John Stocker – Guest of Honour

For almost 5 decades, John Stocker has been a recognized force in the acting industry. He began his career as an on-camera performer, working with the likes of John Candy, Dan Ackroyd, Rick Moranis, Gilda Radner, William Shatner and Mark Wahlberg, before settling solely, but comfortably, into the off-camera world, where he has voiced many thousands of commercials and hundreds of animated characters. A lot of you will recognize some of his classic roles – Beastly in Care Bears, Longarm in COPS, Toad in Super Mario Brothers, Newton Gimmick in Teddy Ruxpin, Creed in X-Men, Basil in Babar, Bugsy in Dog City, Ultron in The Avengers and both Naga and King Zenoheld in Bakugan. Still very active today, John is the voice of Mr. Owl in Franklin, Skillsworthy in The 3 Amigonauts and Einstein in Peg + Cat.

Over the years, John diversified his career to include voice casting, voice coaching, (both commercial and animation), demo production, and the discipline that keeps him busiest, voice directing. He’s been at the helm for many dozens of productions, including Totally Spies, Caillou, Fugget About It, Redakai, Mike the Knight, (the original) Beyblade, Medabots, Ella the Elephant and of course, the one that started his voice directing career, the one and only Sailor Moon.
