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?
JSJ: Games that they like and the types of characters that they love most in games. I want to land those roles…the ones players find most entertaining.

IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?
JSJ: Todd Haberkorn and I are friends…I will enjoy hanging with Todd…but René Auberjonois is the fellow I most interested in meeting. I’ve been a fan of his work for many years.

IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?
JSJ: Yeah – party time!! I like to party with fans and friends, so join me for a shot of tequila, won’t you?

GUEST SPOTLIGHT: Five Questions with John Peel

ChQX0P5UcAA3Ltl

Leading up to the con, we’ll be spotlighting some of our guests, what to expect at the con, and what they personally are looking forward to! Up first is author John Peel. John has been a guest at our sister event, (Re)Generation Who, for the last two years. Now he’s crossing over to join us at Intervention!

John has written tie-ins for several series, including Doctor Who and Star Trek, as well as his own book series, 2099 and Diadem. Our attendees will have a chance to chat with him about all of these, as well as his personal experiences as a writer.

InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?

John Peel: Far too many! One would have to be my friend Alan Brennert. Alan’s written some well-loved “Batman” comics, he’s story-edited and written for TV shows Like “Wonder Woman”, “Buck Rogers” and “The Twilight Zone”. Currently he’s writing some well-received novels such as “Honolulu” and “Molokai”. And, along with all of that, he’s a very nice fellow (even if he does like to laugh at my mis-pronouncing Spanish street names in LA…)

IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?

JP: That an awful lot of editors who claim they’d love to read your latest manuscript are lying. If I’d known that, it would have saved me a lot of time and anxiety.

IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?

JP: Me. Well, my stories! If they liked or hated them, what they enjoyed, what they think might have made them better. That’s the best way for me to gauge whether or not I’m doing the right thing, and hopefully to improve. No matter how much you’ve written, there’s always room for improvement, isn’t there?

IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?

JP: Well, I have to confess that would be Dwight Schultz. I watched “The A-Team” purely to see what craziness he’d get up to. And when he was cast as Barclay on “Star Trek – The Next Generation”, I knew we’d be in for a treat, and he didn’t disappoint. I do want to get him to autograph something that might surprise him (no, not an H.M. Murdock figure mint in box – though I do have one!) – one of my novels. I like the idea of him signing one of my own books to me… I should add that it’s because Barclay is a character in it!

IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?

JP: Meeting the staff and the fans again. I know that sounds like I’m kissing up, but it’s quite true – I have such a wonderful time with everyone, and (despite my fabled British reserve) I get and give a lot of very sincere hugs. These conventions wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if all of these wonderful people weren’t involved. I’d name names, except I ain’t no squealer.
